A few months back I launched a memorial campaign in memory of my son Asaf (nick names Blondi) who was killed in a terror attack. I asked people all over the world to take my son's picture and send me a photo of it or with it from ever they want, hometown or from travel. by now I got hundreds of photos from 70 countries.

You can see the full explanation at:

Below is the original letter I sent on the Internet originally with the campaign description.

Now that Christmas is nearby I wish to get photos of my son near Christmas trees, Christmas decorations in front yards or in malls or in any public place, any photo that relates to Christmas is welcomed.

Please help the spirit of my son experience Christmas and see the beauty of the holiday.

Blondi’s world tour 2008!On March 5th 2003, a young high school boy named Asaf (nicknamed Blondi) was on his way home from school. A suicide murderer who blew himself up on Asaf's bus killed him and sixteen other innocent men, women and children.Asaf was almost seventeen years old when he died, and he is my son.As every young man does, Asaf would have finished high school and service and would have gone on a trip to see the world: South America, the Far East, India or maybe Australia and New Zealand. He wanted very much to go surfing at the famous beaches in Hawaii and Australia. Asaf wanted to hike the high peaks of Nepal and the Himalayas. Now I am sending Asaf on his world tour. Without a passport or a back pack. I am sending you only this picture and his spirit and ask you to help take Asaf wherever you go. India, Thailand, New Zealand or the Chinese wall – even the Olympics. Wherever you go, take out the picture, take a photo of it in the place you are and email it back to me (Yossi@Blondi.co.il).If you are not traveling, take the photo in your city or town, at the mall, city stadium, or even your front or back yard.Asaf will travel to these places through your photos, which will be displayed in Asaf’s world tour photo album on the internet. This way Asaf will be at all those wonderful places in the world he wasn’t lucky enough to see. You can print a few copies of the attached picture and leave copies on your way, hang it on a bulletin board at the hotel or the guest house you stay in, leave it along the hiking path, put it in the visitor’s book you write your experience in.Help me get my son around the world and make his world tour go through each country on the globe.Yossi Zur, Asaf's fatherEmail: Yossi@Blondi.co.ilWeb:   www.Blondi.co.il
