Canadian Celebrities Paint For A Brush Of Hope

This year A Brush of Hope raised more than $15,500 and the highest auctioned piece belonged to Leonard Cohen which sold for $2,088.

"There were some amazing paintings for auction and although not all the celebrities asked to participate are artists, each one crafted something unique, beautiful and personal for a great cause," said Korby Banner of Style By Jury. "As a 2012 spokesman for A Brush of Hope I thank every contributor, organizer and most wholeheartedly the buyers that make a huge positive impact on this project!" 

UPS Canada partnered with A Brush of Hope for a special reason. Ten years ago, Darren Martin, a Fredericton employee, had a kidney transplant.  The company wanted to show its support for Darren and to The Kidney Foundation of Canada by being a proud sponsor.  A Brush of Hope raises funds for critical research of kidney disease. Currently, there is no cure.

You can also visit www.kidney.ca/nbpei or join the Facebook group 'A Brush of Hope' to learn more about the event and how you can help find a cure.
