Our Campaign: "Count Me In"

OBON wants to utilise the strength of all our people to build a proud nation where everyone has a strong shared sense of belonging and aspires to play an important role in the life of our nation, the future for our children.

OBON is devoted to galvanising the efforts of people from all backgrounds to rejoice in their pride in Great Britain and wants to build an even stronger Britain. A society built on compassion, tolerance and harmony based on mutual respect.

OBON wants to bring us all together, not to focus on our differences but to celebrate the values we share in common: tolerance, kindness, pride, respect, and a tremendous desire to help others.

OBON represents the positive change our people want to see and recognises that a country is at its best when the bonds between all our people are strong and when the national purpose is clear for the creation of a harmonised society so that we can together make Britain an international model of moral rectitude.

OBON is a Not- For- Profit organisation, free from political or religious affiliations. It is inclusive of all our people regardless of their background.

OBON has already tangibly and powerfully demonstrated that Britain is a nation of passionate people and passionate united races. Our previous campaigns have brought tens of thousands of people together and already mobilised mainstream and government organisations, community groups, celebrities, religious leaders, big businesses, children and politicians to take up its vision and strengthen national identity.

In October 2016 OBON won The Best Not For Profit Campaign for the North of England at a prestigious Awards Ceremony held in Manchester.

“The aims and aspirations of OBON are extremely impressive and timely. I wish the project all the success it so richly deserves and I support its vision of one Nation with all my heart.”

OBON now wishes to build on the success that has been generated by reaching out to all our people.

On Friday 24th of March 2017 OBON will initiate ‘A Call to Action’ from a Civic Event Hosted by The Lord Mayor of Bradford.

This ‘Call to Action’ is intended to reach out to the children of our schools and all the educational establishments for them to celebrate Friday 23rd of June 2017.

This day will give our schools an opportunity to create a celebration as they see appropriate to demonstrate their patriotism and belief in Britain, express their sense of Britishness and gain a sense of belonging.

Its focus will be to create a sense of national unity and pride by strengthening our national identity and forging a sense of togetherness, so that every child can be inspired to love their nation.

It will encourage all our children to be proud and responsible citizens, bolstered by self-esteem and the knowledge of the role they have to play in the country’s future. It will also allow our children to restore, strengthen and promote the Fundamental British Values of tolerance, respect and fair play, a belief in freedom and democracy in accordance with the National Curriculum.

On Friday 23rd of June 2017.

This day will offer an opportunity for the children of our schools to showcase their immense Pride, Love and Passion for this great nation and above all allow our children to play their part and feel valued by their country.

This day will empower an element of confidence in all our children to take this opportunity to wave or fly the flag of our nation in solidarity with each other to demonstrate that they are all one people of this great nation.

To witness the future of our nation taking steps to re appropriate the flag of our nation for the kind, generous and the tolerant people of our country would be recognised as a symbolic gesture on this momentous occasion.

This would be the day to celebrate with vigour and pride to turn every school into Red, White and Blue as an insignia of the unity that is bound together by the thread of oneness nurtured from the love for our country.
