Pushing the Envelope - The National Literacy Trust

Oli has been invited to get inspired for ‘Pushing the Envelope’ 2012 and design an envelope to raise money for the National Literacy Trust.

The celebrities & designers involved in the seventh annual Pitney Bowes Pushing the Envelope campaign have transformed everyday envelopes into exclusive works of art which will be sold on eBay from 12th March 2012 until 22nd March 2012.

Oli’s envelope will be amongst other names supporting the initiative this year including actress Dame Judi Dench, fashion designers Giles Deacon and Louise Gray, authors Joanne Harris and Sir Frederick Forsyth, children’s author Rod Campbell, singer Dame Shirley Bassey, musical group Coldplay and Olympian Sally Gunnell OBE.

All proceeds from the auction go to the National Literacy Trust; a charity that works in disadvantaged communities across theUK, helping people to gain the literacy skills they need for success and happiness throughout life.

You can see Oli's envelope and inspirational words below...

Interested bidders can view a selection of the envelopes at the campaign’s website www.pushingtheenvelope.info
