11 Days Left to Fund the Little Lotus Documentary & Art Project on Kickstarter

Some of the best, most talented and most giving members of our art/toy community are trying to raise the funds needed to go to the Thailand/Burma border to work with the local children. They'll be doing collaborative art, making a documentary on about the experience, and auctioning off the pieces back here in the US, with proceeds going back to the children.

Some of the people involved are toy artists Angry Woebots, J*RYU & Ritzy P ,and filmmaker Daniel Zana (you might have heard of his doc "The Vinyl Frontier").

The SpinningTop 'Little Lotus Project' is a collaborative art project, linking twelve international artists with refugee and migrant children on the Thai/Burma border. Through a variety of art workshops the children experience the joys of creativity while also being part of a huge multi-media project which brings exposure to the children's cause. Access to education and art supplies is a luxury for these children and all funds raised from Little Lotus will go towards their ongoing welfare and education.
