Dear Dilmah & MJF Foundation
The work that Dilmah and MJF Charitable Foundation do is truly admirable. We would, therefore, like to start a conversation to see if we potentially could create an empowering event for the kids in Sri Lanka together with you. We have put together this presentation page for you to easier get an understanding of how ABC Charity works. We hope that you like what we do.
The world’s largest art project for charity has arrived in Sri Lanka and we are so excited to be producing the letter J, of the first ever human alphabet, with 500 kids on the island! Below you see the letters A-H, how ABC Charity works and two videos from the events.
Imagine 500 kids in the formation of the letter “J” in this lush landscape
We create empowering photography events for thousands of kids around the world together with sponsors, photographers, the local community and of course all the kids.
The letters created by the kids are sold in the ABC Charity web-shop and 100%of the revenue after print and transaction fees are covered, is forwarded to a charity of the buyers choice, always a minimum of 90% of the total sales price. DHL is shipping free of charge all over the world and ABC Charity charges nothing for the services thanks to generous pro-bono partners.
We register 1-5 kids charities in all countries we produce a letter in our web-shop. These are the organizations the buyer can choose from when purchasing the letters in the shop.

The Kids Photography Event
We roll out the red carpet for the kids to create a memory of a lifetime and inspire them to become positive change-makers. They get to play and have fun and at the same time support other kids by creating the letter chosen for their country. We let them experience how fun it is to help other kids.
ABC Charity now invites the community of Sri Lanka to co-create the next letter “J” with 500 kids.
Date: The last week of May / first week of June, exact date to be confirmed once we have confirmed location
Event duration: 3-4 h + transportation time
Invited: 500 children (age 6-13) + local community and companies who wants to support
Cost: Complimentary for the children, thanks to the local community, including transportation, food, drinks, entertainment, giveaways and a memory for life.

The location is the most important part of creating a stunning picture. The picture shall not only represent the country in the best way possible but also raise funds for children charities when sold. Our thoughts are to show the beautiful green lush landscape with the significant tea plantations, waterfalls, and mountains.
Once we found the perfect location we will connect with nearby schools and charities to find 500 kids to empower and create the letter together with.
ABC Charity selects 1-5 trustworthy and reputable children charities in Sri Lanka to register as recipients of the funds from the art sold in the ABC Charity webshop.
Press & Media
We invite press, TV, Radio, social media influencers and everyone who wants to share the story about “Kids Helping Kids” throught the power of art.
Influencal and kind hearted people play a key role in getting the word out and create awareness about the importance of empowering the next generation.
We invite local and national musicians to create and produce music at the event for the kids!
The most amazing part is to connect with the local community and the children. We look forward to meet you.
Possibilities to Contribute
We invite companies and volunteers to #CreateTheChange they want to see in the world and empower the next generation. Together we create an amazing day and photography event for the kids in the country we produce. Below we outline possibilities where people can contribute to an empowering, secure and fun event.
- Face painting
- Hula hoops
- Or let us know what you would love if you were a kid at an ABC Charity event?
- Food / snack
- A nutritious drink/juice
- Additional water
- 15-30 coordination volunteers who hand out food, play’s with the kids, support when organizing the letter and clean the event area after production
- 5-10 authorities, the police or fire department secures the area making sure the kids are safe
- 2-3 nurses, just in case anyone gets a bruise or a scraped knee, we like to make sure the kids are kept safe
Why not a drone? A drone would be a much easier way to take the picture, however, it is not considered photo art unless the photographer holds the camera. Since the pictures are sold to raise a lot of money for charity we will do everything we can to increase the value of the picture.
- Marking band/police tape
- Popup tents/party tents or anything that protects the kids
- Stage 3×4 meter 1 meter high
- Soundsystem enough to entertain 500 kids
- 2 wireless microphones
- Additional microphones depending on the performance
- 2 megaphones to organize the kids when we are arranging the letter
