In addition to the theme of “Honoring Artists” in recognition of the role of artists to inspire the world through their work, this Call for Mail Art was also intended to help raise awareness for World Art Day, celebrated on April 15th each year (Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday).
AFABW Int has sponsored Mail Art activities and campaigns for most of the past two decades (since 2001), often in support of World Art Day.
Artists For A Better World International has a purpose to raise the awareness of worldwide artists about using their creative powers to benefit mankind by leading the way to a better world and by supporting like-minded public benefit organizations that advocate humanitarian benevolence.
