In 2014 FEAR and HOPE was a part of The Perfect World Foundation’s Save the Rhino project. FEAR and HOPE donated art to the Art Conservation Auction which was launched at the fund raising event, Save the Rhino Gala at the Clarion Post Hotel in Gothenburg 18 September 2014.
The art was created by Camilla Jönsson who while in South-Africa put together a team for an awareness project.The art were a triptrych of images inspired by South-Africa’s most endangered species: the black rhino, the Sahara Addax and the African wild dog. The FEAR and HOPE art created and donated by Camilla Jönsson generated €10,000. Overall the Gala was a great success and collected net €200,000 in favor to the Rhinos.
During 2014, The Perfect World Foundation specifically targeted the Wildlife trade under the name “Save The Rhino 2014″, the rhino is the ambassador for elephants, lions, tigers etc. with extra focus on the ongoing poaching, raising awareness and funds. The whole world is fighting to save the last remaining Rhinos and Elephants. If poaching continues at current levels there will be no wild Rhinos or Elephants left in 5-7 years’ time.
The event was visited by prominent guests such as the Swedish crown Princess Victoria among others.
Camilla Jönsson of FEAR and HOPE which attended the event is now also a proud Rhino Ambassador on behalf of The Perfect World Foundation.
Camilla, one of the founders of FEAR and HOPE and Anastasiya met the first time on a job in South Africa when she was doing Anastasiyas make up since she work as a model. Anastasiya was very curios about Camilla’s make up Nvey Eco since it showed later that she has a big interest in ecological products, health, animals and nature. After this conversation sparkle where around them and they couldn’t stop talking about their passion to animals and nature.
When Camilla heard that the multitalented Anastasiya also works as an artist and saw her amazing paintings of people together with nature she told her about FEAR and HOPE. Anastasiya was later asked if she would like to collaborate with FEAR and HOPE and paint on this theme. Anastasiyas passion for art and nature in combination with her experience from the world of fashion turned out to be a perfect match with FEAR and HOPE!
This lovley art will be avaliable for sale and the money will go to a charity project related to endangered species that Anastasiya will pick. More information on the charity project will appear on the FEAR and HOPE webpage.
