Great story

Hi Redsbird,

I loved this! It was such an excellent idea to pick up on the story of the auction and its two participants. I am still thinking about the choices they made in the bidding process. I felt engaged with both women and am inspired to find out more about this community of migrant workers and the challenges they face. Thank you for sharing this with all of us. A really great job.

Telling a story

Dear Redsbird,

Thank you for telling this story and opening a window to the world of migrant workers and the resources the may or may not be equipped with to further their life goals. Your story-telling skills really helped convey the reality for migrant workers, and what training can be provided for youth to make decisions that positively impact their futures.

In friendship and solidarity,

Excellent video!

I was so intrigued by this story and the two women who attended the auction. The idea of auctioning friendship, kind workers, power, etc., is such an interesting idea. And the reactions of the two women told a fascinating story. Thank you for making it possible for us to "attend" the auction this way, and to learn more about the migrant workers.
