Now tumblr, I know we can be useful in spreading the word, getting people fluffy chickens, and signing petitions for good causes. What I’m asking you to sign is that Nicholas Winton would be nominated for the Nobel Peace prize because of his efforts of rescuing 669 children during the holocaust. While risking his own life he organized train transports of the children from the endangered area to Great Britain which was not yet affected by the war. There he found new homes for them and allowed them to start a new, safe life. He never talked about his deed and had it not been for his wife, who in 1988 by chance discovered documents about the whole operation, his heroic act would be forever hidden from the eyes of the public and the saved children. Nicholas Winton turned 104 this year, so lets make an effort to sign this in his good name and all of those who he’s saved. There’s only ten thousand more signatures to go! I know we can do this!
