A Brush of Hope 2011 ~ October 20 - 30
Each year The Kidney Foundation of Canada mounts an unique fundraiser for kidney research - "A Brush of Hope". Canadians from many walks of life pick up paint and brushes to create one-of-a-kind works which are then auctioned on eBay.
Allison Crowe is part of this tradition, and this year she joins: fellow Canuck musicians Leonard Cohen, Susan Aglurkark, Alex Lifeson (of Rush), Hawksley Workman; comedians Mike Myers and Elvira Kurt; representing the political spectrum, MPs Elizabeth May (Saanich-Gulf Islands - and Federal Green Party Leader), Justin Trudeau (Papineau), and New Brunswick Premier David Alward; alongside figure-skater, Kurt Browning, NHLer John Tavares, and a score of others lending an artistic hand to the cause.
