Just under two weeks ago, we announced the Illustrators for War Child project, an illustrator charity auction organised by Leigh Hodgkinson, featuring over 90 lots from more than 50 different illustrators, to raise money for War Child, a London-based charity that provides life-changing support to the most vulnerable children whose families, communities and schools have been torn apart by war.
The auctions ended earlier this week, and we’re thrilled to say that they raised almost £6,000 in total for War Child – a fantastic achievement by Leigh, made possible by the incredible generosity of the illustrators who donated such wonderful pieces, and all of the people who bid for them.
So thank you very much to Leigh, for organising this amazing project, and to ALL of the illustrators involved – and if you’re on the lucky bidders who’s won an original piece of artwork or a beautiful signed print, thank you, too, and congratulations!
If you missed out on the auction, it’s not too late to donate to War Child anyway to help support the vital work they do across the world. You can find out more about them here, and donate here.
