Spring Care Cards Fundraiser
This Spring Lakeshore Arts is sending a note of encouragement in form of illustrated cards to community members through contributions raised in their Spring Care Cards Fundraiser. Even though we are physically separated from our loved ones and community, we can still let them know we are thinking of them. What better way than through a card?
Ways you can support and uplift someone in your life and your community:
Mother-like figures are our first and best example. This image shows how the people we look up to are with us with every step of the way, no matter how old we are. This card was inspired by the winding paths through Toronto’s High Park.
Wrapped in Love
If COVID-19 means we can’t yet hug in person, this card illustrates the hug we are all waiting for because everyone is living with their loved ones during the lockdown. This design is a staged imaginary reunion in front of the swirling colours of the Eighth Street SkatePark Mural in Etobicoke, created by mural artist Flips.
A thriving flower, the Bloodroot is one of the first flowers in Southern Ontario to pop up in spring, when the ground is still cold and covered in old fall leaves. The taller flowers curl their leaves around the smaller ones, like a mother hugging her child. It symbolizes strength, growth and protective love.
A single card: $9 each
A card set (of all 3 designs): $25 each
The cards have an illustrated image at the front and are blank on the inside to let you customize your message if making a purchase for a loved one.
These cards have been uniquely designed for LSA’s Spring Fundraiser by local artist and illustrator Alison Garwood-Jones.
Your donations and support ensure that we remain: Open to finding new ways in which to collaborate with and employ artists and arts facilitators; Open to shifting, creating, and re-imagining programming with intention and purpose; and Open to exploring new ways of engaging communities during and post-COVID.
Consider adding $5, $10 or $50 to your card purchase in support of Lakeshore Arts and our efforts to continue to positively impact our communities through art.
