Thank A UN Peacekeeper Today

July 3, 2013

TAPK-contentIn July 2013, the United Nations deployed more than 12,000 Peacekeepers to Mali, a war-torn country in West Africa. Mali has transformed from a highly respected, democratic nation into a terrorist breeding ground following a coup d’état in early 2012. As a Chapter Leader, you can support these Peacekeepers and their vital work by encouraging your Chapter members and greater community to send thank you notes through the Thank a Peacekeeper Campaign.

In partnership with the Better World Campaign, UNA-USA presents an opportunity to rally entire communities behind the work of the United Nations, while supporting the vital work of UN Peacekeepers. At Chapters’ requests, UNA-USA will distribute “Thank a Peacekeeper Cards” to communities across the United States. Chapters will use these cards to collect thank you notes and contact information from individuals throughout their communities.

To acknowledge UNA-USA Chapters for taking part in the effort, the Better World Campaign will invite the Presidents from the three Chapters that return the most UN Peacekeeper thank you notes to New York City to present the notes to the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations, who will deliver them to UN Peacekeepers in the field. The Better World Campaign will arrange and pay for round-trip coach airfare and two-night hotel accommodation for Chapter presidents or their designees.

One Chapter will be selected from each of the following categories:

Large Chapters (More than 100 members)

Medium Chapters (50 – 100 members)

Small Chapters (Fewer than 50 members)

To request paper thank you note cards, please email your request to membership@unausa.org and 50 cards will be mailed to your Chapter. Thank you notes may also be submitted online. Be sure to instruct your members to select their Chapter when writing their thank you notes!
