Baroness’ 30 Customs x 30 Friends Charity Auction

The Blot’s a sucker for a good cause, so I wanted to pass along the details of this charity auction put together by Kidrobot’s Toy Baroness. The following press release is from the Baroness herself:

Baroness Presents 30 Customs x 30 Friends - An Auction to Benefit the Children of Cambodia
30 Customs by 30 Artists: An Auction to Benefit the Children of Cambodia is the first step in trying to help the children that have impacted my life. After traveling to Cambodia last year I fell in love with the people of that country. Every day I think about the amazing children I met and how I could help them. Most of these children lack the necessities of food, clothing, shoes, and transportation. Many can't even afford the pencils and notebooks they need to attend school. So instead of attending class they sell trinkets at the temples in order to survive.

I have reached out to 30 of my friends and asked them to create a custom toy specifically for this auction. Every cent from the sale of these customs will go directly to help the children I have met in Cambodia. With the help of people that I have met in Cambodia, I will be delivering clothing, shoes, books, paper, pens, and bicycles to children of Siem Reap villages. It has been a passion and a dream of mine to use art as a way of helping children and communities all over the World, and I am excited about this first step.
