#BOOKMARKS2ENDFGM April Campaign

While doing my educational workshops addressing FGM to youth, I've collected so many hand made bookmarks, posters, postcards, painted fabrics, "small" pieces of Art with a HUGE meaning to share and donate with friends, relatives, teacher, schoolmates, etc...
I decided to launch the #bookmarks2endfgm campaign before school closing.

During the month of April, starting from tomorrow  
I'll launch on TWITTER the 
BOOKMARKS2ENDFGM campaign using the hashtag
  #bookmarks2endfgm  

Through the hashtag we collect significant phrases to
RAISE AWARENESS ON FGM
 and invite every person to do his/her own bookmark and donate it to a friend asking to send the picture of the bookmark  on twitter or via mail using the same hashtag 


HOW IT WORKS

PART ONE


Think at a significant phrase that will raise awareness on  FGM trying to chose inclusive non judgemental terms (positive ideas about the importance of our body' s integrity, on education and culture, on empowerment, etc...) that may inspire others to take action and share it by posting the phrase on TWITTER using the hashtag #bookmarks2endfgm  or via MAIL writing in the subject line the hashtag #bookmarks2endfgm
and in the body of the mail your phrase.

THE PHRASE CAN BE IN ANY LANGUAGE 
 POSSIBLY PROVIDE A TRANSLATION

PART TWO

- CREATE your own Bookmark using your creativity with your own phrase
- DONATE it to a friend, school mate, colleague, relative, librarian, bookseller, teacher, doctor
- SEND a picture of your Bookmark

You can use
TWITTER using the hashtag #bookmarks2endfgm
FACEBOOK using the hashtag #bookmarks2endfgm

or as an attachment via

MAIL
writing in the subject line the hashtag
#bookmarks2endfgm

NOTE
- every BOOKMARK should have the hashtag  #bookmarks2endfgm on it even if in small letters
- anyone can participate, there's no limit of age and you don't need any artistic skill
