Foto is Diplomat at Soccer Match in India

Oct 29, 2017   //   Foto, India  //  Comments Off on Foto is Diplomat at Soccer Match in India


Longtime phoDOGrapher from India, Chinmoy Majumdar is always looking for clever ways to promote diplomacy with DogMeetsWorld! Recently he shared this story:

Even though security was extremely tight, I decided to bring Foto (the little dog mascot) with me to watch the FIFA World Cup Match (Chile Vs. England) at Vivekananda Uvabharati Stadium in Salt Lake, Kolkata. FIFA U-17 World Cup was taking place and being broadcasted around the world. No one was allowed to take anything except mobile phone and wallet. But FIFA security personal allowed me to take mascot dog with me after my explanations on diplomacy. At the stadium entrance gate one of our national TV channels NDTV, had a reporter who saw Foto was interested to do a spot interview to learn why I had this stuffed dog with me. I described the significance of our photo diplomacy and described Foto as the mascot of Dog Meets World. It was a wonderful experience explaining how Foto is a mascot of good luck, love and friendship just before the soccer match started. Inside the stadium fans surrounded me and were asking me about Foto and excited after knowing the significance of the project.

Thank you Chinmoy for always introducing Foto and Dog Meets World to others and sharing your enthusiasm for connecting people through peace and love.20171008_182245-1

The December issue of Dog Fancy Magazine, the world’s most widely read dog magazine, is highlighting our photo diplomacy project! As Dog Fancy is the comprehensive resources for all things dog, it makes sense to see an article (page 12) under FUN DOG about how Dog Meets World is using Foto, our small stuffed dog to meet and greet, set the stage, and help fetch photos for kids and families in need around the world. Foto is the mascot, the ice-breaker, posing buddy, symbol of peace and love (check out the paw prints) and unifier of all the photos. Read our story and get involved!
