🎲 Leisure and fantasy are the sweet freedom from the demands of work. It is like a recess for adults, it is reading a book or walking, without rushing. The end of summer may seem like the end of that freedom, but it is still there, always, if we know how to take care of it.
📬 In this newsletter we bring three beautiful projects that appreciate fantasy by treating it as a unique opportunity to connect with other people and accompany them in their three life stages: childhood, maturity and old age. All of them achieve this by uniting passions, sharing joyful learning moments and re-generating experiences. Enjoy supporting them too!
New Arcadia 📚
😊 Do you believe in the power of dreams? In Arcadia yes! Sandra, mother of a 5-year-old girl, lover of stories and an expert in dreaming, wanted her daughter to experience the happiness of being wrapped in papers, colored pencils and books. She opened a beautiful bookstore and today it is a family business specialized in children's and youth books, stationery and toys linked to the Clot neighborhood. Now, together with new colleagues, they want to go further.
🧑🏽 With the Nueva Arcadia they are consolidated as a meeting point and sociocultural support to generate activities within a model of Social and Solidarity Economy. They will continue their specialty in issues of parenting, feminism, and sustainability, inviting the community and neighborhood to be part of the ARCADIA family to exchange resources, knowledge, workshops, talks and life stories.

Music to wake up 👵🏻
🎼 Rosario is 77 years old, and Alzheimer's takes her through intense moments of agitation, wandering aimlessly from one place to another, without recognizing where she is, the names of her children or their date of birth. Of course, when listening to the first chords of "Bésame Mucho" she connects with her youth, with memories of her life and associated emotions, finding in her History a corner of Peace where she can stop and contemplate life near its end.
😌 This music to "awaken" associated emotions "has been lived in hundreds of stories that have been accompanied by the association that launches this crowdfunding, with the mission of bringing the music of their lives to people with Alzheimer's and those around them, promoting a improvement of their condition and quality of life.
👉🏽 They sincerely ask for your help in the campaign they start on the occasion of World Alzheimer's Month, either with a donation or simply by sharing the link to Music to wake up
