MIFFY ART PARADE SPONSORSHIP

11-05-15

In 2015 it is 60 years since Miffy first started delighting children and their parents. And this will be celebrated all year long!

One of the events being organised is the Miffy Art Parade: a project that honours Miffy, her creator, and fans of all ages worldwide. The Miffy Art Parade unites, inspires and is helping to create a better future in partnership with UNICEF. 

In support for UNICEF 
UNICEF, the world's leading children's rights organisation, is committed to making quality education available to all children, because a good education enables children to make a difference. UNICEF relies on the support of dedicated partners, volunteers and donors. In celebrating 60 years, Miffy is actively supporting this cause: the proceeds from the auction of the Miffy Art Parade statues will be donated to UNICEF in support of education projects. Together we are working to provide better education for all children.

Sponsorhip 
The On Time Group is proud to be associated to this event as a sponsor. Also, On Time provided international transportation of the statues. 

60 unique Miffy statues 
The great day is finally here: all 60 statues have now been unveiled! Forty-five of the statues will be on show in the Netherlands until 30 September. And in Japan, 15 statues created by local artists will tour the country until the end of 2016. Some of the statues are available as miniature replicas, which means you can be the proud owner of your favourite Miffy statue. There is also a book about the Miffy Art Parade, with an overview of all the statues, as well as information about the participating artists. Artist Marte Röling was recently presented with the first copy at the official opening of the Miffy Art Parade. These and other great items are now available via the Miffy Art Parade webshop.
