Paul McCartney, who has been a committed long-term supporter and
Goodwill Ambassador for Adopt-A-Minefield said, The Night of a
Thousand Dinners is not only a great way to raise money for a just
cause, its also a good way for friends and families to have fun
together. He added, With the growing concerns about world hunger, it
should be a priority to clear arable land of landmines so that
communities can once again use their land to grow their own food. Some
music, some fantastic recipes from Jamie and hopefully, with your
help, well be able to raise the much needed funds for the cause.
About Night of a Thousand Dinners Started as a grassroots
effort, Night of a Thousand Dinners looks to individuals,
corporations, and communities across the globe to raise funds for
landmine removal and survivor assistance by hosting dinners.
Participants host dinners in homes, schools, churches, restaurants for
friends and families and in lieu of flowers or wine, they ask their
guests to donate to Adopt-A-Minefield. Night of Thousand Dinners
events are held in over 50 countries and have raised more than $4
million for mine action since 2001.
The global landmine crisis is one of the worlds most pervasive
problems, with an estimated 70 countries considered to be
mine-affected. Landmines are indiscriminate weapons that continue to
maim or kill tens of thousands of civilians every year. They cost as
little as $3 to produce, but as much as $1000 to remove.
The presence of landmines not only threatens peoples lives, but
they also contribute to hunger by preventing arable land from being
used for farming and economic development. Proceeds from N1KD are
forwarded to the United Nations for mine clearance and to select
partner organizations to support survivor assistance projects. AAM
currently works in six of the most heavily mined nations in the world,
Afghanistan, Bosnia, Herzegovina, Cambodia, Croatia, Mozambique and
Vietnam. Adopt-A-Minefield is a global fundraising and
awareness-building initiative working with partner campaigns in the
UK, Canada and Sweden.
Adopt-A-Minefield√Ç¬Æ is a campaign of the
United Nations Association of the USA in partnership with the United
Nations and Ted Turners Better World Fund. With partner campaigns in
the UK, Canada, and Sweden, Adopt-A-Minefield engages individuals,
community groups, and businesses in the United Nations effort to
resolve the global landmine crisis. Visit www.landmines.org to learn more.
