Adopt-A-Minefield Partners with Abbey Road on the River
Dear Friends of Adopt-A-Minefield,
AAM proudly announces its partnership with Abbey Road on the River, an annual Beatles Tribute Festival. This three-day concert event features some of the best Beatles tribute bands from around the world and will take place August 6-8 in Cleveland, OH. This year, the festival will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Beatles' first American tour, and will take place at the historic Public Auditorium in Cleveland on the same stage that the Beatles performed in 1964. AAM representatives will be present at the festival, raising awareness and funds for mine action, selling “no more land mines” t-shirts, promoting Night of a Thousand Dinners, and raffling a trip for two to our annual Los Angeles Benefit Gala featuring a performance by Paul McCartney. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit www.abbeyroadontheriver.com . All AAM supporters will receive a ticket discount (two tickets for the price of one until 6/30/04).
Successful Culmination of AAM’s Iraq Appeal
AAM’s special Iraq appeal has reached a successful conclusion and we are proud to report that over $100,000 was raised for emergency mine action operations in Iraq. Mine clearance funds will support the Mines Advisory Group’s clearance activities and survivor assistance funds will ensure that Handicap International–Belgium can continue to provide landmine survivors with desperately needed rehabilitation services.
While this special appeal has ended, funds are still urgently needed for mine clearance and survivor assistance in AAM’s permanent program countries. Thank you to all who contributed to the Iraq Appeal!
A Global Agenda
For more than two decades, UNA-USA's annual publication, A Global Agenda, Issues Before the General Assembly of the United Nations, has served as the ultimate authority on the full spectrum of U.N. activity—the Security Council, General Assembly, Specialized Agencies and more. The 2004-2005 edition has a special focus on global health with sections devoted to the Iraq war, terrorism, trade and development, U.N. reform and more.
The 2004-2005 edition will be available in August 2004. Please visitwww.unausa.org/publications/issues53.asp to order your copy.
