Connect The World
We would like to help raising the understanding between people of different cultures, ages, believes, social classes, etc. As we believe that transferring a certain message in shape of a gift could make the receiver understand the good intentions of the former owner, we will transfer small gifts from one person to another.

The basic idea was to start with our own gift and introduce it to the first person crossing our way (e.g., a host). Instead, we were starting with a gift given to us. This happened because a person heard about our “Connecting the World” idea and handed us over a gift. Thus, without expecting it, the whole idea started by itself! ;D
When handing over a gift, the receiver is offered to provide a new message and a gift, which we are transferring to the next person. In that way we are building a chain connecting people of different nationalities, ages, social backgrounds, etc.
We are reporting every single message transfer and its meaning on this page.
