Peter Hwoschinsky releases new CD
Congratulations to TCLP Board-member (and Children of Abraham co-producer) Peter Hwoschinsky for his new CD. “And I Trust” has been influenced by Peter’s work with the Compassionate Listening Project over the last four years. He also continues to support our work by donating 10% to TCLP (100% for all sales in Israel and the Palestinian territories). You can download mp3 files and order the CD directly from his website.
A heart-felt thank you to those who have signed on to our three-year pledge drive. It has provided us with a stronger base from which to plan and prioritize our work. Pledge envelopes for 2001 will be mailed out shortly. We need your support! Our special programs this year include:
- Training Israeli and Palestinian Compassionate Listening trainers to carry on this work in their own communities;
- A traveling photographic exhibition of the Compassionate Listening Project;
- Expanding our Compassionate Listening delegations to include other countries in the Middle East;
- New video projects to help reconnect and humanize across “enemy” lines;
We are also seeking support to hire a grantwriter to help us fund our larger projects. You can make a tax-deductible donation directly from our website or mail your donation to us at: TCLP/P.O. Box 17/Indianola, WA 98342.
Our gratitude to the Firedoll Foundation for their support of our video work; to Anne Flatte for taking on the newsletter.
