Mattie Stepanek — Child Poet and Peacemaker "I choose to live until death, not spend the time dying until death occurs." Mattie Stepanek accrued some mighty endorsements in his short life. The child poet and peace advocate suffered from a rare neuromuscular condition, dysautonomic mitochondrial myopathy, which claimed his life in 2004 when he was only 13 years old.
On Sept. 21, 2012, on the feast of St. Matthew and the International Day of Peace, the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Guild was officially launched, with the objective of investigating Mattie's life and virtues for the possible cause of canonization.
In 2018, the Guild launched a new website http://www.mattieonline.com/?
The Worldwide Peace Bell Foundation: In 1992, Doug and Martha were invited to perform with their bells at the United Nations, NY on the Equinox, for the Japanese Peace Bell Ceremony. This was the genesis of the non-profit Foundation which celebrates its 10th Anniversary with the Planting/Dedication of 53 Peace Poles and a 5th Grade Peace Essay Contests. Join with us and the Rotary so that together we may help humanity move from the "Love of Power to the Power of LOVE!"
The Worldwide Peace Bell Foundation, is a 501c3 not for profit begun in 2009.
