ABOUT OUR CAUSE
A Million Dreams - Charity Art Auction In Association With Rotary Club of Singapore With Award-winning And Upcoming Artists
In the words of Winston Churchill: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Giving is about making a difference – to real people with real lives and real-life stories. These troubled times across the globe changed the perception of need and a sense of community. It allowed us to appreciate and evaluate the very fundamentals of our existence. So long as the sun rises, for most people, this means another chance to re-emerge and grow stronger, but this is not the case for many abandoned children and orphans in developing countries across Asia and beyond due to many charity initiatives being stalled or closed down as an aftermath of the pandemic (ap. 45%, according to the UK Institute of Fundraising). What this means to the orphanage houses and shelters for children is a struggle for survival in both short and long-term: food, healthcare, elementary hygiene, and education.
As many of us reappraise our lives, as is often the case in times of crisis such as this, we find ourselves wanting to do our bit and leave our mark as our contribution to humanity and you are invited to join us and help us make a greater impact. This is our chance to bring to life the word ‘kind’ inherent in ‘humankind’.
Join us in our endeavor to open our hearts along with the volunteers who have come together to create a unique charity art auction "A Million Dreams" to raise funds for orphanages and shelters for abandoned and street children in Indonesia, Malaysia, and India, who are struggling more than ever.
"A Million Dreams" charity art auction is a product of widespread initiative with efforts across the board from donating artists, volunteers, and partnering organizations. Among the artists supporting this cause are both well-established, award-winning as well as gifted young painters originally from Singapore, India, Indonesia, France, Vietnam, Belgium, New Zealand, and the US, namely: Gloria Keh, Aarti Bartake, Jennifer Chalklen, Nasrine Chaoui, Gabriel Dufourcq, Shilpa Viswanathan Iyer, Jan Larsen, Rajul Shah, Yip Yew Chong, The Next Most Famous Artist, Wayan Paramartha, Diah Yulianti, Priya Daniel, Daniel Peh, Pronto Pixel, Made Wiguna Valasara, Bang Sy Truc, Prashansa Daga and Genevieve Ang. The family of late Low Hai Hong, a well-known Singaporean artist originally from Indonesia, has also graciously donated two of his artworks for this great cause.
We thank each donating artist for their trust, dedication, and generous gesture of goodwill.
All funds raised at the art auction will be transferred to the orphanage houses and shelters for abandoned and street children in Indonesia, Malaysia, and India through the registered charity network of the Rotary Club of Singapore.
The auction will take place at Maduro Singapore in the form of a closed-door event with no minimum bid.
Surrounded by like-minded charitable hearts, the attendees will have a chance to make a difference, enjoy impeccable hospitality, a specially curated menu set against the backdrop of soft jazz, promising to be a memorable evening.
