It is not every day you get to hand over a rather large cheque for $27, 812.16 to the beneficiary of Art with Heart 2016, however that is exactly what we had the great pleasure of doing yesterday when some of the team from Truly Deeply paid an early morning visit to the big hearted founder behind One Voice – Mobile Shower Bus Josh Wilkins.
All funds were raised last September when our annual charity art exhibition ‘Art with Heart’ celebrated its sweet 16th year of supporting local Melbourne based charities through a one night only event of auctioning off paintings, silent auction items, mystery envelope’s and some very generous cash donations.
Last year’s beneficiary One Voice are a not-for-profit organisation whose aim is to create positive change in people’s lives by providing mobile shower services to help restore dignity in people experiencing homelessness.
Art with Heart was thought up by the team at Truly Deeply as a way to bring together a community that channels our combined creative energy to raise money for good people who do good things for those in need and that is exactly what the team at One Voice are doing on the streets throughout Melbourne and Sydney with their mobile shower buses.
A One Voice philosophy is that “we can all contribute to help make a difference” and through the very generous contributions of our Art with Heart 2016 supporters, One Voice will be able to purchase a third shower bus.
Thanks a million to everyone involved.
