Explorers Against Extinctions "Sketch For Survival" Campaign

A little while ago, Plum Pudding were contacted by the charity "Explorers Against Extinction", who are raising money through their campaign "Sketch For Survival" by asking artists and celebrities to donate artwork to be put into their auction. A few of our artists have donated some fabulous pieces!

The charity raises awareness of a very important cause - to quote their website:

"One elephant is killed in Africa every 15 minutes. That's 100 a day. An average of three rhinos a day are killed for their horn. To raise awareness of these shocking statistics we asked artists & celebrities to do a simple 15 minute sketch to support our campaign."

As well as the auction, an exciting event is being held on the 12th October at the Royal Geographic Society in which leading experts in the wildlife field will come together to "make a stand against extinction". 

An exciting evening with some famous faces including Ranulph Fiennes will be attending - to get your ticket follow the link below:
