A weekend of paintball and celebrities!
Celebrities battling it out for glory, the rest of us participating in person or online, attempting to break a world record for largest paintball battle, food/drinks/festivities, and best of all it benefits children in need all over the world.
The first Annual Peace Fund Games is the brain-child of Adrian Paul, during a conversation with actor Luke Goss, on the weekly radio show, Peace Fund Radio. Several months later, when actor Cas Anvar came on the same show, the games began to take shape. It has been the intent of the Peace Fund(Protect, Educate, Aid, Children. Everywhere), to collaborate with various charities to support them logistically and financially, while partnering on initiatives to help children around the world. Now the Peace Fund Games has furthered that idea, with celebrities raising awareness and funds for the causes they support.
Music That Pays CD now available!
We’re excited to introduce the first new item in our merchandise line. The Peace Fund has teamed up with Music That Pays to offer a compilation album of music by up and coming artists chosen by us for this first CD. All proceeds will benefit The Peace Fund and our programs that are making a difference every day in the lives of less fortunate children. The CD was debuted at the California State Fair where we captured a few photos from our initial sales. The album is currently available for shipping and we plan to have both the album and individual tracks available for download in the near future. Click here to order.
PEACE FUND RADIO | August 20, 2014
More than 62 million children under the age of 15 are affected by hearing loss, but only one out of every 40 people in the developing world who need a hearing aid have access to one. Adrian Paul and Ethan Dettenmaier bring you the statistics about the number of children who deal with total or partial hearing loss and discuss the associated developmental issues, social problems, and academic difficulties these kids must overcome. And though many children are born with hearing loss, many more cases occur from prolonged exposure to noisy toys and electronic devices. Find out how to keep your kids' ears safe, and learn what organizations such as The Starkey Hearing Foundation and The Global Foundation For Children With Hearing Loss are doing to help. Our Hero of the Week, Anthony Smith, didn't want to wear his hearing aid at age 4 because his superhero idols didn't wear them. So when his mother, Christina D'Allesandro, contacted Marvel Comics to see if they had ever featured a hero with hearing loss, Marvel responded by making Anthony a superhero called "Blue Ear" and allowing him not only to meet Iron Man but also to become him. Anthony's adventures have created great opportunities for education, awareness, and acceptance for children with hearing loss thanks to posters and other materials Marvel and hearing aid manufacturer Phonak have provided to doctors' offices and schools around the country. Also, get the latest updates on The Peace Fund Games and Combat Radio's Christmas Breakfast For Homeless Children!
And when you apply for and use your new PEACE Fund Visa Platinum Rewards Card, THE BANK WILL DONATE $50 and a percentage of all your future purchases will go to The PEACE Fund.

Victoria Speechley's family is honoring her commitment to The Peace Fund by setting up a special Fund inside the Peace Fund called Victoria's Legacy Fund. They have asked that their initial donation be used to fund the first two years of Peace Fund Radio, an initiative that Victoria was passionate about and devoted a great deal of her time. Peace will use any monies donated on projects that would bring a smile to Victoria's face.
When making a donation to The Peace Fund, please specify that the donation is to be held against Victoria's Legacy Fund so correct allocations and attributions can be made.
