David and Paula Bloomer, The Foundation for the Global Library of Women’s Medicine, 32 Meadowbank, London NW3 3AY, U.K.
Dear David and Paula:
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 efforts to support women’s health by founding your free online library, making available the best current medical information to physicians and other health practitioners in less-resourced regions of the world. The Global Library of Women’s Medicine is of particular benefit in the critical area of maternal health in areas where medical staff resources are few.
We encourage you to continue to recruit more of your colleagues from medicine and medical publishing to participate in the GLOWM and related projects. We hope your information-sharing model will be widely copied.
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 email@example.com or by regular mail, address below. We would love to hear from you!
