Letter writing campaign for Darfur!!

Available for download right now is a letter to accompany our petition drive to help support sending peace keeping troops to Darfur! Download it here.

Easy as pie, sign it, or if you want to get creative write your own, and mail it to your corresponding rep! Here's some of their addresses, if you want to make more local impact send it to their VA address rather than their DC address.

If you can't figure out where to mail it, email Osmosis at : and we'll either
a) find it for you
b) if you want to drop it off at Trademark Tattoo I can mail it for you!
or c)drop by Trademark Tattoo and I will have copies there to sign and mail out.

Thanks for your help!

Awareness+fundraising benefit 4 Darfur Nov. 12th!!

So I am so pleased to announce the beginning plans to have an awareness and fundraising benefit at the Virginia Holocaust Museum this coming November 12th! There will be an hour long screening of the documentary Darfur Diaries, as well as a small panel of speakers, including one of the film makers from the documentary! This event is intended to be educational and humanitarian. I plan on having information booths available for relevant groups to Darfur, and will update info. as it solidifies! Keep posted!

video game for Darfur?

What? Yep! mtvU started a competition among students to find ways of raising awareness for Darfur and this one is the winner:
Darfur Is Dying
It features several interactive games where you can play as a Darfurian trying to do various things like get to a distant well without being caught, or trying to navigate and keep a village up and running....
