Academy Award-nominated director M. Night Shyamalan is partnering with charity organization Givology to improve education opportunities for children around the world.

On Friday, July 29, the M. Night Shyamalan Foundation and Givology will formally announce their partnership at the “Make Your Mark on the World Event” in New York City.

Shyamalan will give the opening and closing remarks at the event, which will feature a keynote address by Valentino Achak Deng, as well as an art auction. Paintings from Givology’s “Make Your Mark on the World: Interactive Art Exhibition” will be sold, as will original pieces by Givology sponsored students.

According to Look to the Stars, “During the ‘Make Your Mark on the World’ interactive art campaign, respected graphic artist Joseph Kilrain created a 6’×11′ world map mural which was publicly displayed in Union Square in New York. Hundreds of supporters marked or fingerprinted the map to indicate where they would like to create impact. The individual canvases of this one-of-a-kind mural will be sold and auctioned on July 29th.” 

The proceeds from the auction will benefit partners of Givology, an online giving marketplace that supports education and scholarships in the developing world, and “democratizes philanthropy by introducing choice, transparency, and information sharing in education philanthropy.”

The M. Night Shyamalan Foundation was created in 2001 by the director and his wife. According to the Foundation’s website, its purpose is “less about ‘charity’ and more about equity and justice. It is no longer about just ‘giving back’ but about a responsibility to ensure other have the same opportunities to dream, and to realize their dreams.”

If we recognise that Hercules matters morally, then we have no good reason for excluding other animals from our circles of moral concern.

Changing our perception of animals as things – or vessels for the fulfilment of human desires – requires a shift in moral thought.
