"The boy who cries in the photo is Diego Frazao Torquato, who played the violin in the String Orchestra of the Afro Reggae. Afro Reggae is a non-profit organization that gives kids hope and an escape from negative environments. The occasion was the funeral of his social project coordinator, Evandro João Silva, who was murdered in downtown Rio. Diego contracted meningitis at age four, aggravated by pneumonia, and struggled with memory difficulties. He still managed to learn the violin. Diego, born and raised in the slums of Parada de Lucas, dreamed that the violin would take him to see the world. Sadly, shortly after this photo was taken Diego died of leukemia. At Diego’s funeral José Júnior, the coordinator of Afroreggae stated, “I think the legacy of Diego is hope, it is the willingness to change, to transform”.”
Grace is my Real Life Friend, I’ve known her for years, and her brother REALLY NEEDS HELP. To be exact, he needs a bone marrow donor. He has one chance in 50,000, but who knows, maybe you’re that chance.
From the Help Ed Facebook page:
Our dear friend Edmund Fox has been diagnosed with a rare form of Epstein Barr Virus, which has developed into lymphoma and hemophagocytosis. Despite enduring punishing treatments (including chemotherapy), his condition is such that he now requires a bone marrow transplant, and soon. An added complication means there may be a 50% chance he will die within a year.
With the chances of finding a match only 1 in 50,000, we are appealing to everyone to improve these odds by registering as a bone marrow donor. Even though you are unlikely to be a match for Ed, you may help save the life of another fellow human being - just think about what that would mean to them, and their friends and family.
In just 5 minutes you can register with either one of these charities, who will send you a do-it-yourself swab/spit-it, which will be used to analyse your DNA and test for a match - it’s that simple:
Anthony Nolan - http://www.anthonynolan.org/ (ages 16-30)
Delete Blood Cancer - http://www.deletebloodcancer.org.uk/ (ages 18 to 55)
Grace and her family are spreading the word around. I’ve seen tumblr achieve some incredible things, so please, if you can - click on one of the above links and see if you’re eligible to register. (And it probably goes without saying, but please spread this around!)
there is a virus going around it blocks all your browser activities
it appears if you go on a link to a tumblr blog called ‘timetobecreative’
please be careful and don’t click this link!
SPREAD THIS LIKE A WILDFIRE PLEASE I BEG YOU
This is really important, I don’t know what it does to blogs outside of Germany but in our case it led us to a fake police website that urged us to pay money - if this happens to you don’t do it!
Please stay safe out there!

I absolutely LOVE lemonades and fresh fruit. I went to this wonderful cafe, Ms. Dahlia’s Cafe, with one of my best friends in Brooklyn. I had the best cucumber lemonade in life! I immediately went on the hunt to find a recipe. in my search, I came across a great blog, A Beautiful Mess, that has some amazing recipes for lemonades. I had to share. So here you go, enjoy, and I WILL POST MY OWN CREATIONS…after the snow melts.
