I highly encourage all of you to vote for the organization SAFE (savingantiquities.org) in the Chase Community program. SAFE is an organization dedicated to spreading the word about cultural heritage and protecting our cultural treasures, like Kashgar. This past summer SAFE was responsible for heading an Statement of Concern that was sent to UNESCO to protest the destruction of Kashgar. SAFE continues to spread the word and help the world. Now, it is our time to give them help.

SAFE/Saving Antiquities for Everyone http://www.savingantiquities.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving cultural heritage worldwide. Our mission is to raise public awareness about the irreversible damage that results from looting, smuggling and trading illicit antiquities. We promote respect for the laws and treaties that enable nations to protect their cultural property and preserve humanity’s most precious non-renewable resource: the intact evidence of our undiscovered past.
By creating educational programs and media campaigns in partnership with academia and the communications, legal and law enforcement communities, SAFE encourages ethical behavior to stop the trade in illicit antiquities from destroying the history that belongs to us all.
Thank You and Happy Holidays!
