It’s no secret I want to put an end to child slavery.
I can’t imagine my children being ripped from my arms to work 14 hours a day or worse, to become a sex slave. Yet this is what is happening to children in Cambodia every day.
This is why I’m proud to be hosting the Buy Art Not Kids Showcase. ‘Buy Art Not Kids’ is an art auction fundraiser in support of Ratanak International. Ratanak is a Canadian charity that rescues and rehabilitates child sex trafficking victims in Cambodia.
I’ll be hosting the evening which will feature a silent and live auction, raffle prizes, and live music. While I’m hosting, you’ll be able to sip on wine and nibble on refreshments and bid on original pieces of art work by renowned artists as well as original pieces by students at Havergal College.
The money raised will help support rescue and rehabilitation homes to give exploited children a safe haven, teach them life skills to become productive adults, and reach out to at risk kids giving them opportunities to go to school and receive medical care.
Come join me for this event with meaning on April 18th at Havergal College in North York. You may even find some gorgeous works of art.
Tickets are $75 and you can purchase them here.
