Night of a 1000 Drawings in Berlin raises funds for feeding scheme in Johannesburg

(Editor: Alex Smit-Stachowski is speaking in her column about life as a South African now living in Germany. The South African journalist lives in Krefeld, in North Rhine-Westphalia/ Germany).

Earlier this year, I wrote a story on the founder of 1000 Drawings Berlin, Claudia Retief and how she planned the „Night of a 1000 Drawings Berlin” event at the Willner Brauerei in Berlin at the end of May. About 600 people attended to look at the many drawings on sale to raise funds for three charities, including one for homeless South African children.
