December 2, 2005


The holidays and a new year are approaching, so let us join together in action and intention in the spirit of peace, compassion and generosity. Whether you get together with your community and local CODEPINK to say no to war toys, or shop our online CODEPINK store for fabulous gift giving ideas, please give the gift of peace this season… and do it in pink!

Join us in action… Every holiday season, manufacturers prey on our children with pro-war propaganda disguised as innocent toys. Don't let your child be a victim of G.I. Joe! As you're out buying holiday gifts, make a point this year to show our children that war is not game. Set an example for the youth in your life and use the opportunity to teach them non-violence. Check out the CODEPINK No War Toys webpage for ideas and actions you can take to Say No to War Toys! You can also find other fun holiday ideas, like our outrageous, alternative holiday carols, Raging Granny-style!

Or join us in spirit, and the spirit of giving… Be peaceful and pink this holiday season, and throughout 2006! This year we are offering a variety of CODEPINK holiday packages, T-shirts, buttons, books, stickers, DVDs (including our newest DVD exposing the tragedy of Fallujah), and much more through our online store. All of our t-shirt products are 100% sweatshop free, and many of our other products are made by small women-owned businesses and cooperatives.

And don't forget to do your other online holiday shopping through You can shop over 650 stores, while being able to give a little to CODEPINK! When you are completing your igive purchase, select CODEPINK as your organization of choice, and a percentage of your purchase will benefit our work to end the war in Iraq and create a more peaceful world.

Peace and love in the new year,
Dana, Emily, Farida, Gael, Jen, Jodie, Medea, Nancy, Rae, Sam & Tiffany

P.S. HEADS UP: On Tuesday, December 6th, the day Congress reconvenes after the holiday break, CODEPINK will be calling for a National Call-In Day to End the War and Bring the Troops Home. Along with United for Peace and Justice, Win Without War and other activists groups, CODEPINK will be asking you to call your Senators and Representative in an effort to flood their offices with a strong message that they must act now to bring an end to the war and bring the troops home. Stay tuned for details coming in the next alert.
