Fine Art Prints and the refugees cause
According to the UN Refugee Agency, every 1 minute 24 people are forced to flee their homes because of war or persecution.
In the first 53 days of 2017, at least 366 people died in the Mediterranean Sea trying to reach Europe.
The Refugee Crisis and Climate Change are probably the biggest issues of our time. We all must do something to help and that's why I will be donating 25% of each sale I make through my Prints shop to local organizations working to protect and resettle refugees in the US.
Printed on fine art paper and available in five different sizes, they will be shipped for free to anywhere in the United States. If you don' live here but still want to purchase yours and help creating a more just and compassionate society, please feel free to contact me here so we can arrange the best way to send you your print.
Ive been fortunate to live in four different continents (South America, Africa, Europe and Asia) and to travel to many different cultures. We are all the same. We might do things differently, but we are all just one. The richness of the world we are lucky to inhabit lies exactly in its diversity. I stand agains racism, xenophobia and any other form os discrimination. A better world is only possible if we built it together; not separated by walls.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” - Mark Twain
I couldn't agree more.
Let's work together towards a society where we can all thrive and achieve our dreams, regardless the God we believe in, the country where we come from or the people we feel attracted to. One might call this an utopia, but like Eduardo Galeano once said:
“Utopia is on the horizon. I move two steps closer; it moves two steps further away. I walk another ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps further away. As much as I may walk, I'll never reach it. So what's the point of utopia? The point is this: to keep walking.”
I will be back here soon.
