MAKE ART.

BREAK A RECORD. 

RAISE MONEY.

HELP PEOPLE AFFECTED BY COVID.

This global virus may have stopped the world in its tracks but even with millions in isolation, we can still unite and support the most vulnerable in our communities.

On 21st May at 4pm, World Book Day author and illustrator, Rob Biddulph, will unite people around the world in an attempt to break the Guinness World Records title for the largest online art lesson ever. You will be able to create art and donate to fight against Covid-19! 

WHY DONATE WITH US?

Many charities are extraordinarily effective at delivering change. But do you know which make the biggest difference during a global health crisis? 

We’ve teamed up with Founders Pledge, world-renowned charity experts to help us assess who and where needs your support the most. 

By donating, you will help stop the spread of the virus, but most importantly - provide support to those affected in different parts of the world. 

We need to secure a healthy future for all, and make sure the next generation is better protected against future pandemics.

RAISE MONEY AND HELP PEOPLE AFFECTED BY COVID-19

Health systems and healthcare providers are under greater pressure. Many of the people who will be hit hardest by the effects of Covid-19 will be those already neglected. 

With so many people affected, our priority was to find a clear approach towards distribution of funding, and invest in the most impactful programmes. To help those forgotten.

To do so, Founders Pledge assessed the effectiveness of a number of programmes around the world, and selected organisations that will help save lives now and in the future.

YOUR DONATION

Your donation will support transparent, cost-effective charities which are addressing issues such as growing poverty and increases in severe depressive disorder, made much more acute by the pandemic and the global lock-down.

You will also contribute towards ongoing research into Covid-19, and ways in which we can stop it from happening again. 

STOP. SUPPORT. PREVENT.

Thank you for considering contributing towards the most impactful aid programmes. Together we are fighting for great things. 

STOP THE SPREAD

  • Better understand the pandemic and mitigate its negative effects now and for future generations with Combating COVID-19 Fund

SUPPORT THOSE SUFFERING

  • Provide relief for someone suffering from severe depressive disorder and protecting the mental health of our emergency services with Action for Happiness and Mind
