Why are we making these “Blowing Kisses” pictures?
Some of our friends in Attawapiskat, Ontario need to know that they are loved. Recently, there have been a lot of deaths in this small community and some of the residents are really sad. We want to send them these “Blowing Kisses” pictures to help make their day a bit brighter.
We started by sending Kindness Cards with messages like, “I hope that you enjoy this Kindness Card. I hope that it makes your day a bit brighter. I want you to know that I am thinking about you and hope that things get better soon.” The youth in Attawapiskat really enjoyed receiving these cards, they did make their day a bit brighter. We thought that these pictures would send an even stronger message to the youth in Attawapiskat that there are kids in Ottawa who care about them and who are thinking about them.
Our friends at Annie & Company are driving a truck of donated items up to Timmins at the end of May, where the items will be flown to Attawapiskat. We will be dropping these “Blowing Kisses” pictures off at their storage unit on Saturday, May 21 so that they are guaranteed to be included in the shipment.
