OUR CITY. TORONTO STRONG.
On a beautiful spring day, Toronto suffered the unimaginable. A senseless act that left our city, nation, and the world mourning over the loss of our dear community members. Our hearts swell over this unspeakable news. Today. Everyday. We remember our dear neighbours that have been affected. We wish words can express our sorrow, our heart break, and ultimately, our frustration...but there are none. We lost 10 of our very own.
We cannot change the unfortunate reality, but in efforts to help heal our community that has been affected, we hope to play a small part in our big city to nourish and heal our shattered hearts. We are here for you, Toronto.
A single blue heart button graced above our hearts are our symbol of love and strength, community and support.
Over the month of May and beyond, the Blossom and Bloom team is dedicated towards harnessing our society's strength through community creative workshops as a means to heal and nourish all who may have been affected. With open hearts, we welcome you to join us in remembering those affected by the tragedy and cultivate all the strength and love that may help you in your healing process. Each workshop will include the following components:
. Welcome and Introduction
. Light Craft Session
. Music and Poetry
. Light Craft Session
. Session Complete
**Workshop location and schedule coming soon**
There is no charge to our workshops, but if you would like to make a donation, please visit the Toronto Foundation fund, which is the official fundraising platform setup by the City to support the victims. All proceeds originally raised from our GoFundMe page and all funds raised from our #BlueHeart button campaign will be donated to the Toronto Foundation fund. For those who are interested in picking up a Blue Heart button, please visit us at our next market events. The button pins will be on sale for $1 each.
