Miriam's Art Work & Mimento

Miriam turned even the simplest gesture of sending a greeting card into something special,
always taking the time to make individual cards for everyone. Before her death she had hoped
to start her own business, Mimento, producing handmade cards. Her family have taken up this
idea and hope to develop it further. For more information please visit:


All proceeds from the sale of the cards will be donated to the Miriam Hyman Memorial Fund
which is currently supporting the work of ORBIS UK (Charity No. 1061352), a charity which
aims at eliminating avoidable blindness globally, helping people to see clearly again.

A Marathon for you Miriam

I'm running the nyc marathon on November 6th 2005 and raising money for Orbis, in memory of Miriam. (Orbis will, in the first instance, be the charity which benefits from all donations to the Miriam Hyman Memorial Fund.

You can see my page on the Orbis UK website:

It can also be accessed directly from the Orbis UK homepage, and scrolling down: http://www.orbis.org.uk/bins/index.asp

I did it! I completed the NYC Marathon in 5 hours and 2 minutes. Despite losing a month in training due to an injured knee, I'm ecstatic to have reached the finish line (with the knee and I) in one piece. THANK YOU for all your support and encouragement. You have helped to raise an INCREDIBLE amount of money, the total of which is still on the rise!
