We need ambassadors to disperse cards nationally:

DM 'memory cards' are being exchanged nationally. The cards prompt and assemble a conversation about the memory of lost lives and changed skyline during the events of September 11, 2001. With each exchange of the card, a moment of remembrance is initiated and prompts a dispersed, collective conversation about the memory of loved ones lost or affected by the events of 9/11.

We are dispersing the cards nationally as we would like for every state to be represented in this collective memorial. We still need representatives at the following states: • Alabama • Alaska • American Samoa • Arizona • Arkansas • Colorado • Connecticut • Delaware • District of Columbia • Georgia • Guam • Hawaii • Idaho • Illinois • Indiana • Iowa • Kentucky • Louisiana • Maine • Maryland • Massachusetts • Minnesota • Mississippi • Missouri • Montana • Nebraska • Nevada • New Hampshire • New Jersey • New Mexico • North Dakota • Northern Marianas Islands • Ohio • Oklahoma • Oregon • Pennsylvania • Puerto Rico • Rhode Island • South Dakota • Tennessee • Utah • Vermont • Virginia • Virgin Islands • West Virginia • Wisconsin • Wyoming

+ If you would like to share 10 cards with 10 people and photograph them beautifully in one of those particular states, send us a note.
+ Before venturing on your exchange and photo capture, visit our Panoramio site to read our guidelines and to be inspired by the emerging memorial of images.

Our team:
The dispersed memorial idea was conceived by a couple of us, former New York City residents, shortly after the events of 2001. The idea was in part inspired by the collective spirit at the time and the impromptu memorials that emerged everywhere throughout the city. With a decade approaching since this sad moment, we are compelled to execute the memorial. With our grown team, we have developed the virtual interchange and mapping of information as part of the memorial. Meet our team below.
