Artist Inspiration: Tec Petaja

i think i’m in love

more than lovely words,

photography by Tec Petaja

GYB

(Got Your Back)

is an organization to

RESTORE PURPOSE

GIVE HOPE

and

SHOW LOVE

by providing school uniforms to

children in poor places who

wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend.

All I had to do to provide

one uniform so a child may attend school

was buy a shirt.

That’s it.

this is the one i chose – love it

Shirt for shirt, they’re changing lives.

It may be a small gesture,

but suddenly we can be part of

a conspiracy of love.

How lovely is that?

Peace to you right where you are.

    Aww, Michele, you have officially stolen my heart! I'm originally from Kenya (spent my first two decades there) and I've seen that heartbreaking poverty… it's so wonderful to know people who make a difference in their own little way.

    I hope your macarons turned out well and you had a lovely little reunion with your hubby 🙂

    How wonderful and eye opening isn't it when such a small gesture can make such a huge impact!?!

    Thank you for the link.

    this shirt for shirt concept is so brilliant, and the photography associated with GYB is compelling. i want to visit these school children!
