"Aurora shows us how a sacrifice, even if a small one, but made with love,  can infect  the good actions and bring forth other seeds of kindness and solidarity - said the promoters - the generous gesture of Aurora is a testimony of  the power of example of the goodness that attracts and inspires imitation, especially when it is spontaneous and disinterested . "
