World Peace Day

On September 21, 2010 the UAB Anthropology Club held a bake sale, in observance of World Peace Day. All of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Amnesty International, an international human rights organization or Pathways, a shelter for abused women and children. Along with baked goods, peace sign jewelry was available for purchase. At the sale it was requested that customers make a donation to either charity in the amount of their choice amount in exchange for either a food item or jewelry.

Throughout the day student volunteers manned the table, bringing awareness to world peace day, and requsesting that people express their thoughts on peace, by writing it on a leaf and adding it to the peace tree.

There was also a peace day raffle. In order to participate people had to take a quiz testing their knowledge of global human rights issues. Each quiz was used as a ballot for the drawing. At the end of the day, three of the quizzes were chosen, determining the raffles third, second, and first place winners.The third place winner received a $10 gift certificate to the Golden Temple, second place received a $10 gift certificate to Lucy's Coffee and Tea, and the first place winner received a piece of Masi, traditional Fijian barkcloth.
