Michael Oher gets Peace-tagged!!!

Okay, how's this for cool---on Wednesday, Patti and I got to meet the gifted, charming, and totally humble Michael Oher! In addition to being an NFL Football star, Michael's life inspired a little movie called "The Blind Side".
Michael was presented with a PeaceTag prior to him sharing his moving personal story to a packed room of 1200 supporters of Treehouse. Treehouse is an AMAZING organization devoted to giving foster kids a childhood and a future.
PeaceTags salutes people like Michael Oher and our friends at Treehouse who are creating more peace in the world through helping kids find their way to a better life!
How will you make tomorrow more peaceful than today?

PeaceTags at the Sundance Film Festival!

PeaceTags held a trunk show at OC Tanner Jewelers in Park City, Utah January 21st and 22nd.. Thank you to Curtis, Robyn and their FABULOUS crew for making us feel so welcome! OC Tanner Jewelers was a corporate sponsor of the Sundance Film festival and PeaceTags were featured at one of their fun in-store events.
Lots of the Seattle PeaceTags Posse were in attendance, including Julie, Patti, Maura, Vanessa and the fabulous Mr. JJ McKay!
Among the highlights of the trip, we got to see an AMAZING documentary called "Restrepo" which won the Sundance grand jury prize. The film chronicles the deployment of a platoon of US soldiers in one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan. Watch this film and for 90 minutes you will know what it's like to be in a war zone.
This film reminds us why we are doing what we do at PeaceTags. Our mission is to help veterans and spread peace one tag at at a time.
I hope more uber talented filmmakers will take on subjects like PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (Traumatic brain injury). We need to really see the consequences...
Now go out and make it a peaceful day!!!!
