I'd like to start this year with an unusual post, but I hope you'll still like it!
I don't have a postcard from Madagascar yet, but I recently got something else that comes from there. This tiny lemur is a toy made by children on the island and sold by a "Children of Madagascar - Ankizy Gasy" Foundation to support building new schools on Madagascar. Some time ago they had a small slideshow and a lecture here in my city, about Madagascar, life on the island and the foundation's work, and it was truly inspiring.
If you would like to read more about the foundation and their work on the island, or maybe you would like to help too or even volunteer in Madagascar, visit Ankizy Gasy Foundation website.
Have a Happy New Year everyone!
