Dear Minister:

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 the legislation you introduced and your government has passed into the Law of Productive, Communal and Agricultural Revolution. Ensuring food security for working people amid rising global prices, providing support for small-scale agriculture, re-taking national control of seed stocks, while protecting the environment from agricultural damage — these are admirable goals. Combined with Bolivia’s remarkable Act of the Rights of Mother Earth, your country is a model of eco-system based development.

We encourage you to maintain the open and transparent bureaucracies necessary to support these remarkable new laws.

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 Should you chose to respond to us, you may do so directly on the website, by email at or by regular mail, address below. We would love to hear from you!

sincerely yours,

Marlene Yuzak and Allan Casey
