The Douglas Bader Foundation is very proud to announce the launching of a unique fundraising website www.ArtToFly.orgin this the 100th anniversary of Douglas’ birth and the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain in which he played a part. It’s not an ordinary commercial website, as you will see!
ART TO FLY features a wonderful collection of Aviation themed Original Paintings, Original Drawings, Rare Editions, Collectibles. Painted by respected Aviation Artists and many signed with the original signatures of Fighter Command legends, Battle of Britain pilots and holders of the VC.
ART TO FLY is a non-profit website. 100% of all profits go to support the Douglas Bader Foundation’s Disabled Children’s Flying Days. Run by the Foundation, this programme gives young children who have lost limbs, or are otherwise disabled, the opportunity to experience the thrill of flight and a day for them and their families to remember.
Please take a look at Testimonials under the heading “About Us” on our website’s navigation bar, and read what Louis Stephen has written about his experience of a Flying Day. He is very disabled but his letter says everything!
We thank you for your past and ongoing support.
Chairman, The Douglas Bader Foundation
When he began publishing aviation art over 30 years ago nobody had thought of the idea of obtaining important and relevant signatures of wartime heroes to accompany those of artists on military art prints. The idea was so new that, understandably, when approached, distinguished ex–military personnel had serious reservations about becoming part of what was to be a commercial enterprise.”
