Creaid Greece: A Special Bag for a Special Cause


Greek artists join to create unique tote bags for Médecins du Monde.



Two hundred tote bags will be auctioned for a good cause. 200 participants with an artistic, business and journalism background were asked to create a unique tote bag for CREAID. CREAID is a non-profit organization that serves the fundamental principles of mutual respect and human dignity, creating and delivering assistance to Médecins du Monde (Doctors of the World).

Marina Vernikou, president of the association, invited 200 guests mainly from the artistic, business and journalism scenery to join in an effort to gather money to buy one mobile unit necessary for Medecins du Monde. The positive responses were overwhelming, the 200 participants were asked to design their own unique tote Bag.

The tote Bag will be the subject of the auction which will be held on April 1st at One Athens, in Kolonaki, the fashion quarter of the capital of Greece, while the corresponding exhibition will start on Saturday, the 28th of March and will remain in One Athens for a week for all of those who like to visit it.
