Caran d’Ache invites you to use your creativity to the benefit of UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and promote awareness with the hashtag: #Everyonecounts

During this somewhat turbulent time period, the call to stay at home has been stronger than ever. The idea of a home that is synonymous with safety is nevertheless not the same for everyone.

The aim of this drawing contest is to remind the general public that no one should be forgotten during this unprecedented pandemic because #Everyonecounts.

Take part in the contest to help us spread the message by registering here.

To inaugurate this partnership, our ambassador, the illustrator Nina Cosford, will produce drawings live on the theme of #Everyonecounts on the Caran d’Ache Instagram account at 5 p.m. (GMT+2) on June 3 & on the UNHCR Instagram account (@refugees) at 4 p.m.(GMT+2) on June 5.
