Hand-drawn animation charity initiative

Author: Moriz

[email protected] is a joint effort to form an impromptu community of stay-at-homes in times of global pandemics. Initiators of the project are graphic designer and illustrator Moriz Oberberger and designer and web developer Philipp Polder.

The cause of their project is to raise some money for charity (specifically for the Covid-19 Solidarity Fund by the WHO) by offering hand-drawn animations as a donation incentive. Every donor is added to an ever-growing public list of participants and can link to their website. Thereby they can discover their friend’s friends, be entertained by the animations and support a good cause at the same time.

The main idea behind this project is to reflect on this collective experience of self-isolation and social distancing. The designers want to bridge this gap by creating a spontaneous community, that everyone could be a part of. They hope to give all participants the opportunity to form some sort of connection to the project and to each other through discovery. The colorful characters, that each donor becomes a patron of, are representative of the various absurd ways to cope with the ongoing situation. The constant flow of new animations should entertain the “People at Home” and perhaps give them a little something to look forward to. Finally, supporting a good cause with a small donation is also a sure way to feel a little less bleak.

So far 150 people joined the [email protected] community and they raised already more than € 2,000.– of donations. Keep spreading the word and become a part of this community as well.
