We can't send you the beautiful stone work for which Palestine is famous, or the magnificent architecture, much of it now destroyed. But we can send you other bits and pieces of the rich tapestry that Palestinian culture has produced over the past four millennia. Palestinians love to share.
And you will be sharing, too, in the preservation of the Palestinian presence, society and culture in Palestine. Half of the proceeds from every purchase goes to the nonviolent resistance efforts of the International Solidarity Movement, through its Northern California chapter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with tax exempt status for human rights work.
Rachel Corrie is one of thousands of ISM volunteers resisting Israeli occupation, repression and violation of Palestinian human rights, under the leadership of Palestinian communities with whom they participate. Your Palbox subscriptions help to enable that resistance and the volunteers who go to Palestine to participate in it.
