Enhance for a Chance
There’s a million different ways to use your money right now, but we’re asking you to help us provide critical medication to cancer patients in Sri Lanka. This call is to raise funds to provide patients with a lifesaving drug known as filgen, which helps to boost patients’ immune systems after undergoing chemotherapy. This drug, which helps the patient have a fighting chance for positive outcomes and survival, is currently in short supply due to the current events. In response to an urgent call from the oncologists in Sri Lanka for funds to keep pace, two of our supporters Dr. Preethi & Gemunu Gunaratne have agreed to match the amount we raise through this fundraiser by up to $10,000!
Please help us help them by contributing to our goal of providing 1,500 treatments ($30,000 at $20/treatment) in this time of critical need!
The Big Picture
“The Big Picture” is about showing that every little act is important and that people-no matter how old they are or what obstacles they have to overcome - can make a difference. This concept can be applied to people of all ages and helps to promote the mental wellbeing of a sick person. Simultaneously, this project helps to promote volunteerism as people can get involved in numerous ways regardless of their skills. The idea is to get a sick person who is coming to a clinic or is in a hospital involved in decorating the clinic/ward in order to give them a sense of ownership.
Together, we work with the patients to produce paintings where anything is possible (pink grass, orange skies, purple fences)! After everyone has contributed, I put some finishing touches and frame and donate the picture to the clinic/ hospital so the patients can see their work daily.
All paintings developed by this project are copyrighted to the Big Picture Project and are not the property of the patients or the volunteer artists. All original paintings will be donated and cannot be resold. All funds from sales of prints will be used 100% to cover costs of The Big Picture project or for a donation to another cause which will be clearly stated at the time of the sale.
