I just saw this on the news and wished I knew about till late tonight. I would have so participated. It's a project that travels from city to city that empowers humanity to take a stand for equality and the rights of all people. They place a temp tattoo on your hand then take your picture then e-mail it to you so you can post in anywhere you want and tell people want it means.
Here is the website
Thanks for the downvote! Why, since I asked some LEGITIMATE questions?! HOW does taking a picture of a stamped hand, make everyone EQUAL?! I really don't understand! And in giving me a downvote, it's clear that you don't know either! "Feel good" projects never amount to much!
In 1986, we had the "Hands Across America" project, where people from New York to California were to link hands, making a CONTINUOUS human chain across the country to support helping the impoverished, homeless and hungry! Nobel idea? Yes! HOWEVER, less than $20 million was raised, falling short of the $50 million goal. The event failed because costs exceeded $17 million and the majority of the 5 million+ participants didn't pay the $10 fee!

What a nice idea to educate & bring attention to an important issue that unfortunately is still on ongoing problem. It may not change everyone's attitude, b/c let's face it, some people are hard-headed & set in their ways. But it brings attention to the problem, and will hopefully start a healthy dialogue toward changing things for the better.

The way it helps is by sending a positive message which does tend to get people more involved in learning about the issues and working together to solve them. This may not directly solve the problem, but it does help raise awareness--like a ribbon to support a favorite cause. The ribbon itself doesn't help anyone directly. The pink ribbon doesn't cure breast cancer, the puzzle ribbon doesn't prevent autism, but they do show support and open opportunities to talk about those issues and why they're important to the wearer. My CM avatar, for another example, doesn't cure autism, but it has caused other moms to pm me and ask me questions about autism and my daughter--it has opened the door to me being able to give support and sometimes advice to moms whose children are being evaluated or have just recently been diagnosed.
