We will achieve success when more people have access to better education, which is why we proudly support events and programs like the All Children in School Program.
(Vocus/PRWEB) February 14, 2011
The International Brain Education Association announced today that it has donated $10,000 to UNICEF to support the All Children in School Program. The program is a joint commitment between UNICEF and Audrey Hepburn’s Children Fund to bring quality education to 115,000 children in developing nations.
The donation was made possible through the International Brain Education Association’s Earth Citizen Movement, which was founded in 2008 to support the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals and raise awareness of how people can consciously promote a world of greater peace and cooperation.
The International Brain Education Association was founded by Ilchi Lee, author and founder of Dahn Yoga, Brain Education, Brain Wave Vibration and numerous meditation methods that utilize ki energy in pursuit of healing and peace. Ilchi Lee also serves as the Association’s president.
“My vision is to make the earth a more peaceful, happy, and healthy place by creating 100 million Earth Citizens--people who know that the earth and our brains are the common denominator among all people who seek peace and harmony, who share my vision of the earth and who actively use their brains creatively to manifest it,” said Lee. “We will achieve success when more people have access to better education, which is why we proudly support events and programs like the All Children in School Program.”
According to Lee, success in creating world of peace and cooperation is deeply related to how we perceive our identity.
“You should think of yourself as an Earth Citizen,” says Lee. “An Earth Citizen is someone who recognizes the planet Earth as the primary element uniting all humanity. It’s someone willing to commit to a new self identity that transcends race, nationality, gender, religion, profession and preferences.”
Earth Citizens symbolize their commitment to promoting peace by donating $12. Besides receiving ongoing donations, the International Brain Education Association organizes fundraising events that share the Earth Citizen spirit. It collects these donations for the benefit and success of United Nations programs, including the All Children in School Program.
