The 1in11 Campaign is collaboration between UNICEF, the FC Barcelona Foundation, and Reach Out to Asia (ROTA) to help disadvantaged children around the world receive better education, infused with sport and play. To raise money for the organization, several artists have contributed artworks to be featured in a charity auction at Sotheby's on Feb. 12, including Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst who created portraits of UNICEF's Goodwill Ambassador Lionel Messi.
