Art for Haiti

(Here’s a message from Merlin, the charity for which I am a Trustee, and which is doing sterling, amazing, brilliant work on the ground in Haiti).

The Haiti earthquake has, as you will be aware,  generated a ground swell of support from every corner of society.   Six British artists and Giles Baker-Smith of GBS Fine Art have come together to donate six fantastic pieces to raise funds for Merlin’s work in Haiti. With five pieces available for individuals, this unique online fundraising appeal and prize draw, limited to 100 tickets, provides you with a 1 in 20 chance of winning a piece of art.  And for corporations we have one larger installation, which would sit well in a corporate setting.  Tickets for this piece are £500, with only 20 tickets available.  All the pieces, valued between £1,500 and £6,500, are on offer today, so please read on for details of how to enter the prize draw and make your donation to Merlin’s emergency response in Haiti.  Both draws are a great opportunity to support the Haiti Appeal and have the chance of winning some great art! Do pass this on to anyone who may be interested.

For Individuals: To enter the prize draw click this dedicated link and make a minimum recommended donation of £100*

For Corporates: To purchase one of only 20 tickets click here and enter today.

The artists in question are: Sean Fairman, who has provided the corporate piece; Emily Allchurch; Veronica Bailey (and in relation to her piece, by kind donation of Coutts & Co); Susannah Baker-Smith; and Robert Davies.  Merlin extends a huge thank you to these artists and to Giles Baker-Smith who initiated this appeal.
