Do You Feel Concerned?

[dA Sponsored Contest]



Lend a hand, give a smile.
From April 17th to October 17th 2008.


Here's my Big 2008 Project : Collect funds for an association.
So this contest is really special.
Read and participate if you are interested. You can participate in different ways.

Humanity needs us.
We all live together but there are differencies.
We were not born in the same place, we were not born with the same abilities, we were not born in the same society, in the same family, We did not all get the same opportunities.
We are not equal. We all need each other, we all need a hand, in different manners, different ways.



In the World...
"An estimated 25.000 people die from an effect of hunger everyday. That's about One person every four seconds."



October 17, World Day to Overcome Extreme Poverty.
On October17, 1987 Joseph Wresinski made a speech in Paris - France. (read this speach at the end of this article).
In 1992 the United Nations recognized this day as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.


This contest is made to fight against poverty.
We can all show our support, we can all lend a hand.
This contest is really special.
The prizes for the winners will be : FUNDS for a NGO (Non-Governementale Association) : CONCERN (You know this association from the White Band).


For this purpose we have created a Paypal Account, all the funds will be given to the Concern association.

You can be either a "solidarity donator" and/or a "prize(s) donator")!
Under you'll have all the infos.
And of course PARTICIPATE!

This is a dA Sponsored contest!

Concern Worldwide is a non-governmental, international, humanitarian organisation dedicated to the reduction of suffering and working towards the ultimate elimination of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries.
What Concern does :
Concern's mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives. Concern works with the poor themselves, and with local and international partners who share the organisation’s vision, to create just and peaceful societies where the poor can exercise their fundamental rights.
One of the best examples of this is Concern’s approach to tackling acute malnutrition through Community-based Therapeutic Care (CTC), in partnership with Valid International.

Concern is a member of Alliance2015.

Concern will be paid directly via their website donation page by me at the begining of november, in case we still get some donations after the contest end.

Joseph Wresinski’s Address - I Bear Witness to You...
October 17, 1987, Human rights Plaza, Paris


You, the millions and millions
of children, women and fathers
who have died from misery and hunger and whose legacy we hold.
It is not your death that I evoke,
today on this Plaza of Human Rights
and Liberties.
I bear witness to your lives.

I bear witness to you, the mothers,
whose children are cast aside in this world,
condemned as they are to sheer misery.

I bear witness to your children,
twisted by the pains of hunger,
no longer able to smile,
yet still yearning to love.

I bear witness to the millions of young people who have no reason to _ believe or even to exist,
and who vainly search for a future in this senseless world.

I bear witness to you, the poor of all times,
still poor today, forever on the road,
fleeing from place to place,
despised and disgraced.

Labourers without a trade,
ever crushed by their toil.
Labourers whose hands, today,
are no longer useful.

Millions of men, women, and children
whose hearts are still pounding strong
to the beat of the struggle,
whose minds rise in revolt
against the unjust fate imposed upon them,
whose courage demands the right
to priceless dignity.

I bear witness to you,
children, women and men,
who do not want to condemn,
but to love, to pray, to work, and to unite,
so that a world of solidarity may be born.
A world, our world, in which all people
would have given the best of themselves before dying.

I bear witness to you,
men, women and children.
Your renown is henceforth engraved
by heart, hand and tool,
in the marble of this Plaza of Human Rights and Liberties.

I bear witness to you, so that humanity
may at last fulfil its true destiny,
refusing forever that misery prevail.

I was awaiting word from the photographer whose photo I used as reference before I could submit my entry for print and to give all proceeds of sale to Concern. But until now, no reply from the photographer. So is it too late I offer this [link] for your auction?
