What We’re Pinning: Today, a Message of Understanding with Pins for Peace

By Emily Terrell

Today, in honor of the UN International Day of Peace, we’ve created “Pins for Peace,” promoting messages of non-violence, understanding and compassion. Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said, “Poverty devastates families, communities and nations. It causes instability and political unrest and fuels conflict.” Opportunity provides financial services around the world because we know that when economies are strengthened, then peace, health and stability reign. Without stability and order, our clients cannot make a living and grow their businesses, hampering their chances to create a better future for themselves and their children, and locking them into a cycle of poverty. Spread the word about this important day and share these messages of peace on Pinterest and Twitter. Use #pinsforpeace and together let’s promote peace on earth!
