Martin Sheen Launches Campaign for PeaceJam, SELF, & PSR

Martin Sheen, Larry Hagman, Desmond Tutu and several other celebrities launched a “Refunds for Good” campaign today (see www.refundsforgood.org) to benefit the PeaceJam Foundation and two other leading non-profit organizations. Due to five recent court rulings, $10 billion is owed by the IRS to American businesses, and another $10 billion to individual citizens. This refund is only being offered during this current tax season. The average individual refund will be between $30 to $60, and businesses could be eligible for potentially tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars. The “Refunds for Good” website was created to address this historic opportunity, and to make it easier for the American people to learn about this court-mandated refund.

The mission of the PeaceJam Foundation is to create a new generation of young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates. Since its inception in 1996, more than 500,000 youth have participated in the PeaceJam program. Over 300,000 service projects have been created and implemented by participating youth, and over 130 PeaceJam youth events have taken place in 10 different countries around the world.

In September of 2006, the PeaceJam Foundation hosted the largest gathering of Nobel Peace Laureates in US history, and launched a 10 year “Global Call to Action” addressing 10 of the most vexing problems facing the planet today. The Nobel Peace Laureates hope to inspire 1 billion “Global Action” projects worldwide by the year 2016. The two other non-profit organizations highlighted on the “Refunds for Good” website are the Solar Electric Light Fund and Physicians for Social Responsibility.
