Smile Foundation and LAY’S join Hands

Artwork for Heartwork

As a part of the on-going #Heartwork initiative, Smile Foundation in partnership with LAY’S has launched a special exhibition ‘Artwork for Heartwork’. The initiative brings together India’s leading artists and celebrities to generate funds for procuring hygiene kits for the numerous unsung heroes like farmers, truck drivers, shopkeepers and many more such unsung heroes who have been working tirelessly during these challenging times.

The initiative brings together art pieces of close to 10 celebrities as well as 100 local artists all of whom have made and donated original artwork for the “Artwork for Heartwork” cause. Some of the popular Bollywood celebrities supporting the initiative include Sonu Sood, Arshad Warsi, Chitrangada Singh, Karan Tacker, Manushi Chhillar, and Ishita Dutta, who have contributed sketches, acrylic work on canvas, charcoal work on paper and doodles to help raise funds for the initiative.

 “I am glad to be part of this initiative and showcase my gratitude by donating an acrylic painting as a tribute to their tireless efforts. Art as a medium has always inspired me to express more than words. I hope that all of us can come together and give these unsung heroes the care they deserve in every way possible.”

Manushi Chhillar 

 “While we have been fortunate enough to take care of ourselves by staying indoors, there are several heroes like our farmers, truck drivers and many more who have been out, day and night, to deliver us joy in every form, with not just their hard work, but heartwork. Today, through this artwork for heartwork initiative, I’m expressing my gratitude to all these heart workers with the team Smile Foundation.

“They say a picture can speak a thousand words. It brings me great joy to join hands with Smile Foundation and LAY’S for their Artwork for Heartwork initiative, to support the unsung heroes who are tirelessly working each day to bring joy to millions. As a token of gratitude, I am doing my bit by donating this specially curated acrylic painting that is very close to my heart. I believe that art as a media transcends all barriers and I couldn’t have expressed it any better. These heroes deserve it all!”

Karan Tacker 

 “I am sure that the current time has taught us all innumerable lessons which will shape our future. My biggest takeaway has been to never give up and work for the collective good for our community. The Artwork for Heartwork initiative by Smile Foundation and LAY’S has made me realize that for some efforts never stop, such as farmers, truck drivers, retailers and more unsung heroes who bring joy to millions. To reciprocate their efforts, I am delighted to donate my artwork and I hope to bring safety and joy in their lives. “
