Come and join People Tree at the Big IF London event on Saturday 8 June to make a massive noise and demand an end to world hunger.
This Saturday People Tree will come together with thousands of people in Hyde Park to plant a breath-taking field of 2 million flower petals to represent the 2 million children’s lives lost each year to hunger.
There’s enough food for everyone, yet every day 1 in 8 people go hungry. This is unfair, unjust and totally preventable. On the same day of the G8 international Hunger Summit in London, come and be part of a brilliant day of action: inspiring speakers, stories, craft activities and live music to show world leaders that we expect action on hunger at the G8. IF enough people come together to call on the G8, we can help tackle the causes of hunger and save millions of lives.
Come and join us in the Campaign Zone from 10:30 am where a range of fun activities are on offer. At our stall in the Enterprise Organisations tent you can buy a cute summer dress from our Aimee collection and support Fair Trade Cotton at Fair Prices. Most of the stalls on the day will be cash only, so remember to bring your pennies as cards won’t be accepted. The first 50 people to arrive at our stall and use the code word “Blah Blah Blah” will receive our canvas Blah Blah Blah bag as a free gift – only 50 to give away!
You’ll also have the chance to win a Fair Trade wardrobe worth £250! Entry to the completion is FREE – just come and visit our stall or look out for the People Tree models carrying campaign placards in and around the rally zone.
You can also come and get creative with us by making your own spinning flower to add to the huge multi-coloured display. Or you can make your own at home and bring it along – find out how here, by going to page 9 and 10 of this IF event flyer.
