Fridge Magnet Challenge 2019 – book out now!

The fourth book of its kind, created to celebrate and share a fantastic collection of art. We’ve had a brilliant range of art genres  involved in the fridge magnet art challenge 2019. The aim was to raise money for ‘Supershoes’ – a registered charity ran entirely by volunteer super artists, who create one off customised converse and hats for children and young people fighting cancer in the UK.

The Idea

Challenge artists from all over the world to create a unique piece of art on a 4″x4″ magnet then auction them off to raise money for Supershoes charity. The art is then put in to an online auction and displayed at KKBO for people to bid on before the winning bids are announced.

How It Works 

The fridge magnets are numbered and put up for auction on Facebook prior to the KKBO event, where the fridge magnets are displayed. People are invited to get involved with the fun of the auction by placing bids and checking in to see if they were outbid! The winning bids are announced and the fridge magnets claimed.

How It Went 

Brilliantly! Lots of bids came in, both online and over the weekend at KKBO.
The total amount raised was £1852.63.

The Charity 

On average each pair of Supershoes costs £50, to buy, create and deliver to a child. Supershoes is an entirely voluntary organisation so their overheads are mainly shoes, postage and their office near Milton Keynes, the funds they receive are used very precisely to support their mission of Empowering Children Fighting Cancer in the UK.

PKG Magazine & PKG Events Limited are proud to sponsor Supershoes and would like to thank all who got involved in the challenge, both artists who sent in their art and everyone who placed a bid. In the future we hope to raise even more awareness and more much needed cash for this super charity!
