Medical Technician Clayton Bundschuh started a fundraiser in an effort to raise money for medical aid in Haiti. But this time, it’s not a typical fundraiser — it’s done through tattoos.
Tattoo artist Andrew Midtskau offered his shop for the day to tattoo people in exchange for $80 per tattoo. People all over the Lower Mainland gathered at Tabua Tattoo Company in Burnaby to contribute to the cause.
“If it means that I give up one day and somebody gets a cool tattoo out of it… and I love tattooing so yeah, it works out good.”
The money raised would go to a man named Wilfrid Macena who is a prosthetic technician in Haiti. Macena lost his leg in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and soon after, started making prosthetics. 10 years after the earthquake, he says people are still affected.
