They say silence is golden. On November 30th, it really will be for Free the Children, an organization that fights childhood hunger and poverty in countries around the world.
The Vow of Silence is an annual campaign that raises both awareness and funds for the organization. Celebs including Nina Dobrev, Joe Jonas, and Shaq have agreed to go silent for a full 24 hours at the end of the month in support of the cause, which is described as:
“On November 30, 2011, young people will go silent for 24 hours in solidarity with children who are being silenced by poverty and exploitation. For Vow participants, being silent can mean refraining from speaking. It can also mean not using email, Facebook, Twitter or text messaging. It can even mean not using hand gestures, note writing or any communication at all. Participants like you can determine your level of silence based on what you’re comfortable with.”
