Red cross children's hospital.

Today was a very special day for me. Together with Kidrobot and Kronk, we held a media release event, for an upcoming Art benefit to be held on Saturday 3rd September 2011, to raise funds for the Red Cross Children's Hospital.

The patron of the event is Amanda Bloch, who has been working to improve the facilities at this amazing hospital that caters for children's medical needs.

Today, thanks to Kidrobot's generous donation toward this cause, Kronk and I went to the hospital. There, together with the children and staff, we created a custom toy to be auctioned at the art benefit, to raise funds for another improvement to the hospital.

Our main attraction was a 12 year old boy named Willem who has had both of his arms amputated, due to being so badly burnt when he climbed an electrical pilon to get to a birds nest.Willem now draws with his mouth and feet - a skill that was amazing to witness.

Here are some of the pictures from today's memorable event.
