letters to rwanda.








"Imagine living your entire life without ever receiving a piece of mail.
Now imagine writing to that person.
What would you say? How would they respond?
Rwanda Walk is your chance to find out."

my most favorite photographer is looking for help.
morris traveled to africa this past november
and he's heading back.
he'll be walking over 200 miles across rwanda to personally deliver letters.
here's where you come in:

"We invite you to write anything that you find meaningful: letters, stories, jokes, proverbs, song lyrics, poems, quotes, etc. Make them anonymous or include photos and contact information. Your choice. We will then record their responses and share them with you on this site and in a future fine-art exhibition."

the only criteria is that you title your letter with a human trait or emotion.
it will be the word your rwanda recipient will be responding to.
morris will be documenting their responses.
he'll be posting photos and blogging daily at www.rwandawalk.com,
where you can follow along and see your impact on a world so far away.

it's simple, it's easy, a stranger will be forever grateful.
i encourage you all to take the time and join in on this great idea.
send your letters by April 27th to:

RWANDAWALK
p.o. box 
jackson, wy 83002

(if you'd rather email, please send them to me: meagan{dot}murtagh{at}gmail{dot}com. im happy to print and add to the stack!}
