U guise r so supportive!
A lot of people are being very supportive of my idea to raise a bit of money so I can buy a new tablet (Wacom Cintiq 24HD, otherwise known as Artist’s Heaven and the thing that’ll enable me to improve some more). Thank you! If you haven’t done so already, could you answer my question about it?
A thing about my job!
You probably don’t care, but I am doing another one of those about me posts!
As you know, I’m an artist, it’s my passion and my everything. But not my job.
In real life, you know, the thing where you don’t dream of doing the thing you love the most, I am what one calls a community manager. It’s something to do with marketing and social media.
I manage all social networks for one of our clients, which is none other than Malaria No More! Netherlands. It’s a very awarding job to be doing. In the USA, Malaria No More is a huge organisation with a very dedicated Marketing team. They constantly have really cool campaigns.
Malaria No More! Netherlands is a much smaller organisation without a marketing department, but that, for me, makes them a very very charming organisation to work for. They really do believe in everything that do and they are the most humble people I’ve met in a while. It’s hard sometimes, to try to get things off the ground here. But very important, because over a million kids die of malaria in Africa alone every year. And not only is it the most common cause of death in Africa, it also really impairs the economy in Africa. It costs the government 12 billion dollars every year.
I was never really a person prone to give to charity, and I’m still not, but I do gladly donate my time to this organisation, because they are truly inspirational.
