Singapore Art Wall a catalyst for bigger goals

Early in 2014 WATG Singapore embarked on a program to help those in the office with hidden talent to showcase their craft. The “Art Wall” was born, and under the leadership of Roger Gaspar and Haryady, the office has seen the artistic works of many of WATG’s hidden talent. At the end of each artists’ show, all artwork were sold with 100% of the proceeds going to charity. To date, the Art Wall raised over $3,000 for charity.

Most recently Cheryl Heap took up the challenge of showcasing her Instagram travel doodles. What started as a presentation of art turned into a catalyst for much bigger ambitions. Cheryl discovered a charity called Pencils of Promise that built over 200 schools in underprivileged communities around the world. She decided to take up the challenge to fund an entire school.

The Art Wall project has given her campaign a kick start of over $1000 towards her end goal of $25,000 to fund the construction of a new school in Laos.

To support her campaign go to Pencils of Promise to support her and her friends selling their art with 50% of proceeds going to the fundraising effort.
