Ones in a Lifetime is a global celebration of world unity taking place on 11/11/11, coinciding with Veteran's Day and Armistice Day. On the day of the event, the Ones in a Lifetime website will stream live video from parties around the world as the clock strikes 11:11 in each time zone.

Ones in a Lifetime

We are all one in our humanity.

In a world full of unstable economies, wide-spread conflict, and more than enough bad news, a moment of optimism and connection is emerging: The “Ones in a Lifetime” event. What began as a fun idea to celebrate a unique moment in time has evolved into a growing group of members from around the world joining to celebrate world unity, and to work together to effect positive change.

The “Ones in a Lifetime” concept originated when its founder recognized that, on 11/11/11 at 11:11:11, the time and date are all “1”. This unique combination of time and date inspired an idea to gather friends from around the world together on a web-site (, linking video broadcasts of individual parties to toast that moment as it arrived in each time zone. Word of the “Ones in a Lifetime” celebration began to spread among friends. As November 11 is Veterans Day (Armistice Day, Remembrance Day) the theme of the event is a celebration that, like the time and the date, “We are all ‘1’ in our humanity.” “If world peace were easy to achieve, we would already have it,” says founder Dan Shutt. “We believe that peace requires action, and is not just the absence of conflict. It’s exciting to see so many people joining together to first celebrate that which connects us all, and then move forward with a platform to build a better future. Peace will not occur in a day, but this unique time and date do afford us the opportunity to pause and consider ways we can make things better.”

A Facebook page ( has been built, featuring the four fundamental drivers of the event: Unity, Celebration, Connection and Future. The Facebook page directs viewers to the website, where membership is free and growing both domestically and internationally. The website features music videos relating to the word or number 1, membership contests, promotions from sponsors and partners, with additional features being added as the event draws near. As members submit plans for their individual and community parties, they will be listed on the website and considered for inclusion in a live video stream broadcast simultaneously on the website and Facebook. With members in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Cypress, Uganda, Canada, Puerto Rico, the Netherlands, and more, the Ones in a Lifetime concept has shown wide-spread appeal. Membership is free and open for all, the site is kept family-friendly, and members shape the event through their creative suggestions. Interested people can visit the website to see what the plans are, add their input, and be a part of making history.

Membership on the website is free for individuals, and Ones in a Lifetime provides free affiliation and promotion for non-profits and Veterans’ organizations. Small businesses can feature themselves on the website and sponsor the event for as little as $11.11, making this event all-inclusive. Corporate Partnership opportunities are available by contacting partner(at)onesinalifetime(dot)com.
