Outfit: About a hat and humanity

Me and Mr. Hat. We tried to be together several times but it didn´t really work out. I don´t know what the problem is between us but I think I just didn´t find the right one that fits to me. Also I am still getting used to my long hair and the curls it suddenly developed so adding another piece to my head doesn´t make it easier. But I am not tired of trying so I found this new piece for my wardrobe. I am still not really sure what to think of it, but here are some pictures of the first day I tried my fresh friend.

At the moment a lot of stuff is happening. One of this is my first trial in political activism. Well, that might be a bit exaggerated but I always had the feeling to do something good and now I kicked off a wave of movements for tolerance and humanity. There are some Syrian refugees coming to my hometown and I felt like doing something for them seeing as in these small towns people are not really welcoming because of fear, ignorance or other reasons. Reading comments under the local newspaper articles just makes me sick. I am always feeling the urge to help people. I haven´t really done anything like this before and in Berlin I didn´t really know where to start. So I started this Facebook Group and invited all the people who I know from home and proposed a big donation event and also something social, to welcome the people a bit more and show them that people care about them. As soon as I clicked on the `Create Group´ button it went mad like a box of frogs. The people of the group have so much energy and organise so many amazing things. We have leaflets, contacts in the town hall, the social office, with several organisations, to a book shop where we will collect children´s books and dictionaries. We already made it into the local newspaper. We are planning on doing more. It is a great feeling how people can work together and set something big up when you are sticking together and everyone gives a little bit. I really hope that this will all happen and work out. The big collection of the donations, the getting together with the refugees and hopefully to show people who are living there that there is no need to be afraid, hostile, disrespectful or intolerant.
