As in past years, artist & philanthropist Peter Tunney literally led the (artistic) charge.

This year’s artistic challenge by Tunney was foot-painting.

 

 

Not just any foot-painting, but celebrity foot-painting a la red carpet, or rather canvas carpet!

The final completed piece would be shipped to Haiti and put on display in one of the newly developed APJ institutions.

Among the celebrities in attendance, Ben Stiller, Susan Sarandon, Jackson Browne, Alan Cumming, London Browne, Jeanne Beker, Fefe Dobson, Drew & Jonathan Scott, George Stroumboulopoulos, Yannick & Shantelle Bisson and Natasha Koifman.

 

Even more admirable, Artists for Peace and Justice follows a 100% policy: every single penny donated by the general public goes directly to charity programs. Administrative and fundraising costs are supported by brand partners.
