Planting Peace

On this historic day, when the American Supreme Court struck down both Prop 8 and DOMA, I felt it was a good time to post about the organization: Planting Peace.

This is a rainbow blog, so first and foremost I must show you their AMAZING rainbow-painted house :)


They are a Non-Profit Organization specializing in de-worming, orphanages, rain forest conservation, tree planting, equality, & peace. Their rainbow-hued Equality House is located in Topeka, KS - directly across the street from the hateful Westboro Baptist Church:

"For too long, the Westboro Baptist Church has been targeting the LGBTQ community with messages of hate and discrimination. Often, protesting American soldiers’ funerals and organizations that support equality. This faction preaches extremism in our communities and directly targets our youth. To combat their messages of hate and to support equality and anti-bullying initiatives in schools and in our community, Planting Peace has established the Equality House in Topeka, KS. 

Located directly across from the Westboro Baptist Church, the House is a symbol of equality, peace, and positive change. The house, which is painted the colors of the Pride flag, will serve as the resource center for all Planting Peace equality and anti-bullying initiatives and will stand as a visual reminder of our commitment, as global citizens, to equality for all."

Recently, a 5 year old erected a lemonade stand in their front yard and raised over $20,000 for charity! They also held a lesbian wedding on their front lawn. They are a positive force for peace and love in their community (and around the world!) and I am very proud of the work they are doing :)

Check them out on Facebook. And Happy Equality Day! :)

I have some literature that you should take the time to read. This will really open your eyes as to who the real bullies are. Please read this all the way through. Pay close attention to the quotes.
