Help children to thrive
Art of Kindness – dedicating August to Save the Children Australia. We are shining a spotlight on this inspiring Charity Partner throughout the month of August to raise both awareness and funds to support everything they do for kids in crisis.
Help us make our new Save the Children Collection a vibrant, active hub where artists and buyers connect to make a real difference! At the end of August we will launch and promote the Save the Children Collection in a Virtual Gallery Tour video! ❤️
BUY ART TO HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN: When you purchase an original work from the AoK Save the Children Collection, you can be confident that all net profits will be donated to helping children. See how proceeds are allocated.
For you, as an art collector, it's a win-win-win: you get to own a gorgeous piece of original art, support a generous Aussie artist, and help children in crisis, all in one quick and easy online purchase. The artwork will be lovingly packaged and sent directly from the artist to your door. Browse the Save the Children Collection.
Another way to support Save the Children is to select any artwork from the whole AoK gallery, and select Save the Children at checkout.
CREATE ART TO HELP SAVE THE CHILDREN... Calling arty peeps of all ages who care about supporting and protecting children so they have the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Throughout August we will be featuring and promoting Art of Kindness artists and makers who support Save the Children with their work. All submissions made by 31 August 2021 will be included in the final Video Exhibition, so there's still plenty of time to get involved...
We are putting the call out now, so you have time to create/submit a work before or during August that is inspired by Save the Children Australia*. Here's a fun and meaningful artistic challenge to get your creativity firing...
Create an original piece inspired by this Save the Children Australia prompt:
“Humanity owes the child the best it has to give.”
These are the words of Save the Children founders Eglantyne and Dorothy Jebb. The sisters started the first global movement for children in 1919 in the wake of World War I.
Over 100 years later Save the Children has teams around the world dedicated to ensuring all children have the right to grow up safe, happy and protected. At Save the Children we work in 125 countries around the world, including in over 200 communities right here in Australia.OR watch the video below for inpiration

How to submit your art:
All we need is a good photo of the piece you’d like to share (a shot of you would be great too, but that’s optional 😊) emailed to me at email@example.com and I’ll reply with the online form which collects all the details we need in one place. For more detail, here’s our Easy Guide to Sharing Art.
*The sky is (almost) the limit – there are just a few limitations / restrictions:
- The artist takes full responsibility for obtaining all permissions and copyrights that may apply to the source image/s being used.
- Save the Children Image Guidelines – for both internal and external use and in all forms of publishing, including online, broadcast and print. Aim to portray all people with respect, honesty and dignity. At times we need to highlight the reality faced by children in life-threatening circumstances in order to convey the urgency or gravity of their situation. When we show children in need, help must be clearly visible within the image. Do not use images that show people in an undignified manner. For example, children as unresponsive and with flies and mucus on their face, or as desperate recipients of aid. Images must be respectful and truthful, showing the experience of people affected, and the environment and the context of the situation.
- Save the Children cannot provide permission for artists to use photos found on their website or social media channels as inspiration, due to the sensitive nature of the background/story of each child, and the complexity in obtaining permissions.
