(Here’s a message from Merlin, the charity for which I am a Trustee, and which is doing sterling, amazing, brilliant work on the ground in Haiti).
The Haiti earthquake has, as you will be aware,Ã‚Â generated a ground swell of support from every corner of society.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Six British artists and Giles Baker-Smith of GBS Fine Art have come together to donate six fantastic pieces to raise funds for MerlinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s work in Haiti. With five pieces available for individuals, this unique online fundraising appeal and prize draw, limited to 100 tickets, provides you with a 1 in 20 chance of winning a piece of art.Ã‚Â And for corporations we have one larger installation, which would sit well in a corporate setting.Ã‚Â Tickets for this piece are Ã‚Â£500, with only 20 tickets available.Ã‚Â All the pieces, valued between Ã‚Â£1,500 and Ã‚Â£6,500, are on offer today, so please read on for details of how to enter the prize draw and make your donation to MerlinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s emergency response in Haiti.Ã‚Â Both draws are a great opportunity to support the Haiti Appeal and have the chance of winning some great art! Do pass this on to anyone who may be interested.
For Individuals: To enter the prize draw click this dedicated link and make a minimum recommended donation of Ã‚Â£100*

The artists in question are: Sean Fairman, who has provided the corporate piece; Emily Allchurch; Veronica Bailey (and in relation to her piece, by kind donation of Coutts & Co); Susannah Baker-Smith; and Robert Davies.Ã‚Â Merlin extends a huge thank you to these artists and to Giles Baker-Smith who initiated this appeal.
