About the John Denver Peace Cloth
Welcome to the official web site for the John Denver Peace Cloth. The John Denver Peace Cloth is a creative work of art that is the culmination of work from people around the world - pieces of cloth sewn together in panels to convey the hopes and prayers of individuals who believe that by coming together, we can make a difference.
The John Denver Memorial Peace Cloth made it's debut in September 2000, at the United Nations in a ceremony for Millennium Peace Day. Ron Deutschendorf, John Denver's brother, joined us that day, supporting us in our efforts, and he gave us his blessing on the John Denver Peace Cloth project when he said "you need to keep this going" and promised his support.
True to his word, over the coming months, Ron worked with us to get the permissions we needed to use John's name, pictures and words in the Peace Cloth. Ron, his family, Windstar and others worked with the newly formed board of the Peace Cloth, giving us an opportunity to be a true part of working toward the vision that we all share.
We hope you enjoy visiting our site and will keep coming back to see new pages and content as they become available. It is a work in progress, so if you don't see what you are looking for, please email us with any questions you have. Thank you for your continued support of the John Denver Peace Cloth.

“Friend, We Will Remember You”
Our friend and Peace Cloth board member Lana Zinkon passed over on Thursday October 28th 2010, after a lengthy and courageous battle with pulmonary hypertension. Lana is forever part of the Peace Cloth. She sewed many of the panels that made up the original footage so many years ago. We keep this tribute up in memory of our dear friend, who is always in our hearts.
