Machinto

Another great Fire & Ice event today from Stace and the gang at Elluminate. This time the event focus is on kids affected by war around the world. As described, "The Machinto project is based on a Japanese picture book about a little girl who is killed in the Hiroshima bomb in 1945. The girl comes back to life as a dove who spreads peace and hope to children in the world who are affected by war. Over the past several months, students from various countries have leveraged the internet to communicate their feelings and thoughts about this topic by engaging in online forums, sharing photographs and artwork, and developing their own picture book about peace and friendship. As a token of friendship, Machinto classes will distribute these books to children who live in war-affected areas including Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan". The books and poems can be seen on the project website at www.machinto.org.
