Canadian celebrities paint & create for Kidney Foundation
“A Brush of Hope is a true Canadian phenomenon! The paintings are incredible, unique collectibles that everyone has the opportunity to own and all of the funds raised support The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s important research programs,” says Tim Fox, executive director, Atlantic Canada Branch of The Kidney Foundation of Canada. “Thanks to the kind support of UPS and our other sponsors, we continue to gain community support and all of the money raised by the sale of the paintings goes directly to the cause.”
hen Martin, a Fredericton employee, had a kidney transplant. The company wanted to show its support for Darren and to The Kidney Foundation of Canada. Since then, UPS has been a proud sponsor. A Brush of Hope raises funds for critical research of kidney disease. Nearly two million Canadians have, or are at risk of contracting, the disease. Currently, there is no cure.
UPS Canada, along with Endeavours Art Stuff and ColArt are proud sponsors of A Brush of Hope.
