HELLO EVERYONE,
MESSAGE FROM PETER STERLING. SOME FRIEND HAVE BEEN ASKING ME WHAT IS THE SILKE GORLDT FOUNDATION ALL ABOUT. WELL WE THOUGHT OF AN IDEA TO TELL HOW THE FOUNDATION CAME TO BE. TWO DAYS AFTER THE ACCIDENT I WAS INFORMED ABOUT IT BY PETRA GOESCHL WHO WAS AT THE CONTEST. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT AND WE WERE BOTH IN SHOCK BUT AFTER SOME HOURS I TRIED TO THINK OF A WAY TO TAKE A VERY SAD TRAGEDY AND MAKE SOMETHING POSITIVE. SILKE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON WITH LOTS OF ALOHA FOR EVERYONE. WE THOUGHT WE WOULD LIKE TO THINK OF A WAY THAT HER SPIRIT COULD LIVE ON FOREVER AND CONTINUE TO BE AN INPSIRATION IN A SOMETIMES TROUBLED WORLD. THE THOUGHT OF A CHARITABLE FOUNDATION WHERE PEOPLE COULD GIVE MONEY TO CHARITIES THROUGH THE SILKE FOUNDATION CAME TO MIND AS A WAY TO KEEP HER SPIRIT ALIVE. I HAVE PERSONALLY MADE A SIZABLE DONATION MYSELF BECAUSE IF THIS MONEY CAN GO TO A CHARITY TO HELP SOMEONE IN NEED THEN I AM HONORED THAT MY DONATION WILL BE USED IN THIS WAY. FURTHERMORE THE FOUNDATION IS NOT JUST ABOUT DONATIONS IT IS ABOUT PEOPLE WHO WANT TO HELP TO KEEP THE ALOHA WHICH SILKE HAD ALIVE IN THE WORLD THROUGH VOLUNTEER WORK IN A LOCAL CHARITY THEMSELVES OR WHO WANT TO SET UP A CHAPTER OF THE FOUNDATION IN ANOTHER COUNTRY TO TRY TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE THROUGH CHARITABLE WORKS AND VOLUTEER SERVICE ETC. THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNNING. WE NEED PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD IN A POSITIVE WAY WHATEVER THAT MAY BE. EVEN THOUGH SILKE HAS PASSED ON SHE CAN CONTINUE TO BE AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL. BY THE WAY THE PEOPLE WHO WORK ON THE FOUNDATION DO NOT RECEIVE ANY MONEY WHATSOEVER FROM THE FOUNDATION. IN FACT MOST OF THE PEOPLE HAVE DONATED THEIR OWN MONEY TO THE FOUNDATION TO GET IT STARTED. WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS. ALSO WE ARE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO HELP OR JUST MAYBE HAVE A GOOD IDEA FOR SOME CHARITIES WHO WOULD BE WORTHY OF RECEIVING MONEY FROM THE SILKE FOUNDATION. ALOHA PETER STERLING.
