On the Trading Floor for CureEB and Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 11, 2018

Damian makes trading look easy as he participates in the 14th annual GFI/BGC Charity Day 2018 on Tuesday, September 11, 2018 in London for CureEB and the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation. He stated,

“Axe is gonna bring some insider info to the floor to really crank those trades.”

First up was GFI Charity Day where Damian hit the trading floor for CureEB. CureEB is passionate about medical research and clinical trials that will help lead to treatments and a cure for 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.

Next up was BGC Charity Day where both Damian and Helen wowed the brokers for Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation, a foundation dedicated to ensuring that 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.

Here are a couple of videos of today’s event:

Damian and Helen will Join This Year’s GFI Charity Day – Sep 1, 2018

On the Trading Floor Again for a Good Cause

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 1, 2018

Damian will be joining the trading floor for this year’s GFI Charity Day 2018 in support of and to raise funds for Cure EB. Epidermolysis Bullosa is a genetic skin blistering condition that affects over 500,000 people around the world. It has a devastating impact on sufferers and their families. It is unrelenting in its pain and the distress it causes. Because EB is considered a rare condition, it does not attract government funding. Cure EB.org has a chance to make a difference to an incredibly painful, disfiguring and ultimately fatal condition.

Charity Day 2018 will take place on Tuesday, September 11 at GFI’s offices in New York City.

But that’s not all. Guess who will also be there?

No matter what their background, young people can achieve incredible things. Despite lives stifled by unemployment, homelessness, being in care or being in trouble with the law, young people can succeed with help. Without the right support, those from the most challenging backgrounds might never achieve their potential. The Prince’s Trust community gives vulnerable young people the chance to build a life for themselves and funds help to train, mentor and support them to build their skills and confidence.
