Send a message of peace with an international Peace Card
Each card measures 5½ x 4¼”—and inside is the word PEACE in multiple languages and scripts.
Burkina Faso: Two men approach each other on bicycles. They have other places to go but still find time to stop and shake hands, not once, but nearly a dozen times as they inquire about the health and happiness of each other’s family.
Handshaking is more than a superficial greeting in Burkina Faso. It reflects the deep cultural belief that strong bonds of friendship and family take precedence over all else.

Features the message by Rigoberta Menchu Tum: “Peace is not a little white dove. It is you and me.”
