Have you heard of HONY?

It is quite surprising, given the amount of time I spend online that I had not heard about HONY before.

HONY stands for Humans Of New York. It is a stunning collection of thousands of people who were photographed in the city of by street photographer Brandon Stanton. With the pictures, he also adds quotes and short stories from the lives of the people.

Now his #Facebook page and blog has millions of followers from all over the world.

Recently he was in and the way he portrayed Pakistan with all its colours left me astounded. No words can really describe his contribution in making this world a better place. in addition to some remarkable stories, he has also helped raise over a million dollars to end bonded labour in Pakistan.

Reading his blog, following his Facebook page and above all looking at all his efforts on behalf of Pakistanis, I can only say "Thank you Brandon, the humans of Pakistan will always be indebted to you."

Do take out some time to visit the following links:

An interesting resource. Let's hope he gets around to many more cities/countries.
