Sally from whateverittakes.org has emailed me some information on Nicole’s involvement with this charity. Nicole, among many other celebrities and famous faces, has contributed artwork to the charity, and it is used on various merchandise including clocks, bags, mugs, plates and jewllry. Nicole’s design – of a frizzy haired women with long legs! – can be seen on items including a mouse mat, plate, clutchbag and canvas print. I’ve posted news articles about some of these products before when they were originally available, but they seem to have added some fantastic new items, so read on for more information, and then go and visit their shop to see what takes your fancy!

Whatever It Takes (www.whateverittakes.org) is a charity artwork project that uses artwork donated from celebrities around the world to create ‘merchandise with meaning’ and has successfully launched mugs, plates and a range of bags amongst other things.
Whatever It Takes is a unique artwork campaign launched by 21st Century Leaders Foundation. The Whatever It Takes collection features ‘symbols of hope for the 21st Century’ drawn by leaders in the worlds of fashion, film, television, music and sport.
The signed artwork donated by each Leader is his or her original work, and has been donated for the exclusive use of the Whatever It Takes campaign which has so far raised over $4,000,000 for charitable projects worldwide.
Whatever It Takes supports 21st Century Leaders Foundation in its work for key global development causes including poverty alleviation, environmental conservation and the protection of children.
Many of the world’s most celebrated public figures have put their names to our projects. By becoming 21st Century Leaders, these public figures are pledging to do ‘whatever it takes’ to address issues of the 21st Century.
We work with our leaders to assist and encourage a generation of influencers to take ownership, engage in positive action, raise awareness among their communities, and champion the solutions to poverty and environmental degradation.
