How Your Donations Are Used

We are proud to help further the work of the following non-profit organizations that work in-the-field every day to saves lives and provide food, shelter, clothing, medicine - and above all, HOPE - to victims of war and violence:


Mercy Corps

Founded in 1979, Mercy Corp has worked to provide relief and long-term development, strengthening civil society and inspiring the individual courage it takes to overcome poverty, injustice and oppression. Since its inception, Mercy Corps has provided $1 billion in assistance to people in 82 nations. Mercy Corps pursues its mission through: emergency relief services that assist people afflicted by conflict or disaster; sustainable economic development that integrates agriculture, health, housing and infrastructure, economic development, education and environment, and local management; and civil society initiatives that promote citizen participation, accountability, conflict management and the rule of law.


International Rescue Committee

Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is a world leader in relief, rehabilitation, protection, post-conflict development, resettlement services and advocacy for those uprooted or affected by violent conflict and oppression. At work in 25 countries, the IRC delivers lifesaving aid in emergencies, rebuilds shattered communities, cares for war-traumatized children, rehabilitates health care, water and sanitation systems, reunites separated families, restores lost livelihoods, establishes schools, trains teachers, strengthens the capacity of local organizations and supports civil society and good-governance initiatives. For refugees afforded sanctuary in the US, IRC offices provide a range of assistance aimed at helping new arrivals get settled, adjust and acquire the skills to become self-sufficient.


Refugee International

Founded in 1979, Refugees International (RI) generates lifesaving humanitarian assistance and protection for displaced people around the world and works to end the conditions that create displacement. RI acts first and foremost as a witness to the suffering of the displaced. Their advocates spend weeks in the field interviewing and meeting with war-affected populations, non-governmental organizations and aid agencies. RI conducted missions in over 20 countries in 2004. They assess humanitarian problems, identify the most urgent needs and move quickly to develop immediate solutions to those needs. RI's advocacy generates increases in resources and policy changes by governments and UN agencies that improve conditions for refugees and displaced people.


Women for Women International

Founded in 1993, Women for Women International (WWI) helps women in war-torn regions rebuild their lives by providing financial and emotional support, job skills training, rights awareness and leadership education and access to business skills, capital and markets. Through the program, women become confident, independent and productive as they embrace the importance of their roles in rebuilding their families, their communities and ultimately, their nations. They help women advance from being victims to attaining stability as survivors to becoming active citizens in their communities. Since its founding, WWI has served more than 55,000 women and distributed approximately $24 million in direct aid and microcredit loans.

 

We are also very proud to be able to assist Arun Gandhi in carrying on the work of his famous grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi, in promoting peace through non-violence.



M.K. Gandhi Institute for Non-Violence

The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence was founded in 1991 by the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Arun Gandhi, and his wife, Sunanda. The Gandhis provided seed money for the Institute through the sale of Gandhijiís letters to his son and daughter-in-law (Arunís parents), Manilal and Sushila. Sustaining funds come from contributions, publications, program fees, and grants. The Institute is hosted by Christian Brothers University, which graciously provides an office for their work on nonviolence.

We will also be funding carefully selected micro-projects involved in spreading peace and happiness throughout the world. Such projects will be listed on our website.

From time to time, 10 Million Clicks For Peace will be supporting initiatives that raise awareness and focus on one of the problems that contribute to the lack of peace as part of our peace education efforts. Such initiatives could include those that address poverty, hunger, water shortage, illiteracy, disease prevention and domestic violence. Donations collected as a result of promoting such initiatives will be sent to the applicable non-profit charities. (One such initiative is Blog Action Day 2008 which we supported on October 15, 2008.)


Clicks For Peace Fund™:  A Name You Can Trust

We, The World is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that is faithfully administering your donations via the Clicks For Peace Fund - a Trust Fund. This means your charitable donation goes where it's meant to, and because We, The World is an established non-profit, your donation can be tax deductible.

We, The World has formed international networks of collaboration and action to create a peaceful, sustainable world, and has such distinguished advisors and supporters as
Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Dr. Jane Goodall, Marianne Williamson and many others. Finally, We, The World gives us the opportunity to put a small percentage of funds aside, so that we can continue to work helping refugees and sponsoring peace education indefinitely.

In a nutshell, after credit card processing fees and the usual accounting and reporting fees, we only take out 2% for sustaining our efforts...1 percent for We, The World, and 1 percent for 10 Million Clicks For Peace. This means that an estimated 90% of what we collect (after the cost of manufacturing and shipping physical incentives), goes straight to helping refugees and sponsoring peace education/awareness (including our own efforts). In the non-profit charitable world, this is very efficient, and it is with minimal overhead on the charities' part.

This is the best of all possible worlds: The refugee charities gain additional funding without the burden of expanding their fundraising dollars or staff hours, and we don't have to worry about the logistics of supplying shelter, food, medicine, clothing and supplies to the refugees ourselves. This improves the efficiency of each organization, so we each do what we're best at doing. Best of all, there is more money available for the refugees who so desperately need our help.

[Note: During the period 2006-2009 the great majority of funding has gone towards peace education/awareness. Our intention is to direct the majority of future donations towards war refugee assistance until we balance out the apportionment described by the graph (above).]




Posters of Peace, and Pass Along Peace Card Redemptions

10MillionPosters.com and 10MillionCards.com are special projects facilitated by The Messenger Network (www.themessengernetwork.com). 10 Million Clicks For Peace chose The Messenger Network for its innovative methods of spreading awareness and reaching large numbers of people in a way that could make a significant impact on major world problems. Half the profit goes to help war refugees and peace education/awareness via the Clicks For Peace Fund, and the other half supports continuing operations of The Messenger Network. All profit is donated to the Clicks for Peace Fund for the free poster offer. 10 Million Clicks For Peace is very pleased to have found a noble partner in our effort to create a more peaceful world.

Thank you for your willingness to help create a better world, and for your trust in us to do what is most needed. Thanks to you, I believe that world peace is something we really can create in our lifetime.

My most heartfelt thanks.

I wish kindness and peace upon you.

Many blessings,

Julian Kalmar, Founder,
