Hollywood superstar Will Smith will auction a special artwork signed by music artists who performed at the Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, to raise funds for poor children. The
star is joined by his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in raising the money that will go towards providing food to more than 500,000 school children in Haiti.
The artwork will be sold by UN’s World Food Programme and the Will & Jada Smith Family Foundation on auction website eBay. The art is based on a map of world hunger. It is decorated with personalised silhouettes drawn by Smith, his family and the artists who performed at the concert. “There can be no true peace in the world while there is hunger,” Smith, wrote on his silhouette on the map.
Along with his wife, Smith co-hosted the concert held in the Norwegian capital on December 2 to honour the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize, US President Barack Obama. The artists who participated in the artwork are Wyclef Jean, Natasha Bedingfield, Toby Keith, Westlife, Alexander Rybak, Amadou Mariam, Donna Summer, Lang Lang and Luis Fonsi.
