A FEW WORDS
HI, MY NAME IS AVNI GODSE
I have started a non-profit business where I sell my artwork to raise money to host events where those with disabilities and illnesses can come and express themselves through art to feel special, just like how I feel when I do art!
I started painting at a young age and as I grew older, I knew that I wanted to use my talent to help others.
The inspiration for my project came from some postcards that my grandpa had showed me when I was on a trip to India. The postcards had images of paintings that were done by people with no arms instead they used their feet and mouths!
I was very amazed and inspired by the fact that even though these people had a disability, they followed their passion and made amazing pieces of art.
That’s when I decided I was going to help people with disabilities and illnesses.
With the money I raise, I plan to continue to run a number of pop-up events where those with disabilities and illnesses can come and express themselves through art and feel special, and I also want to donate a number of virtual reality (VR) headsets to Sick Kids Hospital to help relieve stress, pain and anxiety to the children who become patients of the hospital
I am also excited that I will be starting a podcast series very soon.

I hope you can join me in my journey of helping others feel special by buying some of my art or even making a donation!
