A letter for
you, from all of us here.
A letter for you, from all of us here.
Welcome to our big corner of the universe.
This is a letter from all of us here, for you. We are going to tell you what you can do together with us.
But before that, we ask you to pause for a moment. Stop, and think about why you are reading this. All the books we have read, shared and lived by – they made us who we are today, at this very moment. They brought you here. Now, imagine living in a blue tent with your family and at school, reading a story about how plastic is harmful to the world.
Storybooks don't have to be broken.
Children live in such tents in communities that we walk past every day in our neighbourhood, city and country. They live in Delhi, Dacca and Lagos as well as in conflict zones in the Sudan.
The UNHCR has a code for it.
Item Nr. 2617. Waterproof, rotproof and UV-resistant reinforced plastic tarpaulin designed for long outdoor use in all climates. Made of woven HDPE fiber, laminated on both sides with LDPE coating to maintain sheltering capacities for one year. Fire retardant is optional.
The UN loves blue.
A line of six UNHCR logos must be printed on both sides of the sheet. Typeface Helvetica Bold. Color Pantone Blue 300 CMYK C = 100 % M= 45 % Y=0 % K=0%. Across the five meter side, placed one meter from the bottom edge of the five meter side. The combined height of the emblem and logo is 55 cm.
Near the railway station in Delhi, Makoko in Lagos and Yida in Sudan — blue, is not the preferred color for tents. It is yellow. Sometimes pink.
And 55 cm is what you cut to make a window.
We need a different kind of storybook.
A storybook that anybody can write. A storybook that is real, human and irreverent. One, that is always not a fairy tale. It should cost nothing. It can be written by people like you and us, and the hundreds of children we serve. It needs only a single sheet of paper. It has eight pages of magic inside.
Experience it for yourself.
