PPI was thrilled to recently hear from Aaron Bilek, the Director of Students Taking Action for Medicine and Peace (STAMP) at McGill University. STAMP is McGill’s grassroots activist organization at the medical and dental faculties, open to the participation of all, that encourages students to take action to address important world problems.
This January, STAMP held a vernissage on McGill’s campus, exhibiting the winners of a photography contest called “Picturing Peace.” The winners were made into a calendar, with all proceeds going to PeacePlayers International. Besides raising awareness among the McGill community, STAMP raised $650 (Canadian) for PeacePlayers International’s work in the Middle East – that’s almost enough to fund two children in our program for an entire year!
PeacePlayers International sincerely thanks STAMP for their support, and wishes them the best of luck in their future projects. If you’d like more information about STAMP, you can email them here.
