GIVING BACK
BERMANO GIVES BACK

From the very beginning it was my intention to give back to the World through my art. Currently between live and silent auctions and monetary donations my art has raised over $250000 for different amazing charitable organizations. Here are some of the charities I support.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOUNDATION "MAD"

Headed up by former South African rugby captain Francois Pienaar (who was immortalized by Actor Matt Damons portrayal of him in the movie INVICTUS). This organization raises millions for youth in South Africa so that they may unleash their potential and get a college degree.

WATCH the live AUCTION where Bermano’s painting sold for $20,000.

OPERATION SMILE

Operation Smile revolutionized cleft surgery globally in 1982. With four decades of experience as one of the largest surgical volunteer-based nonprofits, Operation Smile staff, its private-public partnerships and thousands of volunteers have improved the health and dignity of patients with cleft conditions, helping them to better breathe, eat, speak and live lives of greater quality and confidence.

While one cleft surgery can transform a child’s life in as little as 45 minutes, Operation Smile is committed to providing patients with health that lasts by being there to offer patients additional surgeries, dentistry, psychological services, speech therapy and other essential cleft treatments. Its training and education programs elevate local surgical standards and entire health systems, aid safe surgery and enable a global network to reach more people earlier in their lives.

24 HOUR CLUB

In 1969, Lee Tillman founded Dallas 24 Hour Club as a place to be open 24 hours per day for individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction who were seeking help.

The story goes...one night about midnight in June 1969, Lee was 12-Stepping a man when the building was getting ready to close. Lee tried to explain that he couldn’t leave this man whom he was trying to help. Words were exchanged and Lee and this man were forced to leave before finishing their conversation. This incident had such an affect on Lee that he came up with the idea for The 24. A few weeks later, he opened Dallas 24 Hour Club.

EDIE WINDSOR FOUNDATION

Edith "Edie" Windsor[1] (née Schlain; June 20, 1929 – September 12, 2017) was an American LGBT rights activist and a technology manager at IBM. She was the lead plaintiff in the 2013 Supreme Court of the United States case United States v.
