As many of you may know, mental health means an awful lot me. I’m someone who has battled with his mental state for a majority of his life and I want to help others realise just how important it is. That’s why for this years mental health week I’m dropping a group project called “Piece of Mind” [Or POM for short]
So what is POM?
No, it isn’t that bobble on the top of a woolly hat. PoM is short for Piece of Mind (because everyone likes puns, right?), a charity art sale originally envisioned by the artist Haydn Gardner.
Inspired by the UK’s Mental Health Week, this year Haydn wanted to go beyond his annual blog post. He gathered together a great group of artists who were willing to help him raise some money for the charity “Mind” and made this here online store to sell their artwork.
You’ll be sure to find something you like with the diverse collection of unique artwork, and a percentage of each sale gets donated to charity. This number varies from artist to artist depending on production costs and other such factors. We need to care for our artists too!
The goal is simple. To raise as much money as we can for Mind and spread awareness for mental health while filling the world with beautiful art. Let’s give people some peace of mind.
“Piece of Mind” will continue through to the 2nd of June and as the first week of the event has already dropped me and my artist friends have already raised over £150 for charity! Follow the link below to check out all the work available and lets raise some money for mental health!
