The Darfur Wall


The Darfur Wall

The Darfur Wall is a non-profit web site that raises awareness of the Darfur conflict and supports Darfur-relief organizations. It displays a list of numbers from 1 to 400,000, each representing one person killed in Darfur. Visitors can change the color of a number from gray to white by donating one dollar or more.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from The Darfur Wall benefit four non-profit organizations:
* [http://doctorswithoutborders.org Doctors Without Borders]
* [http://savethechildren.org Save the Children]
* [http://sudanreeves.org Sudan Aid Fund / Eric Reeves]
* [http://savedarfur.org Save Darfur Coalition]

The Darfur Wall received its first donation on November 15, 2006. In the next month the project raised more than $10,000 (U.S.). As of March 27, 2007, more than 10% of the wall has been lit, representing donations of over $40,000.
