I can’t think of anyone who doesn’t like a hug. I know I do!
Well, Misty Shores Chesapeakes blog hugged me with the HUG Award!
Hope Unites Globally (HUG). Wow, what an amazing idea for an award!
You can read about the idea behind the award here: http://ahopefortoday.com/2012/01/14/hope-unites-globally-hug-award-guidelines/
I want to say a big thank you to Misty Shores Chesapeakes for giving Bassa’s Blog this wonderful award.
This is the link to the award post:
The guidelines for this award say that The HUG Award© is not specifically a website or blog award. It can be given to people.
I thought very carefully about how to pass this award on and have decided to give The HUG Award© to my tall person. He worked for not-for-profit organisations for many years and has seen hope in the faces of people who have nothing – hope for an education, hope for health, hope for an end to abuse, hope for a means to feed their children, hope for justice………..tall person says that there is always hope and we should do all we can to realise that hope.
In my One Lovely Blog Award post earlier today I said I would share 7 facts about me. Instead I would like to share 7 pictures taken during the tall person’s career in international development. They show that hope can make a difference.
1. Tall person with orphan children in The Sudan
2. Meeting school children in Mozambique
3. Asking questions in a classroom in Ethiopia
4. Sharing smiles with child workers in Bangladesh
5. Visiting a classroom in Tanzania
6. Meeting a village committee in India
7. Clean, safe water for a village in Northern Ethiopia
Congratulations on this award tall person.
