No Toy Guns!

"NO TOY GUNS" MERIT AWARDS OFFERED TO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES WHO PLEDGE TO NOT BUY OR PLAY WITH TOY GUNS

"If we are to create peace in our world, we must begin with our children."
—Mahatma Ghandi

In the spirit of Mahatma Ghandi's message, and following the violent gun killing of 26 people, including 20 children ages 6 and 7, at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, the Alliance for Survival peace group based in Santa Monica, California will once again resume their "No Toy Guns Merit Award Project", offering the awards to children and families who pledge to not buy or play with toy guns.

Longtime peace activist and project coordinator Jerry Rubin says the free personalized 8-1/2" by 11" suitable for framing merit awards can be obtained by sending a letter or email stating "Why I will not buy toy guns for my children" and that parents can also help younger children compose their own letters, if the children are not yet old enough to compose it themselves, stating "Why I do not like to play with toy guns."

Pledge letters should be e-mailed to Jerry Rubin at: JerryPeaceActivistRubin@earthlink.net or mailed to: Alliance for Survival, Attn: Jerry Rubin, 2035 Fourth Street #103-C, Santa Monica, CA 90405. People are reminded to please include the spelling of the child's name that the merit award should be made out to, as well as the return mailing address. Please also include the child's age. If requesting a merit award by mail, people are asked to enclose $1 to cover return postage.

Any donations to help support this project are deeply appreciated. Please make contributions (not tax deductible) out to Alliance for Survival and send to the above mailing address.
