plural noun: human rights
a right which is believed to belong to every person.
“a flagrant disregard for basic human rights”
We’re back on the block… And it took us about 6 months…
You know why?
Well, some things in live can’t be controlled…
There are things that can surprise you unexpectedly…
and not always in a kind or pleasant way…
Unpleasant, nerve-wrecking, very stressful and sad,
yes it was… but nothing compared to the thousands
and thousands of refugees-families waiting for a better life.
There is this wonderful initiative of our friends,
TRUE ART OF GIVING,
and they thought it was a good idea
to start their auction today… December 10th
HUMAN RIGHTS DAY…
to help the refugees who are stucked,
sometimes already for years, on an island.
The island Lesbos in Greece.
We happen to be the lucky ones…
At least lucky in having the basic necessities of life.
We live in a beautiful warm home in a safe area,
and we have clothes to wear and enough food to eat
and the kids have the privilege to go to school, five days a week.
Enough toys to play with and we are surrounded by
our dearest friends and families…
Something millions of people can’t say… and without making us feel guilty,
we would just want us all to be grateful of what we ‘do’ have
and help out where we can. Even a little small thing or gesture will help.
So, what can you do? Well…
We would love you to follow this beautiful initiative
TRUE ART OF GIVING
from today on… If you didn’t already…
It is a collective of brands, makers & shops
trying to master the art of giving this holiday season.
They’ve joined hands and are putting together
an auction with all your favourite christmas gifts.
Beautiful gifts from small businesses,
with a big heart for the environment
are available and selected for you.
And the total amount which will be raised,
will be donated 100% (yes yes!)
to BECAUSE WE CARRY
and will reach ‘the families in need’ directly!
This third auction will take place from today on,
Monday 10th until Thursday 13th 23:59 p.m.
Every item will be posted one by one
at TRUE ART OF GIVING‘s Instagram account.
So go check it out… This is the fun part!
And believe us,
it will fulfill all your christmas shopping dreams 😉
And at the same time we learn the ‘TRUE ART OF GIVING!’
The best of both worlds…
Thank you all so so much! Very much appreciated!
