Thank you for raising over $43,000 for KidPower

Thank you to everyone that purchased one of the recent timed edition prints of “Jay” from Giorgiko. Your help means so much and KidPower will be able to do some great things with the funds we all raised together.

We ended up selling 488 prints and raising over $43,000 for KidPower.

A message from Giorgiko :

We are ecstatic to announce that our fundraiser with Thinkspace raised over $43K for KidPower International. In a 72-hour period, we sold 488 timed-edition prints of our painting “Jay”.  We want to thank everyone who shared about the fundraiser and purchased prints with hearts of support and generosity towards this good cause.  In a time when we are surrounded by such incredible diversity, our survival as a people is dependent on loving one another. We believe KidPower teaches children this very important message.

We conducted this fundraiser in light of violent events occuring in our nation.  We chose to support KidPower as an investment into the future of our society and because of KidPower’s positive message of teaching skills to prevent and stop bullying, harassment, violence, and other forms of harm.  This fundraiser comes at a time when KidPower has been unable to generate income from in-person workshops due to the pandemic, and we are happy to help bolster their organization during these crucial times.

About “Jay”

“Jay” depicts two characters, Wonder and Jay, as they look out at the scene before them.  Jay can see what Wonder cannot and is troubled.  In empathy and compassion, Wonder stands by his side.  They stand together as two different people sharing pain, joy, and a journey.  We hope this image can serve as a reminder of standing with those who are different from us, especially during perilous times.

Special fundraiser edition from Giorgiko

In light of the recent violence we are seeing in our world, we are offering a special 12 x 12 inch (30 x 30 cm) timed edition print of “Jay” to support KidPower in teaching kids and adults the skills to prevent and stop bullying, harassment and violence through creating a culture of care and respect.

100% of the profits will be donated to KidPower.

The duo’s painting “Jay” depicts two characters, Wonder and Jay, as they look out at the scene before them.  Jay can see what Wonder cannot and is troubled.  In empathy and compassion, Wonder stands by his side. They stand together as two different people sharing pain, joy, and a journey.

Darren and Trish of Giorgiko are reminded of the story of “The Good Samaritan” that Jesus tells when asked, “Who is the neighbor we should be loving?” Jesus tells the story of someone who is robbed, beaten, and left for dead.  Two people of the same culture and creed pass by without doing anything.  But someone of a different culture and creed stops to help.  This “Good Samaritan” tends to the beaten person’s wounds and also provides for his recovery.  Jesus challenges listeners to see that the “neighbor” we are to love is not just the one who looks like us, or believes like us, but rather the one who is in need.

In a time where we are surrounded by such incredible diversity, we must love our neighbor.  Our survival as a people is dependent on love.

The artists selected to donate to KidPower, because they really love their positive message and investment into the future of our society (kids) by teaching them to love one another.

The “Jay” edition will be available for 72 hours on the Thinkspace Webshop from Friday, April 2 at 9 am until Monday, April 6 at 9 am Pacific Time. The edition size will be based on the number of prints ordered during this 72 hour sale period. All prints will be numbered based on this. The edition will then be printed by Static Medium, signed by the duo, and shipped sometime in late May.
