Adopt-A-Minefield® and Landmine Survivors Network have joined forces to create That Landmine Thing, a student campaign involving thousands of young people from across North America interested in mine action. That Landmine Thing is an international fundraising campaign created for and by students to help clear minefields, assist survivors and raise awareness about the landmine problem. Since its inception, the campaign has been incredibly successful, involving nearly 1,000 schools and raising over $180,000—clearing four minefields in Cambodia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, as well as providing survivors with appropriate medical care and the means to establish a livelihood.
