Hi—I'm Guillaume, a Creative Director from Paris now living the Dutch life in Amsterdam. Until I save up enough money to realize my dream of becoming a star-faring astrotourist, I’m realizing new, transformative ideas, back here on Earth.

How to turn sh*t into (little) gold?

Context In the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, health systems collapsed everywhere, challenging our collective capacity to respond. With an exponential need for medical equipment and lacking support for the healthcare workers on the frontlines, it was crucial to fund and foster a global response, urgently.

Mission How to help, even if just a little?

Idea With looming lockdowns sparking panic buying, toilet paper suddenly became the icon of our global distress. So overnight, we launched GIVE-A-SHEET, an emergency call for quarantined artists to unite and turn the coveted item into a canvas—channeling art into a force against the pandemic.

Helping wipe the outbreak away

In the end, 100 sheets were sold out for a total donation of $12,550.

People could go on GIVE-A-SHEET.com to purchase a square, or contribute. @give.a.sheet could also be followed on Instagram, where artists started using their own feed as a window into the initiative. With all the proceeds going towards the WHO, anyone, anywhere, could go on GIVE-A-SHEET.com to purchase a square of TP art, thus helping wipe the outbreak away.

From humble initiative to global fundraiser

With no less than 50 artists from 28 countries answering the call, GIVE-A-SHEET scaled up from a humble Amsterdam-based initiative to a global fundraiser.

Many artists actually spontaneously reached out to get involved. One toilet paper sheet at a time, they transformed the ironic icon into a hopeful one, collecting money for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, helping the frontline from their home — but also triggering confidence, smiles and wows all around the globe and the gram.

From a symbol of distress to one of hope

Eventually, the large resonance of the initiative on and offline exceeded its initial, simple fundraising purpose.

Squarespace (our web host) contacted us to offer free media space; large media companies (like Mashable) offered to cover our story online, and offline. And yes, people sometimes spent $500 over a single square of TP, not just because it was art, but because it was a fight.
