Dear Mr. Ghonim:

It is our very great pleasure to present you with the original artwork herewith enclosed, a gift of The Blossom Project.

The purpose of the Blossom Project is to inspire people to do their best to serve the needs of global community, as defined by the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations. The enclosed watercolour painting is one of 19 we are sending out as gifts to individuals or groups able to bring about positive change in the world.

Each painting is a token of acknowledgement for work already done. Each is a gesture of encouragement for work that may yet be undertaken in the future.

Specifically, we wish to acknowledge your peaceful leadership in the Arab Spring revolution in Egypt despite great personal risk. In particular your use of social media to achieve democratic goals has inspired and empowered a new generation of activists worldwide.

We encourage you to continue the work of building a new society and a new economy in Egypt.

The enclosures provide background on The Blossom Project, the paintings, the recipients, the Millennium Development Goals, and ourselves.

All the information, including a copy of this letter, may be viewed online at www.theblossomproject.org. Should you chose to respond to us, you may do so directly on the website, by email at sunnymarlene@sasktel.net or by regular mail, address below. We would love to hear from you!

sincerely yours,

Marlene Yuzak and Allan Casey
