NATIONWIDE PEACE BUS TOURS
Summer of 2008 – PPOE launched the Peace Has Begun campaign designed to reposition the word “Peace” from a noun into a tactical verb the transforms the meaning of peace into actionable activities that address key social issues that impact children, teens, adults, families, schools, cities, communities, and states. Two broadcast journalists traveled on the bus interviewing people on the streets, civic leaders, national best selling authors, university leaders and famed celebrities to discover their personal pathway to peace and how they apply this daily to make the world a better place and place of peace.
On September 28-29th, 2010 our Medical Mission helped to restore the eye-sight of 40 elderly people. PPOE Founder, Steve Robertson, lead a medical mission which brought a famed eye surgical team to Saint John’s Eye Hospital in Hebron Palestine.

INTERNATIONAL AERIAL ART PEACE IMAGES AND INITIATIVES
On November 25th, 2011 we brought 1000 Palestinian Refugee Children to the base of the Mount of Temptation in Jericho. They were then guided to form the image of the Picasso Peace Dove and spell out the words “Love All”. The image of the Dove and words “Love All”, which was filmed and shot aerially, sent out a message of love and hope for other children and adults worldwide. In September 2012 the UN selected this image, out of 800,000 pictures, as one of the 49 most iconic images since the organization’s inception.
12.24.12, Christmas Eve, in Manger Square Bethlehem, Boy and Girl scout troops lead additional Palestinian youth to participate in forming a human “Peace Symbol and spelling the words “Love All” to send an aerial image message of Christmas love, peace and joy to the world.
December 31st, 2012, New Years Eve, as part of a Project Peace On Earth “Free All” peace initiative, hundreds of boy and girl scouts join in solidarity at the Dividing Wall in front of the Israeli guard tower, just next to the famed Entry Gate of the Patriarch in Bethlehem (the historical original road into Bethlehem). Here, the scouts form the message “Free All” and express a continuous image of permanent handprints that send a prayerful plea to all world leaders and the brotherhood of all scouts to bring the Israeli Dividing Wall down and to establish a lasting freedom, justice and peace for all. President Abbas delivers a speech to the boy and girl scouts on the importance and historic significance of their participation in the PPOE “Free All” aerial art initiative. (“Free All” making of video montage and President Abbas speech soon to be released)
PPOE Founder and CEO, Steve Robertson, helps to heal the wall before boy and girl scouts participate in the Free All initiative.
