Sketchcrawl's will be occuring accross the world on May 15th and the Dublin Sketchcrawl is being orgnised by none other than the Dublin Sketchers.
We're planning to do our sketchcrawl in aid of Aware Ireland (visit http://www.aware.ie ).
Aware' s mission is to create a society where people with depression and their families are understood and supported, are free from stigma and have access to a broad range of appropriate therapies to enable them to reach their full potential. Aware aim's: * To educate the public on the nature, extent and consequences of depression. * To provide emotional and practical support to those affected by depression and related disorders. * To support research into the development and treatment of depression and related issues.
So! We need sketchers to alert all of their friends and sponsor them on a sketchcrawl in aid of Aware or get them to participate in the event themselves, even if it's a euro or two all donations are welcome, even if you can't make the event, please donate!!!
