Gift of Writing: Montblanc for UNICEF
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.
