Make a difference - for peace, chess and children - with Chess Queen Kosteniuk

Chess blog for latest chess news and chess trivia (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hi everyone,

Hello everyone!

As Champion for Peace, after inaugurating the “Ajedrez por la Paz” program in Puerto Tejada, Colombia (see photos) last April, Chess Queen Alexandra Kosteniuk remains committed to Peace and is now the patron of a joint project run by the National Chess Federations in Israel and Palestine, with FIDE, called “Chess for Leadership and Creativity“, supported by the NGOs “Jerusalem Suburbs Community Center” and “Care Palestine.” The organization “Peace & Sport", who do so much to make life better for so many kids in the world, is calling for donations for this project. You want to help? Just go to Chess Queen's post at and you can make a donation.

    Wow. I had no clue that Kosteniuk even supported such efforts. Commendable. It is heartening to know that people like you understand their responsibility. Most celebrities don’t really care what is happening in the world beyond themselves. The point is that once you are a public figure you must realise that speaking up for causes can make a difference. My congratulations. I wish you best in all your endeavours.
