This one's officially for the kids, but it's really about the whole world, and the suffering of people in other nations. As part of its ongoing Monthly Creative Literacy program in collaboration with the Denver Public Library, RedLine will host the second of two One Million Bones art events in Denver this afternoon.

The goal of the One Million Bones Project is to fill every inch of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. with student-made, papier-mâché bones this coming June to raise awareness of survivors of atrocities and conflicts in countries like Congo, Sudan, Burma and Somalia. The Bezos Foundation will contribute $1 for each bone sent in by April 28, up to a total of $500,000; the donations will aid CARE services and programs in those regions. The following video explains the project.

Be a part of something bigger: Bring yourself and your elementary school-aged children to make some bones at RedLine from 4 to 5:30 p.m. tonight.
