Sand Castle for a Cause


Whether you eagerly await this time of the year or you dread the thought of being single, here's something which will take your mind off romantic, materialistic love that retailers want to sell you on, but instead, make you think about the love seen in the face of people like Simon Smith, a Cancer survivor who has taken initiative in association with Sand Cult – Sand Sculpting Company and Cancer Patients Aid Association (CPAA) to show the importance of this Crucial Cause.
Simon Smith is a UK-based Sand Wizard. He was recently in High Street Phoenix, a mega mall in Mumbai to build a 10X10 Sand Castle in the Courtyard of the mall for "World Cancer Day” (4th Feb, 2012). His extraordinary masterpiece was completed on February 4, 2012 – The World Cancer Day and was exhibited until February 12, 2012. Here are a few pictures to show you how magnificent his creation was -


I'm sure you realize how much hard work, patience and care he put in to finish this masterpiece, oh-so-perfectly. I've seen Sand works before, but the fact that he did this to support such a noble cause instantly put his creation at the top of the list of best Sand Works! :)
The sand castle was free for everyone to see although donations in any kind were welcome since the sculpture was for a noble cause – to raise charity for cancer patients and support this art form and the artists. Not only was this sand castle the first of its kind in Mumbai, but also is an epitome of humanity towards Cancer patients.
Isn't he a survivor? :) I love his smile! Its so genuine

  6. glad to keep up with such events happening in Mumbai through your blog. The castle looks so strong and yet made of sand I cannot even fathom the kind of nerves he must have been through building it.
    Love Ash.

  14. A children cancer society may also help to provide support and hope for patients with certain diseases or illnesses. It can help to encourage them to focus on getting better or if this is not a possibility then make the most of the time they have left as well as coming to terms with everything.
