About Our Auction
Artists around the world have donated work AND shipping to raise awareness of the importance of global education for girls and to highlight the dangers many girls face, as illustrated by the recent kidnapping of nearly 300 students in Nigeria. All proceeds will be donated to http://girlrising.com/, an organization that uses the power of storytelling, leveraged through partnerships, to share the simple truth that educating girls can transform societies.
About Artists Give Back
We are a loosely formed group for creatives dedicated to making the world better, one piece of art at a time.
