Exactly one year ago, I wrote the first words here on Happy Interior Blog. It's been an incredible year, my dears! A year full of happiness, colourful ideas, home visits, design shows, guest posts. My idea was to create a blog with the mission of bringing happiness to our homes and our daily lives. I hope I've succeeded at least a bit and made you all a tad happier when visiting here.
However, today I've decided not to celebrate my blog with balloons or happy cushions. I would like to set a little reminder: as much as I try here, our big world is still not an entirely happy place. At least not for everyone. There are many less fortunate people who have bigger worries than decorating their homes. Sometimes it's the plain worry of having a home at all.
So I've decided to do my little bit here and raise the awareness for those regions and people who lack a decent home, children who have no proper schools, no hospitals or other necessary infrastructures for a dignified life.
I've done a little research and found a non-profit organization called 'Building Trust International'. They are essentially a charity that offers design assistance to communities and individuals in need. I've contacted them and learned about their current projects that are partly funded through donations, such as the project 'Moving Schools', a community project at the Thai/Burmese border.
So for the first bloggerversary of Happy Interior Blog I've decided to make a little 'community donation project' here. And these are the simple rules: I will start with a unpretentious minimum donation of 20 Euros. And then I need YOUR help: Leave a comment under this blog post to support the 'Building Trust International' projects until coming Sunday, October 28th. Each comment will equal 1 EURO of extra donation to the 20 Euros. At the end I will count all your comments and donate the total sum in Euros. My treat!
So, all you have to do is leave one comment and together we will contribute - and let's be pretentious now - to a happier world!
Thank you my friends for one year of support & happiness!
