Create for Flood Relief – ARTIST CARDS

In early August, Pakistan was plunged into turmoil as the northwestern region of the country was ravaged by flooding. A group of students at the University of Manitoba is coming together to help support the efforts of the Canadian Red Cross in Pakistan. Comprised primarily of visual artists, the group is creating miniature art pieces to be sold to the general public. These will help raise funds and awareness for those who have b…een devastated by the loss of their land, livelihood, community, friends and family.
