You may still be wondering why I’m bombarding you with Auction for Action information. I’ve been working with the UNICEF team on this for months. Prior to this, I’ve helped them educate moms all over the country on maternal health, mortality and breastfeeding. This time, I want to help UNICEF raise awareness and funds for all their other goals: providing children with health care, access to safe water and sanitation, education, and protection from violence, abuse and exploitation. I thought the best way I could contribute is by extending the goodwill of my friends… most of whom happen to be design superstars. And I know you, my readers are very much into design, art, style and fashion.
Here are some of the paintings donated by top artists for Auction for Action.
UNICEF focuses on reaching the poorest, most disadvantaged families in the Philippines, and through our partners we work and advocate to ensure children grow up healthy, go to school, are protected from harm and develop to reach their full potential. UNICEF relies entirely on voluntary donations from individuals like yourself (as well as corporations and governments) to fund its programmes for children.
There are more items up for bidding, this is just a preview. The complete catalog will be available online for viewing at Auction for Action goes live in eBay.ph/unicef on May 25, 2011. Counting on you to please spread the word.
