A DNA 11 Kiss Portrait helped battle cancer at the Canadian Cancer Society’s Grand Desserts Party in February. Women gathered in their cutest black dress to nibble on decadent desserts and toast the eventual eradication of cancer.

The event featured an amazing array of silent auction items—everything from travel packages to wine, beauty products to jewellery, food experiences to personalized art. Our Kiss Portrait was excitedly bid on and the event raised more than $15,000 for women’s cancer research. Our sister company CanvasPop also provided $30 gift cards for all attendees.

It was a great night out for some of the DNA 11 ladies—we were excited to be a part of such a worthwhile event!

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.

Justin Timberlake is a Real Man

Following up on our tweet from Ashton Kutcher a few weeks ago, today we’re launching the next phase of our “Real Men” campaign to help end child sex slavery.

Until the end of June, we’ll donate 10 per cent of all DNA Portrait proceeds to Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore’s DNA Foundation in support of the “Real Men” campaign. To participate, simply use the promo code REALMEN when you checkout and we’ll take 15 per cent off your order as a thank you for helping with the cause.

At the end of the campaign, DNA 11 will match all funds raised and donate it to the DNA Foundation.

DNA 11 assisted with the “Real Men” campaign by providing all the the celebrity endorsers — including Justin Timberlake, Drake, Sean Penn and Jamie Foxx — with DNA 11 portraits as thank you gifts. Now we’re looking to do more to help this important cause.

Don’t forget to head over to the DNA Foundation Facebook page where you can see the awesome celebrity videos and even star in one yourself!

We had to keep it on the down low for a while but now that it’s out in the Twittersphere we can talk about it. DNA 11 is proud to have played a small role in Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher’s “Real Men” campaign against child sex slavery.

Working with Demi and Ashton’s DNA Foundation, DNA 11 donated DNA art to the celebrities who participated in the campaign.

Besides being a great cause, it’s also a really well done and funny campaign. Check it out on their Facebook page and don’t forget to watch the videos.

Wow what a weekend.

Last week DNA 11 was in Los Angeles to participate in the 5th Annual Access Hollywood “Stuff You Must…” Lounge where our unique DNA art was a big hit with the Golden Globes celebrities.

“This is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!”

Thank you very much Jennifer Love Hewitt!

Also dropping by the DNA 11 booth to grab their personalized art were cast and crew members from Dexter, True Blood, Mad Men and Entourage as well as stars William Shatner and one of my personal favorites, Neil Patrick Harris! NPH loves DNA 11!

Check out the photo gallery below for all the weekend’s pics.

To wrap up the weekend, DNA 11 co-founder Adrian Salamunovic was on Access Hollywood to present host Billy Bush with his very own DNA Portrait. We’ll post a clip when it becomes available.

Of course the main reason DNA 11 went down to L.A., other than to meet NPH, was to promote our DNA 11 for Charity Program. Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the regard soon.

Elijah Wood - DNA 11 for Charity

DNA 11 has gone Hollywood! We’re in Los Angeles this week promoting our DNA 11 for Charity Program.

We were invited to participate in the 5th Annual Access Hollywood “Stuff You Must…” Lounge which runs January 14-15 at the Sofitel Los Angeles in celebration of the 68th Golden Globe® Awards.  Dozens of celebrities will have the opportunity to create their own personalized artwork from their DNA, fingerprint or lip print.

Because we love to give back, we’re also taking the opportunity to invite the Golden Globes celebrities to join us to raise money for their favorite causes with the DNA 11 for Charity program.

DNA 11 for Charity is a one-of-kind celebrity art auction that creates limited edition prints of a celebrity’s DNA, Fingerprint or KISS print and auctions them off to support their favourite charitable organizations.

We create a limited run of a celebrity’s personalized artwork and auction them off in partnership with eBay Giving Works with 100% of the proceeds going to charity – no risk, no hassle.

Previously, DNA 11 for Charity has partnered with actor Elijah Wood to raise money for The Art of Elysium and with Athlete’s First and NFL quarterback Matt Cassel for the Orangewood Children’s Foundation.

DNA 11 is committed to giving back through its charitable foundation as well the dozens of unaffiliated events and campaign it contributes to every year. For more information visit

ROFLDNA ?? DNA 11 lends a helping hand to a good cause.

A couple of weeks ago the 2nd Annual ROFLCon took place in New York City. It’s a conference dedicated to Internet culture and some of the biggest Internet celebrities came out for the weekend convention… of course there’s always a big party and tons of fun to be had!

This year Alexis Ohanion, co-founder of and breadpig, set up an auction on eBay with a DNA Mini Portrait of all the Internet celebs who came out over the weekend. They’re calling it ROFLDNA and it’s in support of a great charity, Child’s Play.  The portrait will be a mash-up of all the celebrities’ DNA and will have all their signatures.

Looks like they had a blast… check out a few pics below of the DNA collection process and some of the signatures you’ll see on the final piece of DNA Art.

And don’t forget to check back… I’ll post the link to the auction as soon as it goes up.
