The Drive for Five campaign is a way for you to help grow WBW and it won’t cost you a dime. Here’s how to get started:
1. Email everyone you can, asking them to sign here and to enter your name as the person who referred them: https://worldbeyondwar.org/individual
Once you send us at least five names, we will post your name on our website honoring you as a Drive for Five Hero (unless you prefer anonymity)! But if that weren’t incentive enough, for every signature you bring in, we will credit you $1 towards the tuition for our on-line course, War Abolition 101, to be held Feb 18th to Mar 31st. Five names gets you $5 credit, 23 names–$23. For 100 names you can participate in the course for free!
1. Print a copy of our sign-up sheet.
2. Gather signatures, by asking your family members, neighbors, and friends to sign it. Take it to any public event, or go door to door. It isn’t hard to find people who agree with the Declaration of Peace!
3. Mail it or email a photo of it, as instructed on the sign-up sheet. (Names must include email addresses, which must be legible and functioning.)
Same rewards apply.
Why a Drive for Five:
World BEYOND War got its start five years ago by asking people to sign on to the WBW Declaration of Peace:
I understand that wars and militarism make us less safe rather than protect us, that they kill, injure and traumatize adults, children and infants, severely damage the natural environment, erode civil liberties, and drain our economies, siphoning resources from life-affirming activities. I commit to engage in and support nonviolent efforts to end all war and preparations for war and to create a sustainable and just peace.
75,000 people have now signed in 175 countries! When you stop to think about the organizing potential those numbers represent, it’s pretty exciting, but we need more! On our fifth birthday we are launching the “Drive for Five” campaign. We are asking each of our members (you!) to find five more people to join WBW. If each one of you 100,000 receiving this email found five, that would be half a million! If you found more, then it would be, well more!
World BEYOND War is only as strong as our membership. We know that it is going to take a massive, coordinated, international effort to accomplish our mission of ending war forever, and our strength increases with every new person and organization who signs on. Please join us in our Drive for Five campaign!
