Since moving to London, I have been appalled by the poor air quality and pollution.
I love living in London, as do so many others, but we should not have to pay for this with our health and be made to breathe in toxic fumes on a daily basis.
Over the last year I have been using my artwork to raise awareness of this issue. You may have seen one of my inhaler stickers around busy roads in London, Hull, Manchester or even Berlin.
Air pollution causes 1 in 8 deaths worldwide. Air pollution is a leading cause of many common killers. It accounts for about one-third of deaths from stroke, chronic respiratory disease, and lung cancer as well as one quarter of deaths from heart attack
92 per cent of the global population live in places with unhealthy air quality. Air pollution comes from many sources: Inefficient transport, coal-fired power plants, industrial activity, waste burning and other human activities
More than 7,000 mayors have committed to reducing their cities’ air pollution emissions. The Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy is an international alliance of cities and local governments that have committed to taking voluntary action to combat climate change by embracing low-emissions solutions
Most areas of the UK are breaking EU limits on air pollution. Yet the government's current plans won't reduce pollution to legal levels until at least 2020 – and in London, 2025
A child born today might not breathe clean air until they are 8
248 hospitals are in areas where air pollution is above the World Health Organisation’s limit for fine particulate matter (PM2.5)
Outdoor air pollution is responsible for up to 36,000 premature deaths a year in the UK
I CARE. I DRAW. I SUPPORT.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN
 Help RENEGADE ART reach his pledging target
£95 is the target Renegade Art would like to reach. He agreed on given away the full amount to his chosen charity – British Lung Foundation.
The artwork featured in this campaign is up for grabs. The highest contributor wins it at the end of the campaign. – Terms & conditions .
Pledge today and help Renegade Art fulfil his total pledge – no payment is required
“Although London is leading the way in tackling air pollution with the Ultra Low Emissions Zone, I feel that more can be done by local councils and the government to educate drivers, monitor pollution levels, invest in alternative ways to travel.
They should also take action to reduce air pollution where people are most at risk such as around schools, hospitals and doctors surgeries.”
Terms & conditions
Use the form and pledge any amount you wish as little as £1.
After clicking on the PLEDGE NOW button, you will be taken to our PAYPAL checkout page where you can complete your pledge submission.
For transparency purposes, all pledgers are asked to allow their identity and the amount pledged to be published on the website along the time and date at the time of the submission.
But remember, the artwork will be given away to the most generous pledger!
Once you submit a pledge of say £20, this converts into 20 tokens. The more tokens you have, the more likely you are to be taking the featured artwork.
Whoever's got the most token by the time the campaign ends (see bottom of the form to find out the date), wins and take the featured artwork home.
It is not possible to increase your pledge once submitted but you can pledge again.
Any new pledge(s) will count towards your total number of tokens so if you pledge 20£ and then £50, you would then have 70 tokens in total. You must use the same details (Name and Email) for each pledge you make for them to add up.
Drawing United will collect the pledges via this website and will make a donation from the chosen charity website.
Donation receipt will be made public via the site and/or social media channels.
We will also, when possible, ask the chosen charity to acknowledge receipt of the donation via their preferred way of doing so.
If the target fails to be hit within the given timeframe, the featured artwork can be bought directly from the Drawing United site. Proceeds to go to the charity
As for your pledges or tokens, they can either be:
- used towards buying the featured artwork
- used as a credit to purchase anything from the Drawing United site such as our print collaborations coming for the Drawing United Collective. A large majority of the proceeds when buying such a print will be given to charity.
- transferred onto another campaign
In the event where two or several people are tied to win the artwork - ie they all pledged the same amount which is the highest across the board, whoever will have submitted his/her pledge first will take the prize.
The campaign needs to hit its target for this to be valid.
An A4 digital print of a 'surprise' artwork will also be won by the 2nd and 3rd highest pledger.
The same 'first pledged, win' rule applies as per the top prize.
