“Only 900 grams but I made it” designed for Newborns Vietnam by Clare Humphreys.
‘My thoughts as, I developed this drawing was to create a card that symbolizes – a journey of hope and the gift of life, my son was 3.5kilos when he was born so the title of the sketch was based on photograph of a Vietnamese premature baby that struck a chord with me. I hope the card will help the Cycle a Difference ride participants inspire their family, friends and colleagues to support them to meet their fundraising target.”
