BRIGHTENING THE WORLD, ONE PIECE OF ART AT A TIME
We aim to create meaningful change and to grow the culture of charity in the world through the love of art.
We bring artists, art buyers and charities together to promote art and to grow the culture of charity.
We redefine, broaden and streamline the art fundraising virtuous circle.
Generating endless funding opportunities for charities, unique visibility to artists, a boundless inventory to art buyers, and creating overall everlasting good for society.
CONNECTING ART WITH THE 2030 UN SDGs
By placing art as a catalyst for social impact, we empower charities to work towards the defining challenges of our time (2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals).
A unique virtuous circle
Born through our founder's personal experience, both as a photographer and a charity board member, we have bridged the gap between artists, art buyers and charities by creating a unique charitable art marketplace.
The artists submit their art pieces, set the price and can either give 100% or 50% of the income to their charity of choice. Art lovers can filter search through the marketplace and find their favourite pieces while supporting the greater community.
