Plant a 7' Peace Pole (cost $125) saying "May Peace Prevail on Earth" in four languages. Or have a 6' Peace Pole with base for use indoors, cost $175. These poles can easily be moved from classroom to classroom, or place to place as needed, and used to celebrate annual World Peace day, or other events.
The Peace Poles come with a Certificate stating that 10 trees will be planted in an African Country in Honor of someone or organization you name on the certificate. The certificate presentation can be a part of the dedication ceremony. For these, make checks out to "May Peace Prevail on Earth International",. These will be forwarded to the World Peace Sanctuary, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that makes the Peace Poles.

May we have a Rotary Logo applied? This would put your Peace Pole on an International Map system showing Peace Poles supported by The Rotary Action Group. After a photo of the installation, date installed, and location is sent to us, the Rotary Club will provide a $30 rebate, which will be sent to the organization or youth group that planted the peace pole.
