"Thank you Audrey Hepburn, we love you"

0 Comments 28 February 2007

Last night I dreamed that I met Audrey Hepburn in a beautiful garden full of exotic flowers, and we talked about the flowers and saving money for the children. Today I wake up to find that the first of 15 planned schools for the City of Joy Aid has opened! If you remember from earlier news posts, the money from the Christie’s auction of Audrey’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress raised enough money to build 15 schools for children in India who would otherwise never be schooled at all. The first school opened today in Keoradanga with City of Joy Aid founder Dominique Lapierre present, and will hold about 200 students. It was apparently a very sweet opening, with children singing a welcome song and Dominique offering a red rose to a picture of Audrey sporting the dress (below). You can read more about the school’s opening here, and more about the Lapierre’s school plans here. Long-term plans for the City of Joy Aid can be found here.


Audrey must be so proud.
