I soo sooo love these pictures. I don't know who these kids are, but the glee on their faces and the purity of it all, is just mesmerizing.
These pictures were taken by my sister G when she was in Zhangjiachun, China doing some social work. It was during the run-up to the Beijing Games, and on behalf of her company, G went and distributed some stationery packs and sports equipment like basketballs, badminton rackets and table tennis bats to a village school. THIS was the reception..
I did this layout as a reminder to my girls of how fortunate they are, and to never take simple comforts for granted.
"My dear girls, look at how happy these children are !! We may not know them but I always want you to remember how privileged you are and the simple comforts of life. These children had just received a stationery pack each and some sports equipment for their school and they were so happy."
