'Hope is the thing with feathers' - Emily Dickinson

I have made a limited edition feather series for Shelter because I'd like to help those struggling this Christmas

We support people at risk of homelessness to make sure there's a home for everyone

Charity Registration No. 263710


Please note that the editions have now finished and there are no more feather editions available. 

Any donations after this point will be gratefully received by the charity. No one would want to be out in the cold at this time of year, so every donation helps.

Thank you to all who have donated, you've gone above and beyond the target! 

Very best festive wishes,

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Each year I choose to create an artist edition in order to raise money for a charity, this year it's Shelter, a charity which I have a particular admiration for. 

There are two types of works available:

'I am lost' Dove, 2017 - £25 [SOLD OUT]
'I am lost' Pigeon, 2017 - £20 [SOLD OUT]

Both are signed 'Kate MccGwire' and sent by first-class post, following a donation of the above amounts. If you would like to donate more than the cost of the feather, or if you would like multiple feathers, please include details in a note at point of donation (there is a maximum of 2 feathers per person, due to limited availability). Once you have made your donation please email with your postal address and your feather will wing it's way over to you!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
