Doodle for Ukraine with Tenterden’s Mr Doodle

To help raise vital funds for UNICEF’s Ukrainian support, world-famous artist Mr Doodle released a ‘Doodle for Ukraine’ and put it on sale on his website.


Mr Doodle, real name Sam Cox, is an incredibly talented artist whose pieces have fetched just shy of $1m, and he took his first steps as an artist right here in his hometown of Tenterden.


CommunityAd were privileged enough to have a brief chat with Mr Doodle – who’s amassed over an incredible 2.8m followers on Instagram and worked with the likes of Puma and MTV – about his recent doodle that sold over 1,350 copies and raised and incredible amount for UNICEF.


Speaking to us about his ‘Doodle for Ukraine’, Mr Doodle told us: “On March 5th this year I released my “Doodle for Ukraine” print in order to try to support UNICEF’s emergency efforts in helping children affected by the war in Ukraine. The giclee print, which was not signed or numbered, sold for the price of £100 each with all profits being pledged to UNICEF.

“I was humbled to find that over 1350 copies were sold within the 48 hour sale period. We had generous supporters from all over the world purchase a print in order to support Ukraine. This resulted in not only a very busy period for the dispatch team at Doodle HQ but most importantly a net profit of just over £100,000 which I was pleased to donate to UNICEF who do such good work in such challenging circumstances.”


It wasn’t too long ago either that Mr Doodle, who spent some of educational years at Homewood School, expressed his love for Homewood by donating £10,000 and said it was a special place to him growing up where he developed his personal style of drawing.
