Hello,

My name is Bluebelle Wednesday Carroll, I am 13 years old and I love words. 

Last September (the 27th, to be exact) I began a project called Words not Wars because I wanted to make a difference.

As a child I cannot stand up and go to the leaders of the world telling them to stop fighting, but I can make a change. I can do good. That is why I began Words not Wars, a project devoted to giving children in refugee camps hope through the power of words. I do this by setting up pen pals between children in London schools and those in refugee camps around the world.

I believe there is something very special about recieving a letter. my friend Laurie and I used to write to each other a lot and that sense of excitment I got whenever there was a letter with my name on it is something I think every child should be able to experience. 

So far I have set up 36 pairs, (between Somalian refugees in a camp in Kenya and those in my year at school) who have already begun to write to one another, but sadly the letter postage has a rather high fee and to continue the project and hopefully end up touching more lives I need donations for the postage fees as well as money for little personal gifts to make these children in the refugee camps lives a little more special. I have made a website for the project if you want to look into it further or see any pictures from the camp, which is http://bubblewednesday.wix.com/words-not-wars Everone is very keen to expand and develop the project, so anything you can give will really make a huge difference.

Thank you very much

Bluebelle Wednesday Carroll
