The art of donating

Life never stops to amaze us, nothing stays the same, we move forward this year daily challenged by the information that makes us see ourselves and give us the possibility to connect us with our heart. These last months have been a time of new questions, of searching for new alternatives to materialize the projects.

In Africa Dream we have moved forward by learning step by step and reinventing ourselves to continue to support our projects in the African continent. Our constant challenge is to get the economics resources since we are lucky to have many hearts, prepared minds, and willing hands for the job. If you are reading this note, you have already joined the tribe and generously you are helping us, once again we thank you since there is no boundary for our gratitude. 

If you are reading this note and you are meeting us for the first time, we tell you how we have transformed Donating in an Art, into a key of new realities, to create possibilities, delivering economic resources to open paths in the life of our African brothers. Donating becomes art because is inspired by a dream of positive impact since those effects transcend. A teacher explained to me a few years ago, a work of art must endure in time so that through the years “its impact” can be seen. And that is what we do in Africa Dream, with the resources that are given we “touch” lives who in time will touch others, and in the future, the art will be remembered by the recipient of actions. We have transcended in our time, making art in the life of others. And your donation will leave a stamp on every work of art, as in art every human life has a variety of colors, shades, melodies, shapes, and it does not connect with the prettier of humans. It thrills and connects us; it allows us to be bigger than ourselves; it transcends us.  

We count on every single one of you to keep making Donating an Art

SOLIDARITY

SOLIDARITY has been a concept used quite often during this last period. It can be felt, read and heard everywhere on television, radio, newspaper, magazines and aloud. And it is in these critical and hard moments, when those social feelings surface, such as taking care and protecting each other, helping us to move on as a group –as one- in turn, I believe appears from a deeply natural instinct: survival.

 

But how is SOLIDARITY, day-to-day, when we are not in a moment of crisis? For me, this concept is always lived, even when we do not notice explicitly. I joined the Africa Dream tribe in 2018 as a General Secretary, and from the moment I left home to get to the office, the gestures of solidarity were always present. I saw acts so simple as the neighbor swiping the street that everyone uses, people holding the door so others could pass, people helping an elder person to get down from the public transportation, people holding the elevator so other people can use it…  even when they are simple and daily acts, it does not mean they are less valuable and beautiful, because it makes you notice that SOLIDARITY is already something natural to us. 

 

During this period, being in our Foundation has allowed me to know this concept in a much closer and special way. Through our volunteers and work team, and through the beautiful and sometimes hard stories that we get to know from our African brothers. I have learned that solidarity is never an option for many in Africa, but it is what forms the backbone of their lives and communities. Here in Chile, thousands of kilometers from the African continent, we can impregnate from that same spirit: to turn SOLIDARITY into an essential pillar of our lives, now more than ever. 

 

SOLIDARITY is and it will continue to be something important to overcome any crisis.
