This is where the Campaign staff will meet with Arab/English cultural leaders, activists, and organizers to create new ways of connecting our two fractured worlds. This level of contribution not only helps the Campaign get off the ground, it will fly Haneen to the US for the first time where she can tour with the Understanding Campaign. Your flight (within the contiguous United States) and one night lodging is included. You will attend the summit where some of the staff, campaigners, and artists are meeting for the first time. This will happen sometime in 2011. And you get all of the incentives listed above (minus the original art).
