philip martins | photography is delighted to announce the release of his annual fund-raising photographic calendar for 2017, Street Art of George Town, Penang, this year supporting the Live for Lily Foundation. This is his 7th annual charity photographic calendar, and one of his best with some very cool images of the fabulous Street Art of George Town, in the Malaysian State of Penang which he visited earlier this year. His charity calendar initiative continues to grow each year, now having raised almost $20,000 for local charitable organisations and worthy causes since the first version back in 2011.
All profits from the sale of Street Art of George Town, Penang will be donated to the Live for Lily Foundation which will be used to help fund the Children’s Cancer Institute Australia (CCIA) Zero Childhood Cancer Program.
The Zero Childhood Cancer Program is a national initiative of Children’s Cancer Institute and The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network. The Program is led by scientists and clinicians from Children’s Cancer Institute and Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick and is one of the most exciting childhood cancer research initiatives ever undertaken in Australia, to tackle the most serious cases of infant, childhood and adolescent cancer. The Program involves the detailed laboratory analysis of each child’s unique cancer cells, to help identify the drugs most likely to kill their specific cancer. Scientists and doctors will then work collaboratively to identify and deliver the most effective treatment plan, specifically tailored to suit each child’s individual disease.
But programs like this are expensive and funding is vitally important. It costs approximately $20,000 to put one child through the program which is no small amount of money, but that $20,000 could be the difference for a child who is suffering cancer. To provide some context, approximately $25.00 from each copy of this year’s calendar sold will be donated to the Live for Lily Foundation, meaning for around every 800 copies sold, that is one more child who will get the opportunity to participate in the Zero Childhood Cancer Program and have and increased chance of beating their disease.
We would really appreciate your support in helping us sell as many of these fabulous calendars that we can this year.
