Thank a UN Peacekeeper

The 100,000 men and women that are part of the UN peacekeeping forces risk their lives to bring peace and stability to 17 of the most dangerous and underdeveloped regions of the world. From Timor-Leste, to Syria, to Kosovo, to Haiti - these men and women are providing the people in these regions with hope that peace can be obtained. They've recently been in the news for telling Sudan to lift the blockade on the Kalma refugee camp in Darfur and for also being threatened to be expelled from Sudan by the Sudanese government (it seems as if Bashir is kicking up his genocidal tactics). 

The other day I found out that you can send a letter to a UN peacekeeper, thanking them for all that they do. Check it out and thank the people working to bring peace to the world.
