25,000 Mice to Africa


I recently worked on a project with a fantastic Irish Charity called Camara who are based here in Dublin. In they're own words:

Did you know that businesses and individuals in Ireland will throw out over 1 million working computers over the next 5 years? One of the goals of Camara is to stop these computers being dumped in Irish landfill sites and send them instead to schools and colleges in Africa.

I worked on illustrations to be used online and for posters for their 25,000 Mice to Africa campaign which aims to supply 276 schools, 7 countries, 4 hubs, with 25,000 mice. But enough babble from me, check out their great site and shop for more information and find out how to make use of your old computers.

Hi Chris, fantastic poster. My uncle Ray has gone on two of the trips with the computers to install them in Africa. Its great to see the charity being advertised so well.

When I first read it, I thought it was like one of those "goats to Africa" charities, except with mice.

Thanks Everyone! I think it's a great charity. Andrew, paddy I see what you mean. It all makes much more sense with the full text laid over it.

'Trap' was a feeble pun
