The Darfur Wall

Posted on December 18, 2006 Under Life

The Darfur Wall project is taking an interesting approach at visualizing the devastating data around the mass genocide in Darfur. The site shows 400,000 numbers (from 1 to 400,000), one for each person killed in Darfur– donate one dollar or more to turn a number from dark gray to brilliant light and honor one lost life. At that time of writing this, 10343 numbers have been lit, or 2.59%– What’s probably more remarkable is that this was from only 716 donations, making the average donation $15. 100% of all proceeds go to four different independent Darfur relief organizations– what are you waiting for?
