Artists for a Cure
I'm honored to be one of the 25 artists participating in this video project for the Matt LeBlanc Art for Life Campaign. Matt began this campaign last year to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the Tree of Hope Campaign, an annual event by the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont Hospital Foundation in Moncton. The campaign was a huge success, and Matt raised a grand total of $38,000 for the foundation.
As a way to kick off the awareness effort this year, Matt went to fellow artists for some help and put together an online video with 24 other artists from North America and as far away as Australia. The idea is simple -- each artist answers one question: Why do you paint? The video is a collection of answers from these artists.
The video ends with a powerful message:
Painting is life.
We love to paint and we love life.
We are all artists and we are all for finding a cure for cancer.
