“I feel so very blessed to have read Great Peacemakers. Yes, blessed indeed." – Betty Williams, President and founder, World Centers of Compassion for Children International and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
“Powerful, well-researched and, above all, timely, Great Peacemakers should be required reading for the youth of the world. Classrooms are flooded with history textbooks that celebrate military heroes. It is long past time that our children learn from books that celebrate peace."—~ Dr. Oscar Arias President of Costa Rica and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize
Amazon Smile Program
If you shop online at Amazon, please go through AmazonSmile, their charitable rewards program to give 0.5% of all eligible purchases to CPS. It's quick and easy. All you have to do is:
- Go to smile.amazon.com. Set this as a bookmark and always enter Amazon through this address. This is important, as purchases made through the regular Amazon site are not calculated toward the charity disbursements.
- The first time that you go to the site, you will be asked to fill in the organization that you want to benefit from your purchases. Type in the Center for Partnership Studies (it should also appear in the dropdown selections).
- After that, just do your ordering as you normally do.
We are most grateful, and most encouraged to count you among our Caring friends.
