A collective artist has formed behind the concept of customizing water pots for charity.

A simple idea to hopefully raise loads of money. Loads and well notorious artists such as Tracey Emin, Pure Evil or the Chapman brothers, have answered yes to this event which will be held on the 11th October at Philips.

A terrible industrial disaster hit Bhopal (india) in 1984 where a cloud of toxic gas leaked from a pesticide factory and spread over the city and killed about 25000 people directly or indirectly.

The money raised would go towards the clinics and medical staff looking after the people affected by this tragedy.

Some of the water posts look really good and quirky so if you have got a bit of spare cash, go down to Philips and get one! I have inserted a selection below, click on the link below to see them all on the Pure Evil website .

Artists involved: Anish Kapoor | Anthony Gormley | Barry Reigate | Conrad Shawcross | Gary Hume | Gavin Turk | Harland Miller | Jason Brooks | Keith Coventry | Langlands and Bell | Marc Quinn | Mat Collishaw | Mona Hatoum | Patrick Hughes | Paul Fryer | Polly Morgan | Pure Evil | Simon Periton | Sir Peter Blanke | Stephen Webster | Subodh Gupta | Jake and Dinos Chapman | Tim Noble and Sue Webster | Tracey Emin and Yinka Shonibare MBE
