A Brush of Hope, the Kidney Foundation of Canada's creative and colourful fundraiser, has a new gallery of paintings for auction on eBay.

A Brush of Hope's curators explain that, for the next week, you have the chance to buy original paintings by some of Canada's favourite stars. You could have an original "Ken Dryden" hanging from your living room wall, or an "Alex Lifeson" over your bed.  Perhaps you'd prefer a "Johnny Bower" in the recreation room or a "Liona Boyd" in the music room.

This fun campaign has raised many thousands of dollars to help battle kidney disease. Research done in Canada is important not only to Canadians, but to ALL people suffering from kidney disease because advancements of this kind are soon shared worldwide.
