Instead of wasting $4 trillion fighting the Iraq War, we could have ended world hunger for three decades.

Calling For Creative Ways To Show What All This Military Spending Could Buy Instead

imageTo date, our most shared image ever!

CODEPINK and National Priorities Project have teamed up to sponsor a contest for the Bring Our War $$ Home campaign!

Contestants are invited to use their creativity to design a shareable image that shows what isn’t being funded while the U.S. continues to spends $600+ billion a year — year after year — on the Pentagon budget. 

National Priorities is the perfect partner for the contest because of their user-friendly federal budget tools. These tools can tell how much your town, city, state or congressional district actually paid in taxes for military spending — and how many Head Start slots or college scholarships or solar panel equipped homes that could have funded instead. 

Prizes include thousands of eyeballs on your winning image at both organizations’ high traffic websites and on Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook and Pinterest, plus cash and CODEPINK swag. (Full contest rules and details here.)

The contest will be judged by activists all over the country with the winners announced in time for Global Day of Action Against Military Spending (GDAMS) April 14 and federal income tax day April 15.

Here are more awesome images from around the interwebs that I’ve collected to help get your creative juices flowing:
