It was almost a year ago, that a waterspout caused floods on several places in the northen side of Terceira Island. My family and I were one of the families afected by it, one among many others. I remember feeling helpless and scared, not knowing what to do do next.
That is why this recent tragedy in Fajãzinha, a small village in Flores Island, touched something deep inside me. Because the images that I see in the news are very similar to the ones I witnessed last year.
So, I am asking for your help. Please, specially in this amazing time of year, help those who lost everything, those who saw their lifetime belongings disapear in seconds, those who only have left the shock and sadness. Help, because if we dont´t help each others what will happen? Help, so that these people know they are not alone.
Here is the data to those of you who might whant or can contribute.
My name is Márcia and I live in a beautiful island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean named Terceira. It is located in the Portuguese archipelago of Açores (Azores in English, Azoren in German).
I started collecting postcards when I was just a teenager but until I joined the Postcrossing Project, it was a very small collection. :)
Since then I’ve received so many beautiful cards and learned so many new things that I’ve decided it would be interesting to share that knowledge and beauty with my friends and fellow postcrossers. Hence, this blog!
I will try and make it as fun and interesting as possible and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Oh, and please don’t be shy! If you feel like it, leave a comment! Hugs to all, Márcia
