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.
“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.
