In these trying times, when our nation is gasping for breath, compassionate individuals and organisations, like always, are going out of their way to help us breathe, grieve, heal and give us courage and hope.
We at Compassion Contagion are collaborating with various artists to raise funds for many such organisations and individuals who are doing some extraordinary relief work.
In our efforts to support TYCIA Foundation, we are collaborating with Ankur Ahuja, a Delhi based illustrator and cinematographer. who has been documenting Delhi through portraits of people on the streets. Ankur has offered to 'Gift a portrait' - personalized illustrated portraits based on a photograph sent by you to everyone who donates INR 4,500 to TYCIA Foundation.
This photograph can be of you or of a friend you haven't seen for long; your grandma, who you haven't hugged in months; an essential worker who is doing all the running around to keep you safe at home or a neighbor who showed up in the middle of the night to tell you that 'This too shall pass...'
100% of the proceeds will be donated to Tycia Foundation.
Once you have made the payment, mail a photograph of the person you want to be drawn along with the mailing address email@example.com
You can also request for a note to be added if the portrait is a gift.
We will send you the digital portrait within 10 days and will courier the print (size: 9 by 12), once the lockdown ends.
For international donations, we will only be able to mail digital portraits and not prints.
