An adorable collection of 29 painting prints by children of Yari Foundation was put up for auction during the event. Furthermore, 200 painting prints were also displayed at the gallery. The auction drew much attention and the guests showed great interest. The sale from the auction was 3,700 CAD (26,170SEK).
One of the paintings in the collection showing a beautiful landscape scenery was bought by the audience collectively for 410 CAD (2,900SEK) and donated back to Yari Foundation. The displayed paintings also collectively raised 265 CAD (1,880SEK). The whole event generated a total of 5,500CAD (38,900SEK).
Monthly sponsorships are a great way of having an impact. These consistent donations, starting as low as 25 CAD a month, provide a stable way for Yari and student families to plan the education. At least four generous philanthropists instantly became a monthly sponsor to a child.
