The world is our canvas… LET’S PAINT IT!

“You have the love of humanity in your hearts.” – Charlie Chaplin

This morning, another group of Year 9’s pitched their campaign, this time involving face paint, in which people would donate money to get their face painted. This time, they were aiming to raise awareness for a place called Myanmar, in Burma, which is suffering from dramatic weather changes as an effect of climate change.

They are hoping to launch the campaign at this year’s school summer fair to raise money for the cause, and we are eagerly waiting for the results of this, which will hopefully reach the people in Myanmar, whilst getting young people involved in CAFOD.

When asking what young people thought that CAFOD was, we were surprised to hear that they thought their work was based solely in Africa, so we are eager to get them involved and to educate them on the fantastic work that CAFOD does in the UK and overseas to help others. We think that face paints will be a fantastic start!
