Welcome to The Radiant Peace Place
A Vision for the Present and Future
Inspiring, encouraging and promoting Radiant Peace
The Radiant Peace Foundation International, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit founded in 1986 based in St. Petersburg, Florida and is not political, religious or activist. Our mission is to inspire, encourage and promote Radiant Peace® and to serve as a centerpoint for Radiant Peace education worldwide. Every program of The Radiant Peace Foundation International gives people the opportunity to expand upon their innate capacity to recognize and celebrate the Radiant Peace that lies within all our hearts.
Radiant Peace Programs at the Grassroots Level
Each and every Radiant Peace program has developed with the financial support of donors and the dedication of volunteers at the grassroots level. The Radiant Peace Foundation International is not political, religious or activist.
The largest program is The Radiant Peace Education Awards®, in which students in grades 1 through 12 submit essays, art or special projects based on Radiant Peace themes. Since 1990, more than 250,000 children have participated in this program in the United States. Every participant -- students, teachers, and staff -- receives a beautiful iron-on cloth Radiant Peace Patch (see picture on right). In recent years, the program has also expanded into 10 other countries on three continents. After thirteen years of receiving outstanding entries for The Radiant Peace Education Awards, we began displaying some of them; and that one-room exhibit expanded into The International Museum of Radiant Peace. Radiant Peace programs include:
- The International Museum of Radiant Peace
- The Radiant Peace Education Awards®, started in 1990
- Celebrations of The International Day of Radiant Peace held worldwide since 1999
- Radiant Peace caretaking of animals and all living things on Earth
- Protection of special natural sites dedicated to Radiant Peace worldwide
- Recognition of outstanding Radiant Peacemakers
- Radiant Peace walks and events in many countries
- Flying the Radiant Peace banner in homes, schools and businesses on six continents
