Refugees. What do you think of when you hear this word?
To me, the word represented a situation too big to think about. I felt sorry for them and looked away because I didn’t know where to start…
Jane Best, Executive Director of Refugees International Japan, shared success stories and encouraged me to have fun fundraising. So I did!
I created a painting about trust (we all put our trust in something) for their annual fundraiser. The painting sold on the night and we've made fine art prints of the painting to continue the FUNdraising. 20% of proceeds to RIJ and information here:
