Dear friends and family,
Please join me in celebrating this Mothers Day with the launch of LovelytoMe.com and sharing a digital picture of your “Mom”.
LovelytoMe.com is a living online community gallery inspired by the film Lovely to Me (Immigrant Mother) created by Taiyo Na and Gary San Angel with the Asian Arts Initiative and Chinatown community in Philadelphia.
You can upload a photo of your mom from anywhere around the world and connect the photo with Google Maps.
You can share a picture of your mom, grand mom, aunty, or that special someone who helped raise you and make you who you are today.
It can be a picture of your mom from an old scrapbook photo or a favorite pic with you and your mom.
Don’t have a picture of you with your mom. Draw stick figures!
Just be Creative!
Special Thanks to Taiyo Na for writing such a beautiful song and for sharing it with the world.
Very special thanks to Sean Brown for website and logo design help, Byron Bennet who created the PhotoSmash WordPress Photo Gallery plugin, and the Asian Arts Initiative Apprenticeship program for their work on the site.
Hope you can find time to honor your mom in some way today and everyday.
Happy Mothers Day!
