Ronnie 2¢ from Atlantic Shores, United Kingdom

Always a good idea and reminds me of sponsoring a zoo-animal and seeing my name on the enclosure. But it escaped after three months and took my money with it.

Elena Kotrotsou from Drossia, Greece

Nice wall!

Wonderful shot, Curly. The gentleman reading the wall opposite - must be looking for people he knew.

Very clever idea. I bet lots of people are willing to buy eternal fame this way. Very well captured too.

Super picture Curly and I love their idea to collect funds as well. Love the colors and the composition here :)

daniela scharnowski from Berlin, Germany

clever idea indeed - and it makes a great wallpaper also! When we visited the Karl-May-Museum (lovely!) in Radebeul they only offered Certificates for putting on the wall if you donour over 100€.... but they don´t have much walls - it´s in Karl May´s old (small) Villa.
