Introduction 

Covid-19 is found in many places around the world, with the serious effect of increasing domestic violence, bullying, sexual harassment and child abuse. In some countries domestic violence has increased by 40%!

 

Help us fight violence of all kinds by supporting the mission of The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVPF), a non-profit educational organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, established in 1993 and operating in 11 countries out of four continents. We own and cherish the rights to the knotted pistol, the sculpture created by Carl Fredrik Reutersward in tribute to his friend John Lennon and universal symbol of non-violence, with its original placed outside the UN headquarters in New York.
 

Our mission is to INSPIRE, MOTIVATE and ENGAGE people to understand how to resolve conflicts peacefully. Since 1993, the Foundation has trained more than 8 million people, including students, teachers, trainers and sports coaches. The Foundation has received numerous awards such as the Bill Clinton Daily Light Award and the Barack Obama Foundation Award.

This auction will allow the Foundation to pursue the development of its educational programs, reach more children and adults and ensure the sustainability of its activities.
 

By participating in this charity auction, you will be able to acquire a rare and/or unique “lot” and support a great cause!
 

100% of the donations will go directly to The Non-Violence Project Foundation https://www.nonviolence.com/.

We thank you in advance for your support and generosity.
