Dear Member of the New 7 Wonders Society,
Dear Citizen of the World,

Thank you for your response and we are acting on your suggestion.

In the meantime, I would like to reaffirm that the aim of our
balloting is not to replace the list of the original 7 Wonders
of the World but to revive after over 2000 years the spirit of
the great architectural and engineering achievements chosen by
Philon of Byzantium around 200 BC.

With this in mind, proposals such as the Gizeh pyramids in Egypt,
the Internet itself, the MIR space station, the bay of Rio de
Janeiro and so on, do not really fit into the central theme.
These ideas will be saved for future world voting projects such
as the 7 Technical Wonders and the 7 Wonders of Nature.

I am taking the opportunity of the launch of the redesigned and
upgraded new website (please click on to
address a personal word to you: For more than two years now,
this unique global voting initiative has been financed by myself,
the founder of N7W, and some private individuals who believe in
the value of this project. So far we have spent more than half a
million Euros (almost the same amount in Dollars). Encouraged by
the universal acceptance of this mission, I would like to see
this platform develop further as a totally independent and truly
democratic effort to establish a new form of global community.
For this reason I invite everyone to make a contribution by
supporting this effort with a donation of the equivalent of
?/US$ 10.00 or more.

All those who participate with a donation at this stage will
become official life-long patrons of the New 7 Wonders of the World.
Each one will receive a certificate from N7W and be recognized as
a patron with his or her name “engraved” in our commemorative wall
on the N7W website.

Once again, I thank you for your time and consideration and the
opportunity to realize this vision together.

Sincere regards

Bernard Weber
Founder New 7 Wonders Society & Foundation

Of course, that’s no reason not to keep on voting 🙂
