Thank you for your patience!
2018 has been a hectic one for our pro bono committee organisers so we’ve shifted the Night of 1000 Drawings event to 2019. This gives us the dedicated time we need to do our best for this inspiring project.
The new #BringYourArt campaign kicks off with the first breath of Spring on 8 September and the event will be held at the end of February / beginning of March 2019. We’d love you to jump on board with us and start creating beautiful new A5 artworks.
It’s all thanks to you!
To everyone who has helped make a difference in the past – THANK YOU – your creativity and support has translated into a better life for many inner city Joburg children. R100 000 of the funds raised from 2015 to 2017 went to Streetlight Schools to help establish their now thriving school.
1000 Drawings also donated R45 000 to the Bjala Foundation for the renovations of their Helping Hands Early Childhood Development Centre as well as donating R20 000 to Paballo Ya Batho for the servicing and maintenance of their vehicle used to for their inner-city feeding scheme where they feed 250 – 300 homeless people each week.
The charities benefitting from your generosity for 2018 / 2019 are Dlala Nje, Everybody Love Everybody (ELE) and not forgetting our original beneficiary, the one who inspired the beginning of 1000 Drawings, Paballo Ya Batho.

Many thanks to our first kick-off doodle session held at St Teresa’s Art Festival (in partnership with The Keyes Art Mile) in Rosebank. It was lovely to see people getting creative for charity and we’ve already got some beautiful artworks in hand.
