Our Heros


Instead of having tables that are organized by numbers, we wanted to highlight some of our heros - and include a bit of a popular education format for the kissing game. We know that people would want us to kiss, so we collected vintage noise makers and instruments. So, if someone wanted to see us smooch, they had to make some noise with the toy on their table and answer a skill-testing question about the Hero that was featured on their table.

So, one of the hardest part was picking just 13 people, but we managed. We are amazed by their work in the nonviolence field, animal rights, civil rights, environmentalism, and overall commitment to living their lives as best they can. Some are artists (poets/authors), and some are inspiring folk who became heros by a simple decision to challenge the status quo. After choosing them, we colour-photocopied Mexican Bingo cards unto paper and put the names of our heros on the other. Then, when it was time to see where people were sitting, we put up each table and community hero up on the wall, encircled by the fabric flags i made. It was like our friends and family were having dinner with these people!

Here are our heros:

American Indian Movement (AIM)
Edna St. Vincent Millay
Fannie Lou Hamer
Farm Sanctuary
Food Share
James Baldwin
Jane Addams
Ken Saro-Wiwa
Kilus Foundation
Mary Wollstonecraft
Paulo Freire
People First
Vandana Shiva

Hello!
You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no need to invest much at first.
You may begin to get income with a sum that usually is spent

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing
the structure of your site? Its very well written;
I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
