"Be the Miracle" grows with extreme power. It is constantly increasing its human resources (volunteers) but also its lending of goods. It has created a core that attracts conscious people that really want to lend help in general, aiming for social prosperity beyond ideologies, national origins, religious or political ideas. The number of organizations /carriers that are interested for our work is increasing all the time and they ask for their beneficiaries to take place in out actions. The messages "I'm the Miracle - be the miracle" and "Every child is a Miracle" are assimilated in friends', volunteers' and carriers' conciousness.
