The idea is simple, Jean Claude has purchased and is donating an authenticated print of a piece of Prague street art created by the Graffiti artist Chemis.  Individuals are asked to send donations of 25€ to LUkraine, then send an email to pledge@ara.lu with proof that they have done this. Each person who donates will be issued with a number for every 25€ they spend.  

At end of April Jean-Claude will join Tom in the studio to pull a number to determine who receives the print.

Lisa McLean of ARA stated “We are happy to help in any way we can, obviously people can pledge more if they wish, and they will be issued a number for every 25€ they donate.”

The piece called Child of Ukraine reflects the vulnerability of Ukrainian children and echoes the cry from Ukrainian authorities to the West to close the skies over Ukraine.

About Jean Claude

Known affectionately across the Radio ARA shows and to listeners simply as JC, Jean-Claude Nurenberg is known as a star listener. Always on hand with suggestions when features are run on the Breakfast show, or when a stand-in presenter needs a track suggestion, he is there.  Jean Claude approached ARA at the beginning of March, like everyone in Luxembourg, deeply concerned about the situation in Ukraine and wondering what individuals could do to raise funds for humanitarian aid.  

At the same time a graffiti artist known as Chemis from Kazakhstan who is based in Prague  was having similar thoughts, Chemis travels the world creating street art that is a reflection or commentary on society. All proceeds for the prints of Child of Prague that he sold went towards humanitarian aid in Ukraine.
