Hey peepz, 
I have checked my e-mails this morning, and found this very touching message : 

Dear all,

Last February 7, 2013, I have decided to start a project for my grandmother who was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cervical Cancer. Since my grandmother loves Couchsurfers, I realized that it would be great to invite CSers all over the world to take part in the project. I started the posting campaign throughout the groups in Couchsurfing even though some were annoyed and some flagged my message (and I understand them). After the campaign, I started receiving pictures and emails from CSers all over the world. I hardly slept because of the excitement to open each email, to see creative pictures and to reply to all those who have sent their love for my Mama Cing.

I have received 143 pictures from 54 countries (as of Feb 12, 2013). I took the digital pictures for printing and even asked the photo developer to print them with love. My friends have created a scrapbook out of it. I want the project to be full of love because I believe that love is more than just a feeling, but it is also a strong force.

Earlier this day, February 13, 2013 (ash Wednesday), we took Mama Cing to the hospital for her first Chemotherapy. I have given OUR project and she was touched. She even left her bag in the car just to carry the Scrapbook. I have witnessed her smile as she looks at every page, with your pictures, and with the name of your country. I believe the she felt loved and she received that “love force.” I know she will be fine.
I have been a couchsurfer for more than 2 years now. I have been organizing activities, attending activities and hosting people who needs a couch. But this time, it is different. The project revealed a different face of Couchsurfing. We are all travelers, but because of this project, I realized that there is more to travelling. Love will surpass everything. Love conquers fear. Love heals…and most  importantly, LOVE can unite the world.

I would like to thank everyone who have given their time, effort, creativity and love to make this project possible.  

That's it. Again, I am forever grateful to all of you guys! LEt's keep on praying for her!
With much love,


Well, that was a nice thing to read this morning. I have sent Darby a picture of myself, holding a sign in which I wrote " We love you Mama Cing, stay strong". Now after reading this, it was definitely worth it.
You might be that person who scrolls through so many similar call-for-help/project things on the internet, but you never want to pay attention. However, when you do, an amazing feeling of satisfaction and love suddenly invades you. Therefore, don't try to hold your feelings, spread love where ever you go, living on this planet won't worth a thing if you hold grudge, or hard feelings for others.
Be good, stay positive, do great things, love, dream, wander...
live people !
