Gift of Writ­ing: Mont­blanc for UNICEF


Vision Magazine - - Contents -

The cul­ture of writ­ing has been rev­o­lu­tion­ized with Mont­blanc’s ground­break­ing de­signs and fine crafts­man­ship. Since 1906, Mont­blanc has al­ways been com­mit­ted to pre­serv­ing this cul­ture by in­no­vat­ing ways to pass on the gift of writ­ing. Their lat­est part­ner­ship with UNICEF is one of their many ini­tia­tives to bring writ­ing and ed­u­ca­tion to chil­dren around the world. The com­pany hopes to im­prove child lit­er­acy and pro­vide qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion for over 5 mil­lion chil­dren through the ini­tia­tive.

Di­rec­tor of Mont­blanc Aus­tralia Leon Mervis said he hopes to pass on this cul­ture of writ­ing to chil­dren so that they can re­alise their full po­ten­tial.

The Mont­blanc for UNICEF col­lec­tion, “Gift of Writ­ing,” fea­tures writ­ing in­stru­ments, time­pieces, leather goods and ac­ces­sories. A Rosetta mo­tif with the first let­ter from the six dif­fer­ent al­pha­bets that chil­dren learn to write first is fea­tured on each piece in the col­lec­tion.

Mervis said that all items in the “Gift of Writ­ing” range sold be­tween 3 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 will be do­nated to­wards pro­vid­ing more chil­dren ac­cess to pri­mary ed­u­ca­tion of a bet­ter qual­ity. He hopes that funds raised by the col­lec­tion will help sup­port UNICEF’S ed­u­ca­tion work with gov­ern­ment and part­ners in China, Dji­bouti and Brazil.

UNICEF’S rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mary Waite said that all pro­ceeds will go to the UNICEF ed­u­ca­tion fund for train­ing teach­ers and pro­duc­ing qual­ity teach­ing and train­ing ma­te­ri­als which will ul­ti­mately help teach­ers bet­ter ed­u­cate chil­dren. nd

The col­lec­tion was un­veiled at two separate events in Mel­bourne and Syd­ney and it gave an op­por­tu­nity for dis­tin­guished guests to learn more about Mont­blanc’s ini­tia­tive.


The un­veil­ing of the col­lec­tion was held on May 12 at artist David Brom­ley’s pri­vate studio. Brom­ley is a rec­og­niz­able and in­no­vate artist in Aus­tralia. The artist and his wife, Yuge, greatly sup­ports Mont­blanc’s com­mit­ment to help chil­dren reach their po­ten­tial. At the event, guests had the ex­clu­sive op­por­tu­nity to take part in co­paint­ing with Brom­ley.


Dis­tin­guished guests were in­vited to the Mont­blanc bou­tique on Castlereagh Street on June 1 to learn more about the ef­forts of the part­ner­ship to help chil­dren with the new col­lec­tion.
