As artists, we wield tremendous influence in our culture. Plato rightly feared the arts’ ability to shape thought and sway the affection of society. When we harness the power of our public voice to speak out as advocates, we pierce the consciences of good men and women. We are proud to join forces with artists who are willing to use their influence and platform to tell the stories of those whose voices might never be heard... the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed living in impoverished communities around the world.

Laura Vandervoort

Who is Laura Vandervoort?


"There are good things happening in the world, people helping people. You can be a part of it, no matter how small or large that part is."

Laura Vandervoort is a Canadian actress, best known as Elena Michaels on SPACE’s hit TV series “Bitten.” Born and raised in Toronto, Laura has been working since she was 13 years old and considers herself lucky to be doing what she loves best.

About 10 years ago, Laura began sponsoring two children through World Vision. But she wanted to do more. In early 2015, along with her older sister, Laura embarked on the journey of a lifetime to Kenya. “It was a chance that I couldn’t pass up. I had just turned 30 and had been through many things which had changed my life. I wanted to do more to focus on others, to help, and to widen my vision of this world.”

Help Laura Vandervoort Support 'Daughters of India'


Laura's 2015 trip to Kenya inspired her so much that she wanted to take some of her creativity and give back in a meaningful way. She teamed up with jewelry designer Melissa Lovy and designed the 11:11 Limited Edition Capsule Collection. A portion of all proceeds go towards World Vision Canada's Daughters Of India program."
