This FingerSmear was created at the Soroptimists International of Americas conference in Hawaii this past July. There were 1,500 women from 17 different countries, all brought together to work for the betterment of women and girls around the world.
Creative self expression is a powerful tool for adolescent girls, who are by and large the most universally underserved and at-risk population worldwide. “Mighty Fingers Raising Change” aims to unite girls from 14 different locales across the globe in a singular, artistic expression.
World renowned artist Kelly Sullivan is famous for her collaborative “FingerSmear” murals. She has helped over 80,000 people (and many celebs) get their fingers wet with paint and create lasting public art works that celebrate local and global communities alike.
“Mighty Fingers Facing Change” is trying to raise $145,000 in order to fund Ms. Sullivan’s newest project. Kelly and her team aim to travel to 14 different locations on six different continents, where they will enable young girls to complete a 16′ X 5′ foot piece of the artwork at each new destination. They’ve partnered with many non-profits across the world that work to support underprivileged girls and women. Won’t you help them reach their goal? Click here to make a donation!
