10 year old artist uses his talent to help feed hungry school children

Young and talented artist, Ammaar Jackson decided to select the hungry children fed by PSFA as the charity of his choice to benefit from the proceeds of the sale of his artworks.

Ammaar, who is only 10 years old and is in grade 5 at Bishop’s Preparatory School, loves playing soccer, cricket and hockey and is a member of his school’s art club. Ammaar received an award from his school for his art during 2016.

Ammaar decided to create his own business called Kreatifkids. He wanted to start a shop, selling things just like his grandfather and great grandfather have done.

His mother Nawahl suggested that he sell his artwork online so she created a special website called www.kreatifkids.com, where items that include his artwork such as mugs, notebooks / journals and greeting / gift cards can be purchased online.

Ammaar says “my mom and I spoke about how we can use some of the money to help others. We chose to donate proceeds from the sales of each item to the Peninsula School Feeding Association, as they help to feed many less fortunate children than myself who come to school without food, like many of the children who go to Surrey Primary in Athlone where one of my grandmother’s is a teacher. I really hope people that have seen some of my art like it so much, that they will buy some of my products and help me to help other children.”

PSFA is grateful for Ammaar’s support and urge you to visit his website www.kreatifkids.com and purchase his artistic merchandise.
