My Weekly Notebook: ‘Jeans for Refugees’

‘Jeans for Refugees’  is a Johny Dar project and artistic fundraising initiative dedicated to helping refugees around the world, with all proceeds going to the International Rescue Committee.

 One hundred celebrities are participating in “Jeans For Refugees’ by donating a pair of their jeans to be painted by Johny Dar.  Each pair of jeans is hand painted and being auctioned online at  All one hundred pairs of jeans will be exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery in London from 24th October culminating in an auction event on the 30th October, when bidding will close.  All proceeds raised will be donated to the International Rescue Committee (

The 100 ‘Jeans for Refugees’ are a collection of artistic expressions affirming that each human being has a unique and equal value, and a right to live in stability, safety and peace. Every life deserves a chance, and whether by contributing time, skills or resources, everyone can help to create change. We can all collaborate in some way to help the people on this shared planet of ours who urgently need support at this time.


“This started as a humble dream of wanting to make a difference through what I can do, on a personal level, which is painting those jeans – and the rest was only possible through the generous souls that have contributed to this project. I am honoured and humbled to be part of this, with all you beautiful beings. I would love to mention everyone by name who has helped to bring this all together but we would need a small newspaper for that, and you know who you are… thank you with all my heart. 

Thanks also to everyone who is here, supporting the project with their presence: Your support really means the world, and means a lot to the world, because by coming together for a common cause, great change is possible. ” Johny Dar
