I am very happy to take part in this beautiful project, with so many artist I admire! We draw and help animals. What a great plan, right? :)
The Art of Compassion Project is a collective art project involving vegan artists from all around the world. It's our aim to raise funds through various art projects and donate 100% of the profits to vegan non-profit organisations, while opening the minds and hearts of people to animals and the global benefits of veganism.
The project was founded and is run by Leigh Sanders (Catalonia, NE Spain). The Art of Compassion Project came to life at the beginning of 2015 as an idea for an art book to raise money for Veganuary. There was such an incredibly overwhelming response from vegan artists worldwide to get involved that the initial idea for a book just grew and grew into what is now an ongoing 'project'.
My image for the calendar is called 'Open your heart to Empathy' .
Do you remember when you were a kid and felt so much love for all animals? And then we became adults ad we forgot that and became addicted to social and cultural norms of what is good and what is bad without questioning it. We need to open our hearts and let empathy, caring and love envelop our hearts. It is so urgent...Animals are sentient beings like us humans are. They feel and they want to live. Once our heart is open we can make this world a better place to live in!
