Ladies and germs, I would like to introduce you to my old friend Aaron Sinift.
Aaron and I met in Iowa City and were in India at the same time which took us on many adventures and now, he is about to have a new one. He always amazes me with the largeness of his thinking and his big heartedness but mostly it's his approach, always original, completely his own.
He just sent me the finished website for his newest project, Five Year Plan, a total mission of love. He has merged passions and artists that have touched his life directly by curating artworks in a non-traditional way in the form of a book which is also a bag. This bag will contain the artworks and will be produced and printed in India in a traditional way thereby helping Indian artisans, weavers and printers. It is available for pre-purchase by any of us, in tiers of prices so as not to exclude anyone with all proceeds going towards Doctors without Borders (MSF) and fund future benefit work by Five year Plan.
The artists he's gotten to donate works are incredible including amongst them Yoko Ono, Robyn Beech, Julie Doucet, Greta Byrum and Donald Baechler. If that's not impressive enough, the website was totally conceived and HANDMADE by Aaron. Beautiful incredible stuff. Message of the day: Think Big.
