Welcome to Drawing Hope

Drawing Hope is a tax exempt charitable organization that – through art – serves survivors of abuse and other life struggles. Drawing Hope helps survivors connect with their own strength, see their beauty and embrace their freedom.

Drawing Hope is the organization behind a number of projects: Points with Purpose (PWP), Freedom Woman, and a portfolio of charitable works by David Ilan, which he has been creating over the last decade as a Celebrity Artist.

These projects all aim to raise awareness of globally relevant issues; educate about topics that are not easy to talk about; inspire people to help each other to survive, heal and live well; and motivate action that – on a global scale – will create change.
