Tomorrow is the big day – the TBBs will be doing the Extreme Makeover: Kindness Edition 2012 installation at the Foster Farm Family House Homework Club. And apparently lots of cleaning too. Not so excited about that part, but VERY excited to see the design plan come together! I’m also excited that we have some awesome donors who are going to help us decorate The Homework Club with art.
Posterjack.ca is transferring these drawings by three of The Homework Club kids to canvases. Such a great way to ensure that these drawings will last a lifetime.
Sheila Cain has donated a print of one of her amazing pencil drawings – this is “Harley” :-)
Check out Sheila’s Heirloom Drawings to find out how you can work with Sheila to create a graphite drawing of one of your cherished items or keepsakes.
For the second year in a row, artist Matt LeBlanc has donated one of his awesome abstract paintings. It’s currently in transit and will be arriving later today. We won’t actually see it till tomorrow, but it should look a little something like this:
Matt has the hugest heart of anyone I know, and I’m so honoured to call him my friend :-) He has donated paintings to numerous charities and good causes, and a couple of years ago he raised $38,000 for cancer research with his Art For Life Campaign. Earlier this week, Matt resigned from his job at an advertising agency to focus on his art full-time. You might want to snap up one of his paintings now before he becomes uber-famous and charges millions of dollars for his work!
And finally, I thought it would be fun to create a painting for The Homework Club, inspired by our grey & red colour palette.
Thank you Tim & Posterjack.ca, Sheila, and Matt! And also THANK YOU to the following people who donated the last few pieces that we needed to complete our project design:
|Spotlight Hair Studio & Spa||One Ikea side chair|
|Kristin Berit||One Ikea side chair|
|Tina Klein Welsh||Dictionaries|
Sending you all great big virtual hugs!
And seeing as it’s Kindness Week, I think I’ll send out more hugs to everyone, just because :-) It would be great if you would share this video and pass the hugs along to your blog readers. It’s a great way to spread the kindness and make people smile – or cry, because it’s just so darn emotional listening to ♫ Hallelujah ♫ and watching complete strangers hug!
Like Ellen says, Be Kind!
