Donating 10% of original artwork sold in October to Amnesty International – Refugees

Millions of people around the world are fleeing their homelands to escape war, genocide, torture and persecution. Most recently the Australian Government has stepped up to save the lives of 12,000 people escaping war in Syria.

During the month of October I’ll be donating 10% of the proceeds from my original artwork sold to Amnesty International, a global movement that works to uphold the rights of people seeking asylum across the world.  Amnesty uses funding to place researchers on the ground in conflict areas to expose human rights violations, lobby governments, corporations and international bodies to champion human rights, fund campaigning in Australia to dispel myths about refugees and more!

In October, we’ll be launching a new crisis campaign aimed at increasing international pressure on the Syrian Government and other non-state actors to significantly reduce the number of civilian casualties and improve humanitarian access into Syria. Join Amnesty activists across the globe in the coming months in calling for real action on Syria! –
