A Portrait for the children of Brazil Project  

Over 40% of Brazilian Children up to the age of 2 suffer from malnutrition.

55 Million Brazilians live on £48 or less per month, meaning a third of the population live on less than £1 a day.

The average income of 10% of the population is 32 times higher than that of the poorest 40%!

1 in 27 children die before the age of 5 compared to one in 143 in the UK. In a country plagued by poverty, violence and social exclusion, urban youth bear the brunt of hardship. UNICEF estimates over 450,000 children are orphaned, abandoned or without contact with their parents.

Ten years ago ABC Trust was founded to help these poor and hungry children. Now the lives of up to 1000 children are improved every week.

The aim of this project is to raise funds for the ABC Trust.

The ABC Trust has provided us with a licensed recent photograph of Brian May by Jill Furmanovsky which we have digitally divided up into segments. Each segment has been given to twelve of our Artists. Each Artist has painted their segment in their own style and returned it to us, which we digitally put each segment together to form the original picture, resulting in the finest quality canvas prints, beautifully framed. We will sell this limited run on this site.

A signed limited edition will be auctioned off by Cooper Owen Auctioneers in April of 2006 (date to be announced.) All of the profits received on the sale of this print will be donated to ABC Trust. This project will expand to include exhibitions and promotions to further sales of this limited edition run to provide added funding for the children of Brazil.
It is our intention that ABC Trust receive all of the profits from this project.


Method of Payment: Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, as well as electronic checks, debit cards, and PayPal account balances.

A warm Thank You from Oakapple Art and ABC Trust to support this fundraising initiative.
