As Instagram culture booms, people have the option to either build each other up or tear each other down.  For Husna Burki, 19, the social media platform is an opportunity to help those in need.

Husna has recently started an Instagram page by the name of “Paint For A Change” where she sells paintings at¬†affordable prices.

 

What makes Husna’s Instagram unique is that she donates all the proceeds she makes from the paintings to charity. She told MangoBaaz: “I made¬†the page not to gain any form of money for myself, but to rather use the¬†money for all the right reasons. Therefore, I decided that all the money from every single purchase will be donated to Shaukat Khanum (and other future charity events).”

How thoughtful of her!

Husna lives in Norway and visits Pakistan every year. She says that “Every time I am in Pakistan, I am always reminded to use my blessings to help others, thus the reason I made a charity campaign. My Instagram page ‘Paint For A Change’ is a social platform where painters can sell their work for a great cause. All the money will be donated to Shaukat Khanum, which as you know, is a cancer hospital in Pakistan. I paint my own paintings as well as requesting other painters to donate their work. Currently, I am in search of painters that are willing to donate their work and spread the cause to other artists.”
