A heart for "Dê mais coração" in Lisbon

The model 
This post is exceptionally not about cakes, but about an organization called "Dê mais coração" from Portugal. We spent last weekend in Lisbon and came across this one by chance. The organization was looking for donations, but in a very nice way we thought. Between February 14 and March 14, they had big letters made from wire reading LOVE <3 placed on the "Praca do Rossio" square. For a donation of 3 € one could buy a love lock (which you might know from other cities, especially bridges).

The original

The special thing about these love locks was a metal heart on which you could write something.

 The organization was collecting for children in Mozambique. They are supporting the local ICOR hospital, which does surgeries on the hearts of children to save lives.

Should you be planning on staying in Lisbon until March 15, just pass by there and contribute to the donation. Its for a good cause!
