A few months ago, I donated a meager amount to a Kickstarter project called Swings: Bolivia that was, surprise, organized around installing make-shift swings throughout Bolivia. I liked it because it was a playful idea, philosophical, a little arty, and just plain fun.
For my donation, I got to essentially sponsor a swing, and to choose what to write on the bottom of it. My custom message was simply “hacia el cielo” which I hope means “to the sky” or “skyward.” I used Google Translate, so you never know.
In any case, I just got an email from the project leads with these photos of “my” swing and the following message:
Here’s your swing! We hung while we were on a 20 kilometer trek from Chulumani to Irupana. It overlooks the valleys in a way that’s best described as AWESOME.
I’m just at a loss for words. So cool.
