Ethereal Charity Artbook - Redkite
The artbook is an exclusive Charity Art Book featuring 100 selected Australian and international artists. All proceeds from this book went towards Redkite, a charity that works closely with children who have cancer. Organized by Miwa, an artist and a sister of a cancer patient, she drew inspiration from her hopeful sister and the works of redkite.
“In early March of 2011 my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia and admitted to the Royal Children’s hospital in Melbourne for what would prove to be a very long and painful journey. That year was the hardest year of my life, I can’t even begin to imagine what she was going through but through all the pain our family had some relief, this relief came in the form of Redkite. When my sister was undergoing treatment my parents would take turns staying in hospital whilst I would be at home studying. It was very tough, my parents could barely work and what’s worse is that all the materials for school where expensive and used up fast. The social worker who represented RedKite at the RCH’s name is Xuan, she helped us with everything. Not only financially but also with her big heart, I find it very hard to open up but when I felt like breaking down she was always just a phone call away.
A year and a half later my sister passed away, but Redkite hasn’t forgotten about my family. During my sisters last days, Xuan organised necklaces with my sisters name engraved into them for me and my mother. They may only be necklaces but for us it meant the world, I always want to thank Redkite and Xuan for all the love and compassion they’ve treated my family with.”
