Thank you from Banksy

Painting for Saints or Game Changer is a 2020 painting by Banksy, who donated it to the Southampton General Hospital in Southern England, United Kingdom. The artwork depicts a child playing with a toy nurse, having selected the toy over superheroes Batman and Spider-Man, and was unveiled during the COVID-19 pandemic. The painting is largely monochrome apart from a red cross on the nurse's uniform. It was delivered to the hospital together with a note: "Thanks for all you're doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its only black and white".[1] The hospital titled the artwork Painting for Saints, which references "The Saints", a nickname for Southampton F.C..[2] Banksy himself posted the image on his Instagram account with the caption "Game Changer".[3]

The artwork remained at the hospital until it was auctioned off to benefit charities affiliated with the National Health Service.[3] It was sold for £14.4m (£16.8m including buyer premium) on 23 March 2021, which is a record for a work by Banksy.[4][5]

#werenotonlyheroes justforoneday

This video was made by the European Society for Emergency Nursing. It is a message for the Belgian politicians that they are not only heroes just for one day, they need support from the government everyday by lowering the pressure and highering the working conditions and salaries. 

At the moment many care givers are sitting at home with a burn-out. That is the result of the working conditions in the situation of the pandemic. We can't be there for the patients if the policy makers are not there for us. 

This is just 1 of the cases. This is happening in many many countries. Please raise awareness in the media and the politicians in your country to start improving the situation.

This years' campaign has a national focus. We think we have a bigger impact if all of our collaborators from all over the globe will approach EM-Day on a national level, translatingmost important messages into their own language and focussing on the national objectives of the EM-Day. 

In the call for collaboration is explained how we are building this years' campaign and how you can help.
