Love Letters From Crete
Yiasas... Ela...Come explore the island of Crete in Greece.
Welcome to our latest edition of Love Letters From Crete
Let's look back over the year...
2011 has been a difficult year for Greece. All the world is watching as the global financial crisis and Greece's economic troubles deepen. The video below is thought-provoking and dispels some myths about Greece and her economy.
In this season of excess, it is best to think of those less fortunate than ourselves, both in Greece and around the world, especially charities who depend on our generosity and are feeling the economic strain upon an already tight budget. We urge you to search your soul and make a donation to one of the worthwhile charities below.
2011 has been a busy year for We Love Crete. We have made many additions and changes to the website. We thank all our loyal readers for their interest, stories, comments and questions. Here are some of the newest pages – informing and welcoming you to Crete and Greece.
Let's look forward to 2012. If you love Crete, and Greece, quick! choose an island for your next holiday! and help Greece move forward!
We send you all the very best of the season, and wish you and your family a wonderful 2012 filled with love, laughter and travel in Crete!

History of Crete
Charity for Disadvantaged Kids
Many of us know how fulfilling and life-affirming a beach holiday can be. Sadly, some kids have never experienced this simple pleasure. Some have never seen the sea. Crete for Life has been providing beach holidays for disadvantaged kids for many years. The results are just so heart-warming; Olimpia and her team need lots of help to keep up this great work. www.creteforlife.com
Sea Turtle Conservation Projects
Mediterranean turtles are some of the most endangered in the world. The Archelon Sea Turtle Protection Society is based in Athens and has been organising volunteer projects in different parts of Greece, including Crete, for many years. www.archelon.com
Help The Donkeys
This is a chance to help donkeys who have suffered and the humans who care for them. In beautiful rural Crete, the stories of the donkeys and those helping them will warm your heart and make you want to 'walk with donkeys'.
Suzanne, Alistair and the donkeys can be found near the village of Anatoli in Lassithi, in eastern Crete. This is a real experience of authentic Crete, yet is only minutes away from beautiful beaches and the cosmopolitan town of Agios Nikolaos. This is a small family-run operation and very grass roots (excuse the pun). They can organise accommodation in a nearby village. Donations can be made through the website. www.walkwithdonkeys.com
