Light the Darfur Wall

Darfur Wall

Most of us have heard of the ongoing Darfur conflict in Sudan.

It’s estimated that 2.5 million people have been displaced, and around 400,000 killed in the conflict.

Last week I came across the Darfur Wall website. The site provides this description:

400,000 numbers cover The Darfur Wall. Each represents a person killed in Darfur. By donating $1 or more you can light a number, turning it from dark gray to brilliant white. As we light the wall, we acknowledge the importance of each life lost, cast light upon a tragedy too many have ignored, and overcome one barrier to peace.

100% of donations are donated equally to four different charitable organizations. Plus, the website is pretty cool. :) Consider lighting a few numbers on the site and help spread the word!
