#24 - Voskresensky Gate
When I started this project, the main goal was to get people aware of malaria and the issue in Africa. I just came up with it one night in hopes that people would take interest.
Even more touching are the heartfelt wishes I'm receiving for my birthday; people really are sincere and thoughtful in what they write. For the most part, these wishes and cards are coming from total strangers. People who have simply agreed to send a card, because of the challenge.
I feel better knowing the world is full of caring people, who do what they can to help.
The media, the tv, and newspapers, share stories that deplete your hope and faith in the world. If only they took a moment to see the truth, that there are good people everywhere. All it takes is for us to open our eyes.
Needless to say, I'm overwhelmed. The cards keep pouring in and I never thought the idea would be as successful as it is. Thanks to all of you for making this birthday and cause extra special :)
And in case you're wondering, this is the Voskresensky Gate in Russia; thank you Irina.
