The Canadian Landmine Foundation (CLF) and the United Nations Association of the United States of America (UNA-USA) sponsored a worldwide charity event called the Night of 1000 Dinners (N1KD). This unique event, which benefited the Adopt-A-Minefield® Campaign, among other organizations, spanned over 30 countries, including the United States, Lebanon, Croatia, Greece, Canada, Norway, Pakistan and Mozambique. People invited friends and family to their homes or hosted events through their businesses, schools or religious organizations. Guests were asked to make contributions to the landmine cause, while hosts were encouraged to prepare a meal native to one of the more than 70 landmine-affected countries in the world. The event was designed not only to raise money for the cause, but also to raise awareness among the general public about the worldwide threat that landmines pose.
