The aim of We Are The World Blogfest is to shine a little light on any darkness in the world or in ourselves, by sharing uplifting stories. The blogfest seeks to promote positive news. There are many cases of love and light out there, stories that show compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Sharing these stories increases our awareness of hope in our increasingly dark world. This gathering takes place on the last Friday of every month.
Our special lead co-hosts for this month are: Peter Nena, Inderpreet Uppal, Shilpa Garg, Roshan Radhakrishnan, Sylvia McGrath and Belinda Witzenhausen.
Hundreds of prisoners have crocheted a 7 000-square metre blanket in honour of late anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela.
The enormous blanket depicts the face of the former president and is made up of more than 3 000 smaller squares. Revealed at the Zonderwater Prison outside Pretoria, the crocheted artwork is meant to mark the centenary of Mandela’s birth this year.
After the launch, the blankets will be reduced to nearly 4 000 smaller blankets and will be distributed to needy South Africans.
