MALIBU, CA, February 14, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Brigitte Perreault, Founder and Owner of the 'Humanitarian Art Project', has been recognized by Worldwide Who's Who for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in humanitarian work.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, Ms. Perreault moved to Los Angeles in 1993 to pursue her dreams of owning a design firm and establishing her identity in the creative world. Throughout her career, she has owned a web-based jewelry design and collection business, and a web design and development firm. In the spring of 2001, Ms. Perreault sold her companies to embark on a new humanitarian journey. Working with refugees, state-sponsored survivors of torture, and those seeking political asylum, she is now launching an online platform to bring funding to local and international nonprofit organizations and support to humanitarian causes via the Art World. She attributes her success to believing in what sparks her passions, and surrounding herself with the right people. She also enjoys the challenges of creating new businesses.
Because she speaks both French and English, she has always made herself available to translate for doctors or in court, helping refugees become resettled and helping those seeking political asylum as they arrived in Los Angeles. During the summer of 2011, Ms. Perreault began searching for a way to simultaneously help those in need, work with the art world, and educate people about different humanitarian causes. She created a platform where all of this could be accomplished. Each online transaction generates a donation to a non-profit organization. In addition to an online Fine Art Gallery, online Art Auctions have recently been added to her platform.
Ms Perreault is also in the process of creating an Arts & Education Project, a non-profit organization named 'Stories Of The World Project'.
The highlight of her career was being sent to Gabon, Africa, to work with the late President Omar Bongo. The government relations firm she was employed by at the time selected her to help President Bongo build an electoral campaign. It was a memorable experience as it allowed her to meet with diplomats and government officials.
Ms. Perreault received a degree in communications from Collège Édouard-Montpetit, having completed coursework in communications, public relations, international relations, and Japanese language from Universite de Montreal. In addition to her formal education, she has also received certifications in neurofeedback and brain wave optimization. She is a committee member of The Program for Torture Victims, and received a volunteer award from the same organization. In years to come, Ms. Perreault hopes to run this project and help it grow globally. She also plans to travel overseas to do more on-site humanitarian work.
