We Believe in Balloons is an initiative launched by Yazmany Arboleda, a multimedia artist who is uniting people from around the world with the power of street art in various cities. To reach his goal, he created a campaign to share 10,000 pink balloons with the citizens of Kabul, Afghanistan. The pink balloons, along with a personal message inside, will be handed to the people on their way to work.
To support the cause and its inspiring message, Film Annex is giving away 1,000 balloons for you to share. Just go to the We Believe in Balloons website, and use the code PINKannex to give a balloon and a personal message to a citizen of Kabul.
About the collaboration with Film Annex, Yazmany Arboleda says, “We are incredibly excited to be collaborating with the Film Annex community. Their work to empower women throughout Afghanistan by giving them the skills and opportunity to lead better lives is paramount. By teaching women to create video content they are giving them the tools to express their creativity and this very much falls in line with the mission of the We Believe In Balloons campaign. Our end goal is to create space for self-expression through the arts in Kabul and throughout Afghanistan.”
Francesco Rulli, President and Founder of Film Annex, adds, "It's an incredible and meaningful story and project. Yazmany Arboleda is a creative mind who understands the power of the arts and sustainable philanthropy."
