The initiative arose from a graphic arts expert which has a great love for the Virgin Mary and appreciation for good urban planning taste. Together with a friend, they decided to unite both ideals and let Ella do the most important things: to unite the family, the neighbors, to become a friend to her children, to beautify the city....

The project is called #TheVirginAllSides. It offers something that is not very common: giving more than you receive. Le they give an image of Our Lady to the person who wants it for his or her home. and, at the same time commit to remodeling a wall or fence in poor condition to place another image of the Virgin there. They have no financial losses; there are donors who collaborate to cover the costs of beautifying the streets and fences.

The initiative is successful. To date 420 images of the Virgin have been placed; 210 in houses and another 210 on the walls of the city.of a neighborhood or village.
