||IOBFFP – IMAGINE ONE BILLION FACES FOR PEACE
December 8th 2010 marked the thirty-year commemoration of John Lennon's tragic death. To honor his legacy and to further strengthen the presence of our symbol as well as the outreach of our education programs, we launched the largest call for peace and non-violence ever manifested. Iobffp is the overriding campaign theme for all of our activities carrying the Non-Violence message across borders of the global community.
The Iobffp call aims at inspiring people across the globe to sign up for peace and non-violence. Recruitment of this global "Iobffp Crew" will take place through the dedicated website and the Iobffp World Tour as well as via social media networks.
ONE FACE – ONE CENT
Our global partners will donate one cent per signed face on Iobffp.com. Every cent will be allocated for a non-violence education program distributed to, and performed by, schools and sport clubs around the world. Five million young world citizens, teachers and sports coaches have already been educated and with great help from more people and partners we are going for the goal – 100 million! So, if you want to make a change and stand up for peace as well, sign up now.
THE NON-VIOLENCE FOR PEACE TOUR

Ms. Yoko Ono unveiled her interpretation of the iconic symbol, created in her late husbands memory.
“While creating my interpretation of the knotted gun symbol, I thought
back to Imagine and the words “living as one” as both John and I were
devoted to the idea that we can work together to achieve world peace
and eliminate the violence and the suffering in this world. As I have
often said a dream we dream alone is just a dream – a dream we
dream together is reality”
