For the fifth anniversary (May 12th) of the Sichuan Earthquake in China, Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei calls for people to send in drawings and pictures of flowers. The earthquake five years ago caused nearly 70,000 deaths, of which around 10,000 were children, and left millions homeless. Original tweet from @aiww:

汶川地震五周年快到了。发给我们关于鲜花的图案,你画的、孩子画的、你喜欢的,我制作后发给大家。尊重生命,拒绝遗忘。huaduo512@gmail.com

Translation:

The fifth anniversary of Wenchuan (Sichuan) earthquake is approaching. Send us flower themed pictures, ones which you drew, your children drew, or you like. I will send them to everyone after editing. Respect life, refuse to forget. huaduo512@gmail.com

Artists! Fandoms! Everyone! Please join this project! We do not yet know what Ai plans to do with the pictures, but it’s likely he will make them into an art piece in memory of the victims of the earthquake. A simple picture of a simple flower is enough, there are no boundaries, there are no requirements. Send your flower to huaduo512@gmail.com, or help spread the word! Thank you.
