Dear ABF friends,
life is a gift, is a privilege to celebrate every time we breathe; existence is an amazing mystery to trust with full confidence. When, deeply moved, I join my hands in prayer, my gratitude for my adventure on earth commands, strongly, to bless the one that of life is the main partner and friend: ‘Sister Death’, as St. Francis used to call her, who provides us with time, growth and change.
Dear friends, life is a gift that we receive and we give. Mindful of this, I would like to ask that you consider a choice: a bequest in favor of the Andrea Bocelli Foundation – an act longer than your whole life.
Every existence is unique and memorable, and it is part of a much higher project that does not end and is not confined within human criteria and boundaries, a project whose fundamental substance, language and money is love. It is looking at that divine project, which welcomes all of us, and which we can just guess in its immense beauty that I am asking you to reflect on the possibility of a great gesture of love: becoming donors of an extraordinary gift, that does not expect anything in return.
With a donation, you will make your life a work of art. Together, we will celebrate life beyond ours, in the smiles of so many children who, thanks to ABF projects, will have the possibility of a future. In those smiles, you will see a reflection of yourselves. Quoting the Russian-Soviet poet Boris Pasternak: “You have been in others and you will remain in others. And what difference does it make to you if later on that is called your memory? This will be you – the you that enters the future and becomes a part of it”.
