One hundred celebrities are participating in “Jeans For Refugees’ by donating a pair of their jeans to be painted by Johny Dar. Each pair of jeans will be hand painted and auctioned online at catawiki.com. All one hundred pairs of jeans will be exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London from 24th October culminating in an auction event on the 30th October, when bidding will close. All proceeds raised will be donated to the International Rescue Committee (rescue.org).
Jeans owned and donated by Rachel McAdams for the ‘Jeans for Refugees’ collection – unique hand-painted artwork by Johny Dar | Size 24
Johny Dar: “I believe anyone would look good in her jeans! Just because of her personality that came through in the painting, which compliments everyone as she has so much grace in her beauty that she just can’t help it. It’s her nature, therefore its effortless – for me this is the most gorgeous thing about real beauty”.
A piece that will be the envy of your friends and family and will take pride of place in any gallery – private or public. The jeans are painted in a special 3D paint, making these incredible art pieces wonderfully wearable. Johny Dar’s hand painted artwork seeks to reflect the individual personality of each donor, and pays tribute to their unique character through its expression.
You are able to bid on the jeans donated by Rachel on Catawiki.com and for more information about Jeans For Refugees be sure to head over to the official website.

Rachel has signed the open letter ‘We stand with Grassy Narrows‘ in support of the Grassy Narrows. The David Suzuki Foundation released the following press release:
A diverse group of celebrities, musicians, artists and advocates — including Margaret Atwood, Rachel McAdams, Jane Fonda and Phil Fontaine — has joined the David Suzuki Foundation’s call to clean up massive mercury contamination that has plagued the Grassy Narrows First Nation community in northern Ontario for generations. In the 1960s, a pulp mill dumped more than 9,000 kilograms of mercury, a potent neurotoxin, into the English-Wabigoon River.
“For over half a century, mercury has severely poisoned the river that is the lifeblood of the Grassy Narrows First Nation and their neighbours,” said renowned broadcaster and scientist David Suzuki. “We must not delay; it is time to make their watershed healthy again so it can sustain future generations.”
Earlier this week, scientists released a report concluding that remediation of the English-Wabigoon watershed is possible. The report was supported by leaders from the First Nation, who are demanding the Government of Ontario commit to cleaning up the watershed.

Everywhere on Earth we can hear the songs of life. From small insects to the largest animals on the planet, our world is made up of the sounds of these creatures living and communicating with one another. This is even more apparent deep down in the darkness of the sea, where whales and other marine life depend on sound to mate, find food, migrate, raise their young and defend against predators. Yet, their symphony of life is being disrupted by the industrialized noise that has become commonplace in our oceans today – with tragic and deadly costs. The documentary will air at 9 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel. Be sure to check your local listing for the time.
