On November 13th, in memory of the victims of last year’s attacks in Paris, paper lanterns will float down the Canal Saint Martin. Organized by 3 Parisians, his lantern ceremony will benefit two non-profits supporting victims of terrorism acts and their families: AfVT.org and 13Onze15.org.
This candle-lit lantern ceremony has inspired many other countries to do the same: China, Thailand, Japan, Hawaii and more. According to some, the white paper lanterns are used to represent those who died in the past year. According to others, they represent wishes.
In association with the City of Paris, we will remember the ones we lost and, together, wish for a brighter tomorrow. If you cannot join us, our staff can float a lantern on your behalf.
ToujoursParis will collect your donations and share all profits with 2 non-profits helping the victims of terrorism acts and their families: AfVT.org and 13Onze15.org.
The City of Paris is helping us financially and ordered 5000 lantern kits (lantern + LED candle). 2000 kits are available through this campaign; the rest will be available at partnered stores in Paris.
If we meet our goals, we will float the Canal Saint Martin with thousands of lights and spend the money as follows:
- Donation to 13Onze15 : 1840€
- Donation to AfVT : 1840€
Help us reach our goal and go over, so we can donate more money to help the victims and their families.
