Raising funds for UNICEF
Shirley Maclaine said, “I don’t think there is difference really between what you feel you have to do in your heart, and success. They are inseparable.” If she is right, the evening of the opening of my first solo exhibition was a big success.
Two of my dreams came true: one is holding a solo exhibition, and the other is raising funds for a good cause through the exhibition. This time, we raised AUD 175 for UNICEF. People who gathered the opening party showed their generousity and helped raising funds for welfare of children. I always wished to contribute people with limited / no access to safe drinking water through my work and exhibition. I would like to donate the funds for Water and Sanitation Appeal and thank those who came to the party, donated for the funds, and those who helped me to organize and set up the exhibition in such a short time.
The photo is the prize of the raffle for the funds. This Conch was modeled after a tiny conch that I found at the beach where I went with my family when I was a small child. The work carries my happy childhood memory. I hope this contribution which so many people participated will bring happiness to children of the world, too.
