***Chiara Tomaini Designs New T-shirt for The MPT -
Second FFAD inspired 'Ready Freddie' design now available to buy!***
“Fundraising for the Mercury Phoenix Trust last year has really changed me! It was a fantastic experience:
I was in contact with different people that shared with me different stories and opinions about joining forces against AIDS. When I took a break from this challenge I felt so nostalgic…but while I was reading Twitter 1 month ago, I was so impressed how so many people celebrated Freddie in different ways, and I thought I had to be part of it once again with a new drawing for a new t.shirt. Besides the new t-shirt available now there is still a chance to order the old one I created last year,
I thought it'd be nice to bring it back and let people order it again, because during the break I received many requests about it! I hope I will be able to raise enough money for the The Mercury Phoenix Trust once again and to do better than last year.”

Personally, I can say that this is one of the experiences that has changed something inside: donate is something that makes you in peace with yourself; thinking that you do this for someone that is passing an hard time and you could give a hope to him or her...is priceless.
In all my life, this is the first time that I do this initiative and I'm thinking to do other things for the next year, I have so many ideas in my mind!
I really hope that other people will follow the idea to donate or do something for a charity, I think that we must become, step by step, more altruist with the others...even if is hard...but sincerely these are good steps to make the world better. I really would like to thank all the people that have decided to buy one of these t-shirt that I have created, means a lot for me, really! I want to thanks my friends, you know who you are, that every day and night have supported me, sharing around internet the link about the t - shirt, and I would like to thanks my parents, that in the hard moments they were close to me to support and help me, without them I could probably do very few or nothing!
Freddie and his music with Queen have helped me so much in my life,
so I decided to make this tribute to him with this drawing.”
“I'm not too good in expressing with words or to wearing a Freddie costume as some people do, so the only way to express myself and to help the MPT are through my drawings and drawing what I love.”
“The inspiration of this drawing was this phrase: "my soul is painting like the wings of a butterfly"; I have seen in Freddie as different colors, like his personalities when he sang at his concerts, so I have decided to capture him in different periods: the 70s to the 90s, and to put all the pictures together in a colorful way, as I have thought he was”. “I'm doing this initiative because AIDS is a terrible disease and people that are affected need to be helped and need to know that they aren't alone in this world."
and I would like to express my gratitude sharing some of the beautiful pics that i have received from the people that have bought the t-shirt.
