Jeremy Gilley is an actor turned filmmaker, who in the late 1990s became preoccupied with questions about the fundamental nature of humanity and the issue of peace. He decided to explore these through the medium of film, and specifically, to create a documentary following his campaign to establish an annual day of ceasefire and non-violence. In 1999, Jeremy founded Peace One Day, a non-profit organisation, and in 2001 Peace One Day’s efforts were rewarded when the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September annually – Peace Day.
In 2007 Jeremy and Peace One Day ambassador Jude Law travelled to Afghanistan to spearhead a campaign that has resulted in 4.5 million children being vaccinated against polio in hitherto unreachable areas as a result of Peace Day agreements by all parties in the region in 2007/8/9. In 2010, millions of people were active on Peace Day, in all 192 UN member states, and 28 organisations carried out 88 humanitarian activities across 31 countries. For Peace Day 2010, in Afghanistan WHO/UNICEF/Afghan Ministry of Public Health vaccinated over 50,000 children and women in 23 locations against all vaccine-preventable diseases. They also launched a nationwide polio campaign targeting 8 million children across the country.
Peace One Day’s objective is to institutionalise Peace Day, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known. For Peace Day 2012, Peace One Day is calling for and working towards a day of ceasefire and non-violence – the Global Truce 2012 campaign. POD hopes that this will be the largest reduction in global violence in recorded history, both domestically and internationally – what is hoped will be a world record.
Peace One Day is reaching out to students worldwide, to young people, to lead this process and gather together as one on Peace Day 21 September.
Global Angels are an international charity, championing the causes of disadvantaged children and their communities around the world. They have a dream – a dream of a vast network of “Angels” – people like you and me, from all ages and cultures, uniting together through our donations, skills and resources, transforming the world we live in and creating pathways to a sustainable planet.
Drawing on an international team of professionals and volunteers, we work in partnerships resourcing best-practice-projects which empower children, young people and communities – our ‘100% Projects‘.
Known as ‘The 100% Charity’, through our ‘100% Promise‘ we give every penny we receive from public donations directly to the ’100% Projects’ we partner with on the ground; providing water, food, education, homes, medical care and resources to transform lives. We host the ‘Angels in Concert’ series, events and adventures, raising funds to empower children, young people and their communities whether they are living in extreme poverty or disadvantage, devastated environmental conditions, with disability or life threatening illness, are street kids, orphans, child slaves, trafficked kids, or child soldiers.
The Global Love Festival is also in alliance with the Last Night A DJ Saved My Life foundation. You can find out more about this wonderful initiative that supports charity ventures at our website page here, and at their website: www.LastNightADJSavedMyLife.org
