98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.
Lolita Vietnam 1st Birthday’s meetup <3
Here we go, the first birthday of our community :) I’m so happy, I’m so proud. I can’t stop my tears when I think of what we’ve been through this year. We still have a lot of things to do, and I’ll try my best!
Happy birthday my dearest Lolita Vietnam! :)
P/s: I was wearing Sweet Jewelry Princess skirt in navy by BtSSB, a IW polka dot blouse (it arrived on the meetup’s morning and I couldn’t wait to wear it x”D). I wanted to wear red shoes so I added a little red ribbon on my collar <3 But I don’t know why my skirt looked so weird on the last picture, like my petticoat was going somewhere … /__\
