Young One Family ‘Paint a Difference’ in Shoreditch

On Thursday 26th November 2015 the newly-formed Young One Family committee held their first charity fundraiser ‘Painting a Difference’ in a beautifully refined twin railway tunnel in Shoreditch.

The charity, which supports Israeli victims of terror, attracted 230 guests and raised over £10,000 which will go directly towards funding ‘Healing Arts Kits’ which are designed to reduce PTSD in children following terror attacks in Israel.

10 graffiti artists from Artists4Israel, an international network of Israel advocates who designed the Arts Kits, were flown over to the UK for the event and were given carte blanche to produce pieces of art for and on the night around the theme of overcoming terror through art. This included a giant billboard canvas outside the venue and all pieces were on sale, with proceeds going towards funding the Healing Arts Kits.

There was a sophisticated and buoyant atmosphere throughout the night due to the music, cocktails and canapes which were available, together with the inspiring art.

Midway through the evening, Young One Family chairman Zak Kanter presented a promotional video and addressed the crowd, as did Craig Dershowitz, Artists4Israel Executive Director, who expanded on the positive impact which the Healing Arts Kits are currently having in Israel.

Attendees were also given the option of donating further for the chance to be included in a raffle, the prizes for which are to be announced this week.
