At the time this photo was taken she was about 2,5 years old and diagnosed with Leukemia (Blood-cancer). At the moment this lifechanging hug took place she would have no more than a few weeks left to live.
In her last few weeks Phéline was invited to attend a very, very special event named “Dreamnight at the Zoo”. This annual event started in 1996 in Rotterdam Zoo “Blijdorp”. The sick and handicapped children attending this exclusive event are usually not capable of going to the zoo or have a fun exciting day out at all! Especially for them the Dreamnight at the Zoo foundation arranges transport and facilities needed to make sure they will have the brightest smile possible. Currently more than 258 zoos and themeparks all over the world take part in this event and they all invite children who need a special day out of their regular hospitalized lives.
Last year Me, my girlfriend and two good friends had the honor of attending this event with our fursuits to entertain the kids. The theme for this year was “Butterflies” and therefore we all had butterfly wings on our suits.
Phéline always loved butterflies, the bright colors made her happy and as soon as she noticed Pinky and her wings, she fell in love.
Pinky instantly became her bestest friend and the hug that followed was heartbreakingly beautiful.
And there I stood, watching :IconFurryFursuitMaker: hugging Phélne… I was nailed to the ground in fursuit… crying. This is the sole reason why I love doing what I do. This is what makes Fursuiting so amazing to me; the chance to brighten someones day who truly, truly needs a smile.
This is why I fursuit. This is the true meaning of Fursuiting!That day helped Phéline in regaining the will and strength to fight and today, almost a year later she is still alove and kicking! And Pinky is still her bestie that visited her room in between her treatments, came to her birthday party when she turned 3 and went to a dance party with her in the hospital! But that’s a story you can read in my journal… The story of Phéline, The little wondergirl!

“A 14-year-old Indian-origin boy has come up with a unique plan that could help the U.S. save nearly $400 million a year by merely changing the font used on official documents.
Suvir Mirchandani, a student in a Pittsburgh-area middle school, claimed that if the federal government used the Garamond font exclusively it could save about $136 million per year, nearly 30 per cent less than the estimated $467 dollars it spends annually on ink.
An additional $234 million could be saved annually if state governments also implemented the change.
Mirchandani said the idea came to him when he was trying to think of ways to cut waste and save money as part of a science fair project at his school, CNN reported.
The youngster noticed that he was getting a lot more handouts than he did in elementary school and decided to figure out if he could minimize use of paper and ink.
While recycling paper was one way to save money and conserve resources, Mirchandani said little attention had been paid to the ink used on the papers.
“Ink is two times more expensive than French perfume by volume,” he said, adding that he then decided to focus his project on finding ways to cut down the cost of ink.
As part of his experiment, he collected random samples of teachers’ handouts and focused on the most commonly used characters such as e, t, a, o and r.
He noted how often each character was used in different fonts like Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans and then measured how much ink was used for each letter, using an ink coverage software.
From his analysis, Mirchandani figured out that by using the Garamond font with its thinner strokes, his school district could reduce its ink consumption by 24 per cent and in turn save as much as $21,000 annually.
He repeated his tests on five sample pages from documents on the Government Printing Office website and got similar results that changing the font would save money.
Mirchandani’s findings have been published in the Journal for Emerging Investigators (JEI), a publication founded by a group of Harvard students in 2011 that provides a platform for the work of middle school and high school students.
One of the journal’s founders Sarah Fankhauser said that of the nearly 200 submissions they have received since 2011, Mirchandani’s project stood out.
“We were so impressed. We really could really see the real-world application in Suvir’s paper,” Fankhauser was quoted as saying…”

Sorry, did you say she wasn’t a role model?
marilyn is my biggest role model so don’t even go there
and let’s not forget this
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at the popular Mocambo, in Hollywood, because of her race. Marilyn, who loved her music and supported civil rights, called the owner of the Mocambo and told him that if he booked Ella immediately, she would take a front table every night. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. After that, Ella never had to play in a small jazz club again.
"She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it." - Ella Fitzgerald about Marilyn Monroe
