Banner Ads for Peace

I came across a site (via inkblurt) put up by a 15-year old girl called “Peace Takes Courage” – a collection of basic Flash animations of pictures and text about the Iraq war. The first one, “Broken Promises“, is really moving – and seemed to be to have the same sense of concept and copy that a great TV or print ad would.

People use flash to spread things virally, like the virtual pets so many people post on their Myspace profiles, and it seems as thought many forward-thinking people are expressing their anti-war views online, so how come there aren’t any viral Flash animations/apps like this spreading around?

I suggest someone starts a site called “Banner Ads for Peace” that allow people to link to flash ads expressing social views.

By for now,
