ABC Charity, the world’s largest art project for charity, is currently in Mozambique and we are so excited to be producing a letter here as part of the first ever human alphabet! Check out our page below to learn more about ABC Charity, experience some of our past events through videos and get to know how you can get involved for the upcoming production in Mozambique, planned mid October 2018.

Imagine 500 kids in the formation of a letter of the human alphabet in this amazing and dramatic landscape in Mozambique

KIDS

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.

HELPING

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.

KIDS

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 co-create the letter chosen for their country together with the photographer and at the same time play and have fun. Together we inspire the kids to experience how fun it is to help other kids.

ABC Charity now invites the community of Mozambique to co-create the next letter of the alphabet with 500 kids.

DATE  Mid October 2018, exact date to be confirmed once we have confirmed location

EVENT DURATION  3-4 h + transportation time

INVITED  500 children (age 6-13) from local schools

COST  Complimentary for the children, thanks to the local community, including transportation, food, drinks, entertainment, giveaways and a memory for life.

PHOTOGRAPHER  Filip Cederholm Agoo

Location

The location is the most important part of creating a stunning picture. We also want the children to enjoy an event out in nature, connecting with their own country’s fauna and beauty.

The picture aims to represent the country in the best way possible and raise funds for the children charities ABC Charity registers in the web shop when sold. The goal is to show the beautiful and dramatic sunrise ocean and landscape that only Mozambique offers.

Our Events

Who we collaborate with

SCHOOLS

Once we’ve found the perfect location to take the picture we connect with local and nearby schools and charities to invite 500 kids to empower and create the letter together with.

CHARITIES

ABC Charity selects 1-5 trustworthy and reputable children charities in every country we go to and 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” through the power of art.

NATIONAL AMBASSADORS

National, influential and kind-hearted people share and create awareness about the event

MUSICIANS

We invite local and national musicians to create and produce music at the event for the kids!

LOCAL COMMUNITY

The local community supports and joins the event, enabling their kids to get a memory of lifetime.

Possibilities to contribute

We invite companies, local business’ and volunteers to create the change 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.

 

We love a good party and so do the kids! Let’s work together to get the kids dancing, singing, hula-hooping, and swinging through the day. Anything that can elevate the experience is welcome:

  • Clown
  • Face painting
  • Hula hoops
  • Beachballs
  • Frisbees
  • Slackline
  • Or let us know what you would love if you were a kid at an ABC Charity event?

A “Kind is the new cool” t-shirt is gifted to all the kids when they arrive at the event to set the stage for the day. When the day is over, we give all the kids an “I can change the world” gold medal, so they embody that they are positive change makers and have made a difference by creating the letter they were in.

Mmm yummy! After all the running, jumping and playing the kids will be hungry – help us feed them something absolutely delicious, preferably healthy as well! Below you’ll find the kid’s wish list:

  • Food / snack
  • A nutritious drink/juice
  • Additional water

Volunteers keep the machine moving on the day of the production – you’ll help us coordinate on the day, carry and prepare, give the kids t-shirts and giveaways, making sure the kids are safe, feed and are having the time of their life. Below are the different needs at the events:

  • 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

We seek to partner with a bus company that can help with transportation of approximately 500 kids to and from the event. In return, we will take beautiful pictures of the kids and the busses for the bus company to use. 

The picture is taken from anything that can get the photographer up 10-40 meter depending on the location. It can be a crane, helicopter, construction scaffolding or a 20-meter Bambu tower.

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.

Safety first! If we take the picture in a more dangerous place, we will keep the kids in an enclosed area to make sure everyone is having fun and staying safe. Depending on the weather we might need tents for sun or rain protection.  To secure the area :

  • Poles
  • Marking band/police tape
  • Popup tents/party tents or anything that protects the kids

With music, speeches, and artists performing, we try and get sound set up in order to make sure we’re heard loud and clear.

  • 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

Join us and co-create, we invite photographers and videoagraphers to support ABC Charity with additional pictures from the event. The pictures will be used in the article from the event, in social media and press. To join please send us your portfolio and then we’ll make a plan.

We are all humans and we all know how awful it is when you can’t go, especially if you are a kid. We therefore always arrange with toilets for the kids, how they look will vary depending on where we are in the world, but they all fulfill the same purpose.

To celebrate the production and further inspire we love to exhibit at the town hall or at any other suitable space in the country we produced. We would like to invite key persons from the country, authorities and celebrities to come and see what the kids created.

Event Sponsors, look here!

Are you or your company interested in making this day possible for the kids? For each letter we invite one Letter Sponsor to co-create the latter together with the photographer with team, the local community and of course all the kids. As a token of appreciation, ABC Charity offers the following ROI:

  • Printed A3 “Letter Of Appreciation” awarded to you or your company, including the letter we produced together. See picture
  • Digital “Letter Of Appreciation” for sharing in your social media
  • Pictures of your product or your service at the event
  • Access to all the pictures from the event to show your support (commercial rights not included)
