This past year, Aubrey Graham, Ryan Cooley, Miriam McDonald, Andrea Lewis and Mike Lobel from Degrassi did paintings for the Kidney Foundation’s “A Brush of Hope” campaign. I thought that you might like to know that these paintings will soon go on Ebay, with all proceeds going to kidney research. Research done in Canada is important not only to Canadians, but to ALL people suffering from kidney disease because advancements of this kind are soon shared worldwide.
The masterpieces will go on Ebay on Nov 2 and will be open to bidding until Nov 12. About 100 other celebrities from across Canada are participating, including ballerina Karen Kain, Ben Kowalewics from Billy Talent and RUSH guitarist Alex Lifeson. In addition, the hockey world is well represented with, Cassie Campbell, Paul Henderson and Scott Stevens and more all creating paintings to help fight kidney disease.
Please let Degrassi fans know that these painting will be available for bidding on Ebay beginning Nov 2. Just type “Kidney Foundation” or the name of the artist to find the paintings or go to the charity section of EBAY.ca.
If you want to see who all is taking part and get a preview of some of the paintings (some just came in so they are not on the site just yet, but will be soon), go to http://www.kidney.on.ca/HUHO_special_events_brushofhope/
