Art for Aid

Anyone who’s traveled in the 3rd world can’t help but be affected by seeing the conditions a large chunk of the world’s population lives in.

In Peru, I saw people living in accommodation not much better than what the working dogs on my parents’ farm used to live in, and these people were by no means the worst off in their country. Yet they do not feel the world owes them anything – they get on with making the most they can of their lives.

When things like natural disasters, disease, or armed conflict interfere with their lives, it makes survival so much harder for them. This group, Art for Aid, which I’m co-founding with Elaine Stevenson and Melinda Kerr is now accepting works from people willing to donate some or all of their proceeds to charitable organisations that seek to ease the burden carried by those in the 3rd world.
