A partnership with One Million Bones and Students Rebuild, a collaborative initiative of the Bezos Family Foundation, One in a Million invited visitors to stand against humanitarian crises by making symbolic bones from clay and papier-mâché in the [storefront] bone-making workshop.
Finished bones were displayed to resemble the way they would appear on the National Mall.
Fifteen hundred bones from the Seattle workshop joined thousands more from Washington State in a visual petition totaling over one million handmade bones that covered the National Mall in Washington, DC, in June 2013. With participation from every state in the U.S. and thirty-one countries total, each handmade bone generated $1 for CARE, a humanitarian organization fighting global poverty in places such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Somalia.
