Ok craftivistas so right now we approaching the moment that all our #imapiece Craftivist Jigsaws &  campaigning it has all been leading to: The upcoming Hunger and G8 summits in June are the chance to end the scandal of hunger once and for all. We need to show world leaders that we are watching, waiting for real results & want them to join us in being part of the solution to world hunger rather than the problem.

Craft Area- Get making windmills!

On the day Save the Children will be creating a giant visual petition. This will be made out of spinning flowers, a reminder of the 2 million children who die because of hunger every year. You can help them to complete this visual petition by adding your spinning flower on the day. You can find a guide to making your flower and flower template here.

Save the Children will also have their own craft area on the day where, with help from some of our Craftivists we can all get crafty, make your individual windmill and meet lots of lovely people- we will be showcasing the I’m a Piece Installation too. You have been such an important part of the campaign to end hunger so far so we would love you to join others and play an important role on this big day too!

Spread the Word

Everyone is welcome so please so spread the word and invite all friends and family, get tweeting or write a blog about the event. Even if you aren’t able to come yourself it would be great if you could spread the word.

Life is like a puzzle, it seems a mess …

but when it gets fixed it looks awesome!
