My action on the Music for Life website, November 2015
I have decided to raise money for WAI-NOT, a Flemish organisation that provides a safe internet environment for people with a cognitive disability. WAI-NOT has been supporting my PhD and implements our latest pictograph translation tools on their website. I think the staff is really friendly and helpful, and it's awesome that they are trying to stimulate e-inclusion for people with disabilities, so I wanted to do something for them! :D So, what's the big idea? If you have been reading my blog, you might know that I have been surprising friends with customised pencil sketches. This time, people can actually order a drawing of themselves, their family, or their pet in exchange for money. Of course, this money will be donated to WAI-NOT by the end of my campaign.
My Facebook page, November 2015
First things first, I registered my action on the Music for Life website and created a Facebook page for my campaign. My Facebook page contains instructions on how to order a drawing, so please check it out if you're interested! :D I still got plenty of time to finish even more orders and I would be really happy to donate a fair amount of money to WAI-NOT. So far, I have finished 13 portraits, and raised about 300 euros. I guess that's not bad for a freelance artist. I still got some work to do, so I might actually set a new goal! 500 euros would be really cool. :D Guys, please help me out!
Studio Brussel called me last week to talk about my project. I did not expect that and almost fell off my office chair. They seemed happy with the whole idea behind my project and asked me if I would like to visit the Music for Life studio during the big event. I think it would be a very good idea to say hi and tell people about WAI-NOT on the radio. :)
I'm in need of more requests at the moment (or maybe I worked a bit too hard), but I'm hoping to update you again soon. Until then, see you around!
