About the CharityUNITED NATIONS FOUNDATION INC
Each day we act as if the world depends on it. Because it does. The UN Foundation is the go-to partner for the United Nations, bringing together the ideas, people, and resources it needs to drive global progress and tackle urgent problems. Our hallmark is to collaborate for lasting change and innovate to address humanity’s greatest challenges. With an insider’s knowledge and outsider’s flexibility, we stay agile to get things done.
We are bringing together a volunteer group of artists who are creating art reflecting the challenges of the Covid19 pandemic, to raise awareness and funds for the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Foundation in their battle to save lives. Through the Covid-19 Response Fund assistance program.
Donations support the UN Foundation and WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments.

The artists who are participating in this fundraising movement are from all over the country. They all share a compassionate desire to help support and assist with the fight against the Corona Virus and Covid-19.
Each artist has been asked to create something that helps tell a story about the pandemic. We want to see and hear about their process as much as appreciating the final outcomes.
We hope you enjoy all the stories, talents and amazing creations that come from this organic collaboration of caring artists. And we hope you will generously give and share this with others so that we can help the people and communities that have been hardest hit. Your support is greatly appreciated! Thank you.
