Our dreams are a pool of that which we are exposed to and the sum of our experiences in life. Four weeks ago if in the heat of day you bumped into Virginia or Blackie and asked them how the depths of your pocket would make the scorch on their chapped lips and dried emaciated skin a bit politer, they would have in haste and ignorance asked for a twenty shilling coin, we know this because on that fateful day we first met them, they did.
A love story that has catapulted their life from normalcy to the limitless heights of dreams and ambitions. Heights that they literally soar as they flew to a three day holiday to Diani fully sponsored by Bonfire adventures and were dressed by Pabaa Collections. These two love birds lives will never be the same again not because they have finally made it in life but because through an overwhelming response from Kenyans and the attention given to their zest to love against all odds, they now get to see life under a very different scope. That of daring to become.
They laughed, marveled, wondered, got overwhelmed, felt challenged as they experienced their first time in the Coast and the good side of life. It was an emotional yet vastly fulfilling affair for both Blackie and Virginia and here is a pictorial melt down of their life changing experience.

Pabaa Collections did quite well with the outfits didn’t they?

Life is unpredictable and the possibility of falling on the lucky curve makes the yearning of seeing tomorrow intense. For these two, Lady Luck struck and changed their fortunes. They still have a long way to go but with a renewed perception and zeal to do life, the journey is half done. Blackie and Virginia enjoyed unsolicited fame and have been given a second shot at doing life with heads full of rainbow dreams. This will however remain just that if their appeal for jobs is not met. They are no longer living on corridors and feeding on left overs as Kenyans of good will (both in Kenya and outside Kenya) came through and ensured that they live and love under a decent home. The showering of gifts from all corners of Kenya and beyond were and still remain to be overwhelming. We still pray that a more solid foundation for the couple shall be achieved to give this story a happy ending tone. The chain reaction intended by Muchiri Frames set off three weeks ago. Virginia and Blackie now know how to aspire and become, they have gratefully feasted on the fish that we as Kenyans offered and has inspired them to want a fishing rod. Jobs. An Opportunity to prosper.
To everyone who came on board, Oceans of gratitude may not capture aptly just how humbled we are. We pray that God expound your territories and enlarge your stores of blessings. For more life changing stories of love, this page best be your second home. Keep vigil
