Bridging the gap between the overwhelming absence of world peace
and the individual's desire to help create it while healing the lives
of the world's 42 million people displaced by war and violence.


Welcome!


What if there really was such a thing as a peace machine?

Two Internet entrepreneurs asked themselves that very question during the summer of 2006 and answered it by devoting the next two and a quarter years to creating  peace-making technology that caused  the grandson of the legendary man most people associate with peace, Mahatma Gandhi, to say  “…will lighten the burden of peacemakers everywhere.”

Welcome to new world giving and the humanitarian project known as 10 Million Clicks For Peace® 

One of our members described our project as “a legacy leaving machine”. Others have called it the world’s largest virtual peace movement and even World Peace 2.0

However you choose to think about us we believe in creating world peace through personal empowerment. That means empowering your life, and the lives of your loved ones on a very personal level as well as giving you the power to design the very future you want for yourself and for those you will leave behind.


 

Who We Are

Founders Julian Kalmar and Rick Beneteau had the crazy idea that they could do what no politician or world leader has ever been able to do -- create a real path to world peace. They decided that with one-fifth of the world's inhabitants connected together by the Internet, and their knowledge of Internet marketing, coupled with their mutually strong desire to do good in the world, they would create a 21st century solution that creates the preconditions for world peace while healing the damage done to victims of war and violence all over the world.

About the Founders


Julian Kalmar

Julian is a physicist at heart who anticipated spending the rest of his life in the engineering and scientific world. However, in 2002, a serious spine injury profoundly altered his life and his perspective. He never imagined working on a peace project, let alone leading a movement, yet his vision and efforts have helped shape 10 Million Clicks For Peace into what it is today.

His previous experience includes 5 years at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, working in radiation-effects testing of semiconductor devices, and building one of the world's first large parallel-computers. He spent 9 years working in electronics, 13 years in software development, and 2 years repairing industrial machines (some as big as a house).

His ability to remain happy after a serious spine injury led his friends to shake their heads and marvel. He found himself trapped in bed 22 hours a day; unable to work, unable to drive or walk around freely. He lost his car and a 6-figure income. Yet he remained happy.

After the first year in bed, he received a letter from an unhappy friend. He began his reply with hopes of imparting what he knew about happiness—in spite of difficulties. Thirty-five pages later, he realized he had a serious problem…much more to say and not enough paper. It was then he realized that writing a book could help many find greater happiness. That book opened the door to a remarkable spiritual transformation that reconnected him to the teachings from his early life with his grandparents. They showed him how to be live happily regardless of circumstances, but they had done something far greater.

His grandparents taught him what it meant to be a war refugee, and it was this knowledge that was to change his life and inspire 10MC some 35 years later, long after their passing. 

While taking a break from writing his book, Julian became profoundly moved by a documentary on the plight of Afghanistan's 1 million war refugees. During the program, he found himself looking straight into the eyes of a family who could have been his own grandparents 60 years earlier. In that moment, decades vanished, and he "connected." He knew immediately that part of the proceeds of his book would go to help war refugees, yet it would take 4 years before he would finally come to know the sheer scope of the project he would come to lead.

10 Million Clicks For Peace is Julian's path to repaying—with compound interest—the anonymous gifts of kindness bestowed on his grandparents, kindnesses that allowed them to survive their experience as war refugees. Those kindnesses are responsible for Julian's very existence.

Julian takes no credit for 10 Million Clicks For Peace. He believes the project was inspired. He is just an instrument of the Universe…doing what the Universe is best at: Connecting.

 


Rick Beneteau

Professional Song-writing. Throughout the 1970's and 80's, while "firing up the dry-cleaning boilers" at 5 am, six days a week, Rick pursued his musical passion; writing, recording, and pitching songs. He won Billboard Magazine's International Songwriting Competition the first two years running, and other major music competitions.

Music publishers and recording companies started picking up his material, so he sold his dry-cleaning business in the 1990’s to form a music production company. He spent two years building a professional recording facility in his home. Unfortunately, in the same month his production company launched, his marriage ended, and his studio and music royalties were seized by the divorce court

Internet Entrepreneur. Devastated, and unwilling to lead the starving artist lifestyle, Rick made his way to the Internet and began using his entrepreneurial and creative skills to become one of the original Internet marketers. He was the first person to write about joint-venturing as a means of Internet marketing, and many of the biggest Internet marketers in the world, owe their start to Rick's pioneering work.

He went on to create top-selling marketing products, like: Ezine Marketing Machine, Branding You, and Breaking the Bank, and he originated the Internet's first two-tier affiliate program with his traveling billboards, I.D. IT! Plates.

Personal Growth Expert. Rick's articles and quotes have been featured in hundreds of Internet newsletters as well as in magazines and print books. One of his most popular quotations is:

Give a shelterless man tools and he will build a home
Inspire him, encourage him, give him vision, and he will build an empire.

Philanthropy. In 2001, Rick founded the Internet's first toy drive, an online holiday mainstay for eight years. Recruiting the top Internet marketers in large promotional campaigns aimed at making sure no child is left without at least one gift under the Christmas tree, InternetToyDrive.org is a corporate sponsor in direct affiliation with the official "Toys for Tots" program.

Entrepreneurial 9/11 Transition. The tragic events of September 11, 2001 affected Rick so profoundly that he decided to change direction from helping people build online businesses to simply helping build people. His breakthrough ebook from 2002, Success: A Spiritual Matter, the first in a series of products that bridge business success and spirituality, remains an entrepreneur's favorite to this day.

In 2003, Rick's first print book, A Large Slice of Life to Go, Please! was published, landing him the prestigious Pinnacle Book Achievement Award and many high-level endorsements.

His current line of NLP products like Quit Smoking Right Now, Make Every Day A Great Day and Better Sales Right Now, are licensed by some of the world’s top self-development entities.

10 Million Clicks Founder. On the morning of July 15, 2006, Rick was downloading his usual hundreds of emails. It would be a morning that would profoundly affect his life.  

The first email was a CNN Breaking News Alert outlining the latest gory details about the bloodbath in the Middle East. It literally made him nauseous. The second was from Julian Kalmar, a man Rick hardly knew. Julian explained that he couldn't sleep that night, fearing for the lives of two friends, one in Lebanon, and one in Israel, friends he could no longer reach and whom he feared had been killed. He wrote that he had asked the Universe what he could possibly do to help, and immediately, "10 Million Votes for Peace" jumped into his mind. That was Rick's cue to call Julian. At 6:42 a.m. they began discussing the project that became known as 10 Million Clicks for Peace.

Two years later, Rick is as enthusiastic as ever that the work he's doing will change the world. The Peace Impact Meter (i.e. Peace Machine) technology he developed with Julian Kalmar opens the doors of philanthropy wide to the waves of regular folks who want to help, but don't know what to do. "Now they know exactly what to do and can see measurable results right on their computers and cell phones. We'll empower millions to create world peace for their children, their grandchildren, and themselves, and I believe we'll reach the tipping point for peace.. This is the legacy I want to leave, and this work is how I'm spending the rest of my life."
