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
You can also find out more about what I am doing on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter.
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!
