This was one of the first goals I ever added back when I first signed up to this website, when the idea of releasing a balloon sounded cute and fun. It didn't take me long to realise that I would never complete this goal, because our struggling world doesn't need another balloon released into it. Still, I decided not to remove it from my list as I thought that I could find an alternative way of completing it. I researched alternatives to balloon releases and found that many of those alternatives are no more environmentally friendly. In the end I have made a donation to the UK charity Marine Conservation Society.
Please don't do this! It's really bad for the environment and kills animals, including sea turtles.
When my grandma died of cancer, a year later and every year on her death anniversary we let off balloons with notes on them for her to read up in heaven.
A quote de A Menina que Roubava Livros.
The note I tied to the balloon said this, "Life is tough, but so are you. Find a reason to smile today. Also, read the Book of Mormon! It will bring a happiness deeper than you have known into your life." Then I wrote my phone number hoping whoever finds it will contact me
So I didn't want to pollute the environment and all and was looking for some eco-friendly alternative. This proved to be pretty difficult because any time you're just gonna leave something out in the world, you're kinda polluting. So Instead I found a Jewish farm in upstate New York that is trying to create a sustainable irrigation system in order to save soil and water, and they also teach anyone who works on the farm with them Yiddish. This resonated with me so I decided wtf I'd rather do something good than just let a balloon fly away and land in some tree. So that's what I did.
Idk I might try to find some alternative that doesn't like pollute shit lol

This is illegal in many places, and bad for wildlife!
The one bright spot I the middle of the dark, night sky.
Not only did I put a note on a balloon, but I also used this as a topic for a photo: Last Night On Earth.

When Cheryl and I lead youth group at Pastor Rei's Church. Sent our hopes, desires, dreams, and goals to God.

Balloons have been bought and one already blown up for curiosity's sake ;) I got yellow pearl balloons just for fun. Will photograph and share when I actually do this one.
I did this 5/6/13 and it was surprisingly fun. The note on it said, "But overcome space and all we have left is Here. Overcome time, and all we have left is Now." It is a quote from Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach.

Today was my best friend's birthday. I wrote a note to her and released it with balloons. R.I.P.
The boys and I wrote birthday wishes to GG. We bought two balloons and tied them together. In the chaos of life and not having time to go elsewhere to let them go. We did it in the backyard, where we have many trees. There was no wind and I positioned us as far away from trees as possible. The boys let them go and a wind picked up. The balloons and notes are in one of our trees. Jack and I were devastated. Although this goal is "complete" it was a total fail....
