Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
In 2014 the Ring of Peace (RoP) was conceived by Robin Dunseath, a marketeer and philanthropist, who understood that conflict is seen as an active process and peace as inactive. RoP aims to change that concept, allowing people all over the world to be actively involved in promoting peace. The idea immediately appealed to Peter Ferris, an acting teacher and filmmaker, who this year was selected as a Top 50 teacher in the Global Teacher Prize. Peter jumped on board and helped to deliver the first 3 years of activity, before recruiting Tom Swanston, an award-winning filmmaker.
Historically, the level of peace in a country or community has been in the hands of governments and large corporations. RoP will use technology, social media and live events to put this power into the hands of ordinary people.
Each year we hold an open competition to select a Message of Peace, which is then passed around the world by phone on the UN International Day of Peace, 21st September.
2014 - message passed through 100 messengers in 52 countries.
2015 - 100 countries took part and the message was finally delivered to our first Spirit of Peace Dinner: a gala evening.
2016 - the Ring included involvement and support from acting stars including Michael Sheen (The Queen, Underworld, Twilight), Claire Sweeney (Brookside, Loose Women, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), Lucas Rush (Fame, Chicago, American Idiot) and Newton Faulkner (songwriter and perfomer with two number 1 albums to his name).
We have now formed a registered not-for-profit organisation to increase our activities and the number of people involved.
2018 marks the centenary of the end of World War 1. We will create a fantastic array of activities for people to get involved in, including: a Ring of 1000 people from at least 100 countries, and separate messages of peace sent round Ringlets such as hospitals, theatres, museums & conflict zones.
