The Paper Watch Project

So I've given you a little sneaky peek into my world at Templar Publishing over the last few weeks and provided a little insight into The Paper Watch Project that I've been working on and I'm SO excited to announce that we have now launched the auction for these beautiful watches.

What is 'The Paper Watch Project'?
The Paper Watch Project is Templar's creative charity initiative. A one-off opportunity to bide on a unique piece of art (in this case a paper watch) created by illustrators from across the globe, all in aid of charity. We have over 80 beautifully designed watches up for auction over the next 10 days, by some of the country's best loved illustrators. So get over there and take a look.

Why Breast Cancer Care?
After shocking news that 2 inspirational members of the Templar team were diagnosed with breast cancer, the company set about raising funds for Breast Cancer Care.

Who's involved?

Hoping for possibly 10 volunteers, we ended up with almost 90 illustrators willing to give their time to our initiative. You can see the illustrious list here. The project is one of many fundraising ideas and is the brain child of the lovely Emma O'Donovan, aka my boss/The Book Sniffer. Before I started work here, I loved the concept of this project, so creating the site and auction pages was a real treat!

How do I bid?
Just pop along to our Auction page.
Choose your favourite (good luck with that one!)
Then simply click on the link underneath the image to place your bid. Simples!
Each watch has a minimum bid of £15 and 100% of the proceeds go directly to Breast Cancer Care.

I can't tell you how much fun I've had on this project and feel honoured to have played a small part, although the 87 individual auction pages did send me a bit cross-eyed at one point. Please go and bid, they are all fantastic pieces and all for a great cause.
