What a beautiful experience. What an honor. What a blessing to be making a contribution. I feel newly connected, filled with joy and hope, also for my kids. Thank you! Michaelle

I just shared this at work and people are so excited it’s like they’ve been thirsting for this and no one ever mentioned. Thrilled! Boris

I used stories in my English for Adults class. Normally, they just want to flirt, but today, everybody was super focussed on explaining their hero to their neighbours. Excellent! Grzegor

The posters were a smash hit with the students. You should have been there! The principal, teachers, everybody agrees it’s been the best activity of the school fest. Students are inspired and ask how they can get involved. You watch us! Anahita
