It’s with the greatest pleasure that we and X-Philanthropy announce a total joint donation of £2,868.56 to benefit Sa-Yes. This outstanding sum translates into just over 50.000 South African Rands, which is going to put as many as five young people through Sa-Yes‘ Transition to Independent Living (TIL) Youth Mentoring Programme.

heART for Charity is a fan organisation founded by Roxane L and Sophie G in 2009. Inspired by actress Gillian Anderson and her many charitable efforts, we assemble professional and amateur artists from all over the world to conduct non-profit charity events.
In our latest effort we auctioned original Gillian Anderson and The X-Files related fan art to raise money for SA-YES, a South African non-profit she co-founded in 2008. In celebration of Special Agent Dana Scully's 50th Birthday, these charity auctions (conducted in collaboration with X-Philanthropy) ran on eBay between February 12 and March 9, 2014. All items auctioned by heART and X-Philanthropy, including all donated artworks, were generously signed by Gillian Anderson herself in advance of the auctions, who also picked SA-YES as the beneficiary.
