#Project324: The Beginning

Its been 3 weeks since Chris turned 18. For his 18th birthday Christos received over 200 wishes from people all over the world on facebook posts, blog comments, private messages and emails.

His story was published in 4 different countries, shared over 100 times and read by more than 5,000 people (ant1wo, omonoianews.com, Ambitious About Autism, Vantage Magazine, International UN day).

#Project324 was distributed in 18 countries (the Wales cards were split between Wales and Australia). From these 18 countries, we got responses to cards from Sri Lanka, Wales, Ireland, England, the USA, Iraq, Switzerland, Kenya, France, Greece and Cyprus. People from 11 out of the 18 countries found one of the cards I cut by hand, visited the blog and took the time to send us a message for Christos’ birthday.  map

Christos got postcards from Switzerland, ecards from the UK, a t-rex from Brussels and a beautiful video from Kenya (which I still watch every single day). People helping with the project, and people responding to this project went above and beyond to make sure that my brother got a birthday wish. The messages, love and support we got throughout the 3 months #Project324 ran were overwhelming.
