In which I found out charity stuff can be difficult and tough, but in the end whatever happens is okay in the end, because it’s for a good cause.
So it’s happening! This Saturday I’m doing a 24 hour Art Livestream to help raise funds for charity. All the proceeds go to Pencils of Promise, an organisation dedicated to building schools for children around the world that haven’t got access to education.
Art is everything to me. It’s my life, my career, my passion, the thing that keeps me up at night. I live and breathe it everyday. My first drawing was a stick figure family portrait that I drew in my Dad’s office when he was working overtime. I was five years old. That was the earliest I remember picking up a pencil and drawing.
Some kids don’t even know the fun and creative magic of drawing because they don’t have access to a good education in their country. And thinking of all those kids that could have turned and transformed into amazing artists and given their creative spark to the world really makes me want to do something. I want to help even if it’s just one kid get a good education and be able to have the opportunity to know what the magic of drawing and painting is.
Please support me if you can by donating to the fundraiser page! (Over here)(or this link) Even if it’s a dollar, it’s the thought that counts more. All for a good cause yay! Even if it’s $1 every cent makes a difference. Just $25 allows Pencils of Promise to give a child access to education for one year. So together with your support, we’ll have the opportunity to make someone’s life better!
The Stream will start 12pm on Valentine’s Day, and will go ’til 12pm the next day! (24 hours!) The stream will begin on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IveKMPCBpUM
As well as this I’m doing a giveaway where a randomly picked donator will receive a Free Signed Print of Forest Temple (the first painting in the Zelda series I’m doing)! It’ll be postage paid too. To enter to be able to win it, all you have to do is donate any amount to the charity page and that’s it (oh and also with your name, so I can comment and tell you that you’ve won!)
I hope you can donate, even if it’s a little it goes a long way and shows that we can make a difference (even if it’s by giving up one cup of coffee for the day). Otherwise thanks guys! And looking forward to seeing you at the stream! 😀
