To the development team:
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 acknowledge your development of the eTXT technology which allows inexpensive cellular handsets to access the internet. As you are aware, this technology will have an enormously positive role to play in developing economies where access to the internet is extremely difficult or impossible for many people. EText allows rural women to safely and privately bank online, for families to stay in contact via email and social media, all using a simple, reliable SMS cellular phone.
We encourage you to develop new software, products and business models geared to the needs of consumers in the developing world. Technologies such as eTXT bridge the “digital divide” that continues to leave literate societies on the sidelines of the information age.
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!
