ActionAid's PoverTee Day

30 June 2011

Paul recently got his feelings about poverty and injustice off his chest by designing an exclusive t-shirt to support international development charity ActionAid's first ever PoverTee Day. Joined by a host of high profile names including Helen Mirren, Ricky Gervais, Joanna Lumley and Graham Norton Paul's t-shirt, which featured one of his smiley face doodles and was signed by the man himself, was auctioned on eBay. The proceeds from the auction helped to build a safe haven for street children in India and provide them with sports and games to play with. There are thousands of children living on the streets of Andhra Pradesh and Utter Pradesh in India and ActionAid is working to help them off the streets and into safe 'drop in' shelters where they can get counselling, training and the chance to return home.
