Vforacause is a non-profit organisation founded by Vasilis Athanasiadis which is helping children through art projects.
Children that suffer from a life-threatening disease or a disability are being helped by Vasilis art and music projects as well as through the sales of apparel. 100% of the funds which are being gathered through donations help fund the medical treatment of children in need.
Vasilis was born in Germany and since 2012 is living and working there. He is seeing Art as a form of activism. His art projects are helping children in need around the world. Vasilis believes that a collaboration with other artists combined with the power and positive vibes of people will have a positive impact and will help make the world a better place for everyone.
Vasilis goal is to help as many people as he can around the world, working together with people from the art and the music scene. Artists like Jr, Lenny Kravitz, Prophets of Rage, DEEP PURPLE, and many others are helping his mission to go further and higher!
“As a Youth ambassador, I am more than just an artist, more than just a voice, I am continuously trying to change the world in every kind of way. We ALL have the same rights and the right to equal opportunities. That's why I'm here to fight for the Good and give hope to the people that need it the most.
Too many people still live in extreme poverty or with poor health care. It is important to me to use my privilege to stand up for these people. I will say it boldly, I am NOT going to fight for me, but to uplift my little brothers and sisters who together with their families are struggling to get medication and medical treatment.
Art is to introduce me to the community but the main idea is to fight for compassion, equality and solidarity, and this is what I plan to do within art. I use my images to inform, help, support and point that people with such problems are not alone. Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. I envision everybody, helping and spreading love to each other, like being one BIG family.”
