We are most humble in our endeavor to inspire thousands of children throughout the world. It has been such a joy to know that these children and teens, excitedly await in anticipation, year after year to express their creativity and talent in our Peace Pals International Art Exhibition. The network of participants and countries continue to expand! More than four thousand drawings from thirty-nine countries were submitted by the world’s future artists and peacemakers who have embraced the Universal Message May Peace Prevail On Earth with such impeccable detail to compliment this year’s theme “Friendship.”

It fills our hearts to “see” through their eyes, how they view their world, with the promise of hope, with the innocence and fearlessness of their love for one another, nature and the animal kingdom. They truly get it!

Let us applaud them ALL. They are ALL winners!

In the spirit of Community, Unity and Universal Oneness,

May Peace Prevail On Earth!
