Your donation will help pay for the operating expenses for the Celebrity Male Role Model Pixel Reveal campaign
The Pixel Project is a global, virtual, 501 (c)(3) registered nonprofit organisation which works to taking fund-and-awareness raising for the cause to end violence against women (VAW) into the 21st Century by delivering innovative, powerful viral campaigns across various online and virtual channels including social media.
We are a worldwide coalition of grassroots activists and volunteers using the power of the internet to mount a global effort to raise awareness about and hopefully mobilise millions to get involved with ending violence against girls and women. We strongly believe that men and women must take a stand together for the right of women to live a life free of gender-based violence.
Our team is currently scattered across 4 continents, 12 timezones and over 10 cities worldwide, proving that there are no cultural or social barriers when it comes to this issue.
Our first project (2010) is to turbo-charge global awareness about VAW using social media while raising US$1 million for Malaysia’s Women’s Aid Organisation and the U.S.A.’s National Coalition Against Domestic Violence by getting a global audience to collectively unveil a million-pixel mystery collage of Celebrity Male Role Models at US$1 per pixel.
The project will invite 4 to 6 world-famous male celebrities with strong family connections, no history of violence, and are role models for men in relationships with women and children, to participate in this collage of portraits.
We have appointed award-winning international photographer Jillian Edelstein as the project’s principal portrait photographer. Jillian’s work includes the iconic Nelson Mandela portrait for the cover of the New York Times magazine.
The philosophy behind choosing positive male role models from different walks of life is to emphasise that men have a major role to play in breaking the cycle of violence against women.
To date, our distinguished mystery Celebrity Male Role Model line-up include a prominent Nobel Prize Winner, a Pulitzer Prize winner and a superstar environmentalist.
