On March 23 2012, Up Greek Tourism, a private initiative promoting Greece as a touristic destination, will be announcing the successful completion of its first task, to place a giant billboard in Times Square, New York, inviting Americans to visit Greece. The electronic billboard, which will be on display for 30 days, will remind the public of the natural beauty of the Greek land.
In just 20 days, Up Greek Tourism surpassed its goal by raising $20,352 from private individuals to fund a billboard advisement in New York City. About 50 percent of the supporters were located outside Greece, including Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, France Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Qatar, Russia Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, U.A.E, U.K. and U.S.A.
The project was managed by Greeks around the world on a voluntary basis, with no budget or hired professionals. Using LoudSauce as its platform, the campaign was mainly promoted via social media networks, such as facebook and twitter.

Δεν λαμβάνουν κανένα βοήθημα από πουθενά , δεν έχουν ιατροφαρμακευτική και νοσηλευτική φροντίδα από …πουθενά .
Ο σύζυγος σχεδόν τυφλός η σύζυγος με βαριά μορφή εγκεφαλικό , και αφασικές εγκεφαλικές διαταραχές !! δεν λαμβάνουν κανένα βοήθημα από πουθενά !!
Ούτε ένα ηλεκτροκίνητο καροτσάκι δεν τους δίνουν ( ένα φθηνό αναπηρικό σκούτερ ) για να μπορέσουν να επιβιώσουν , δεν μπορούν να πάνε ούτε για να αγοράσουν τα τρόφιμά τους !!!!
Για την ώρα , αυτά βγαίνουν στην.. φόρα , για τους ανάπηρους… μαϊμούδες !!!!
Shida is the new kid in class in a private boarding school in Tanzania. He is shy, he has no self-esteem, he does not speak one word of English – the primary language in the school, and he suffers from albinism. Like most children with albinism in the country Shida was taken away from his parents to be protected from the witchcraft related killings.
The film follows Shida during his first year at the new school where the rules are strict and tolerance low. He is trying his best to meet the demands. The school is a chance of an education and to escape a life on the bottom of society. With the help from his new friend Allan he is struggling to become better in school and to be accepted by the teachers and pupils.
