Welcome to PortraitsdUnion
PortraitsdUnion doesn’t sell anything; we don’t advocate anything either; we are not affiliated to any organization; we are just here for you.
So what do we do?
The few people who created this site, believe that by sharing real life testimonies of how people grew up, of who helped them do so, and how they themselves turned to care for others, from their close ones to complete strangers, we can all recognize the benevolent interactions that we all benefit from without sometimes realizing how plentiful and important they are.
People care and are cared for, but this often remains unspoken. We believe that everyone's life is made richer, or simply possible, by the multiple exchanges through which we give and receive what enables us to grow and live.
On this Website, we host the testimonies of those people who have trusted us, and answered our simple questions to tell you how these exchanges are happening for them, what influences them, and what they expect out of these interactions with their close ones, their friends, and the rest of society.
There are not many interviews, just a few of them, but they come from many places and tell very different and complementary stories. We hope that by reading one or a few of them, you will relate to some of their experiences and appreciate their similarities as well as their differences.
We slowly, but continuously add more interviews as new people trust us and as we can find the time and the resources to build up the site.
Thank you for coming here. We wish you a great reading.
