In this week’s blog, we’re thanking an old friend. And although he requested neither thanks nor our recommendation, we’re recommending him anyway. Dr. David Sharaf is a sponsor of the Humanity Project — and he has just continued that sponsorship for another year. We use his services personally and have done so for more than a decade.

Notice anything new? Just look at the top of this website, at the menu listings. You’ll find one has been added, something called “PeacePage.” Here’s the direct link to make it easy for you to see what we’re talking about: www.thehumanityproject.com/peacepage. We are very, very proud to host it on the Humanity Project site. Created by the Humanity Project in close partnership with our friend and member, Haikaa Yamamoto, PeacePage is a collaboration among nonprofit groups from all seven continents, as well as individuals from around the world. Yep, we even have Antarctica represented — twice.

The Humanity Project is growing, expanding — and reaching out to more people than ever. Our signature program remains Anti-bullying Through The Arts, of course, and we’re committed to making sure this effective anti-bullying system reaches as many children as possible, now and for years to come. But we’re also connecting in new ways, even going international as part of our efforts. As part of this, we have formed a wonderful blog and photo exchange with the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, a respected and non-religious nonprofit organization based in Cairo.

We were most pleased recently to come across a report that should give us all hope that society is moving in the right direction. An international think tank, the Millennium Project, just published a huge new study that shows our world is becoming a much better place to live than in the past. The data reveal that pessimism about the human race is grounded more in our distorted short-term perspective than in reality.

The Humanity Project’s highly regarded Anti-bullying Through The Arts program is on a record pace this year. We’re reaching many more kids in a short space of time than ever before. The new school year is just six weeks old. In that period, Anti-bullying Through The Arts has taught almost 3,000 elementary students, grades K – 5, our important lesson. As you may remember, that lesson is — “Bullying hurts everyone in this school and it takes everyone to stop it!”
