The Tibetan’s humanity and benevolence and their will to give their own nation a future, disoriented us.
And like this, the adventure begun. It’s the twenty-eighth day of April, year 2006: the Costa Family Foundation story begins like a fairy tale, not considering the fate, ending in beauty.Two persons were going to visit the people, who would have been supported by the “Maratona dles Dolomites”, from here shortly. The “Maratona dles Dolomites” is a cyclist marathon, which thanks to a large number of followers, permits a solidary action, lasting one day per year, and helping many weak and disadvantaged persons.
The Tibetan’s humanity and benevolence and their will to give their own nation a future, disoriented us. It made us reflect: is it ever possible that we can not do anything else for them? Anything more? And what if we would act seriously, involving the family’s company?
To bring home a simple report of a credible reality, which didn’t even concern us totally… that wasn’t enough for us. It was then, that we approached the Tibetan exiled nation in India and that we visited the village of Dharamsala, North India. There we discovered a good nation, delicate and patient, a nation, which will wait with perseverance to return to his native country, to return to Tibet, the Roof of the World.
We came home with a challenging spirit; the desire to help concretely was mature. A year and a half later, on September 19th, 2007, the Costa Family Foundation O.N.L.U.S. has been born. The foundation, thanks to our donators, is still supporting people in need.
