The Story Behind That Picture: "Thank you, Singapore"

By: Thorsten Overgaard. December 5, 2015.

 

 

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

We made $10,000 for the children of Cambodia on the opening night of my exhibition in the Leica Gallery Singapore which was also the best-selling ever in the gallery history.

Singapore was rocking on November 27, 2015 when we opened the "Exhibition von Overgaard" with performance by Grammy-considered recording artist Joy Villa and a crowd of photo enthusiasts packed from wall-to-wall

 


Exhibition von Overgaard opening night in the Leica Gallery Singapore.

 

I'm proud to say that the exhibition already is the best-selling photo exhibition in the history of the Leica Gallery Singapore already before the opening night had ended. You can buy the prints and get them shippwed to anywhere in the world (see PDF below).

Thanks to the enthusiastic crowd there was sold for $10,000 signed prints and all proceedings are going to the children of Cambodia through Caring for Cambodia.

Present was the Singapore president of Caring for Cambodia, Ms. Tracy Dowell who told how buying one print for $500 will keep one child in school for 2.5 years and also give that child two meals a day so they can stay energetic and awake during their school life.

Ms. Tracy Dowell also told how $1,500 will supply a water pump that supply a village with fresh water for many years without further energy or maintenance required. "Feeding a school kid in Cambodia is $30 a year!" I tell my own children, "that is three drinks from Starbucks" she told the cheering crowd.

As topping of the cake, all children gets a school uniform which is almost as significant in their life's as a crowning of a king.

A Ray of Mr. Tan

Apart from the many supporters who bought signed prints on the opening night, the hero of the evening was none other than store manager of Leica Store Raffles, Mr. Ray Tan who lead the sale of signed prints and made a very personal plea to support the children of Cambodia. And Leica Camera Singapore also bought two prints for them self!

Support the cause and get a print for half prize

You can buy the prints by downloading the PDF below and avail yourself of a Thorsten von Overgaard signed print for about half the normal prize, knowing that every cent of your donation reaches the children of Cambodia.

Besides looking pretty on a wall, each print also symbolizes 2.5 years of school and food paid for, for one child in Cambodia (or 7.5 years - a whole school life for a child - if you buy the large, signed and limited print!).

Buy prints online via the PDF below, or visit the exhibition at the Leica Gallery Singapore at Raffles Arcade in Singapore (open throughout December).

 

The Exhibition von Overgaard is on till January 2016 in the Leica Gallery Singapore in the raffles Archade.
