Armindo is from Ponte da Barca, is paraplegic, and has many dreams. One of them? Edit a book with poems of your own. It is intended here to help you realize this dream.

The campaign aims to raise money for the publication of a poetry book: Armindo's dream! In his poems, besides talking about love, he tells us the anguish of his condition, his difficulties, the prejudices associated with his image and possibilities. He feels an immense pain that he transcribes in his poems. In this sense, and since you can articulate and describe your pain and emotions very well, it is a remarkable first-person account of the plight of your poor condition and how important it is for others to feel what It is living like this. It is a remarkable contribution to all those in difficult situations. It emanates from his writings an unshakable force, a will to live that is hard to match. An example for those who complain about nothing. Funding is all for the organization, review, and publication of the book, as well as for its public presentation.
