Red Hand Day is rapidly approaching

Red Hand Day – on February 12 – is almost here. Check out the abundance of information online to get involved.

Red Hand Day has the objective of collecting one million ‘red hands’ and presenting these to the UN on 12 February 2009, the sixth Red Hand Day.  For the past 12 months schools, societies, NGO’s,  and individuals have been raising awareness and getting supporters to print red hands on sheets of papers with their names, towns and personal messages.
