#GivingTuesday, December 3
#GivingTuesday is December 3, a global day of giving back to support the causes that are most dear to us. $2 trillion a year is spent on war. What would you pay for peace? Your support allows us to do our work day in and day out — the daily organizing that is necessary to educate and mobilize volunteers around the world to start up World BEYOND War chapters, divest their cities from war, and shut down bases in their communities.
Plus, between now and December 3, we’re giving back to our supporters!
• All donors get a free copy of our e-book A Global Security System: An Alternative to War
• Donate $125 or more & get a free registration for our next online course
• Make your gift recurring for $9+/month & get access to a special #GivingTuesday video chat with WBW Co-Founder David Swanson on December 3 at 8:00pm Eastern

Creating a Way to Close Military Bases
There is a measure in a bill in the U.S. Congress that, if it were to become law (which we’re told is increasingly likely), would require that the U.S. military explain to the U.S. Congress exactly how each foreign U.S. base makes the United States safer. Learn more and see a form for U.S. residents to send emails to Congress here.
