Timeless Audrey is alive!

Great news for all of the Audrey fans around the world who have been asking about the Timeless Audrey exhibit, the traveling display of Audrey Hepburn memorabilia. I got an email this morning from a fellow by the name of Daniel who tells me that the exhibit is currently in Berlin (Germany), and will stay there until May 10th. This is very exciting! After spending more than a year in Japan, where Audrey is still a very huge icon, the flats and displays needed to be refurbished after a lot of moving and general wear and tear, and no one at the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund was sure when the exhibit would be ready to travel again. Now we know. :)

Anyway, all proceeds from visitors to Timeless Audrey will directly benefit UNICEF's All Children In School, a project we know was very close to Audrey's heart. I'm putting up a copy of the flyer (in English, so I don't need to translate for you) below, and Daniel has also asked that I put up a link to a website put up expressly for Timeless Audrey's time in Germany, which I'm more than happy to do. The site can be found here. It's all in German, though, so brush up on your Deutsche before heading in. :)

That's the only information I have about the exhibit at this time, but I'll be sure to keep an eye out and see if I can't find out if it will be making other European stops. It'd be silly not to, right? And maybe someday it'll come back to the States and do a more extensive tour for us Americans that can't afford a trip right now. *sigh* Soon. The bad never lasts forever, even though it may feel like it, right?



Okay, that's all for now. If you haven't been around to visit lately, then you probably don't know that the Audrey Hepburn Children's Fund website got quite a major overhaul and now matches the Audrey Bag site. Go look!
