Damian is a Patron of Cure EB, which supports those affected by epidermolysis bullosa, a severe genetic skin condition that leads to blistering and skin loss at the slightest friction. Children with the condition are often referred to as ‘Butterfly Children’ as their skin is said to be as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.
Damian is also a Patron of HvH Arts Foundation, a foundation near and dear to Helen McCrory’s heart and is dedicated to ensuring every child is given a chance to connect with and express their inner artist in a time when funding for the arts are squeezed out of the mainstream curriculum.
Since its inception, Charity Day has raised approximately $192 million globally. Each anniversary is a poignant occasion for Cantor Fitzgerald and GFI Group. Charity Day is their way of turning a tragic day into one that is positive and uplifting by helping others.
