It has been 6 months since starting my “Heart As Big As Yours” art project for the Love Your Sister charity. It has been an amazing journey that continues to unfold, leading me to many beautiful places and amazing people that share the same vision of seeing Cancer gone for good. When I began the project I started with my immediate circle of family and friends to buy a heart and now that news is spreading like wild fire I am opening up to the local community to help me complete the artwork in record time. Why the rush you ask? As mentioned in my last blog Connie the co founder of Love Your Sister has ceased all cancer treatments and is now in her last stages, she expressed her personal wish to see the art work complete and I made a promise that I would make her wish a reality. I have given myself 3 months to fast track my project searching for generous donors and sponsors to add their heart imprint to the art installation that will be on permanent display at the Garvan Institute in Sydney.
To be part of this life changing art project I have arranged a series of events that you and your family are invited to attend. I look forward to seeing you there!
Heart Imprint days- 7th and 8th of July
We will be hosting 2 Imprint days at our Lilyfield studio on Friday the 7th of July and Saturday the 8th of July from 10:00am-3:00pm. This is a family friendly event and there will be music food and kids face painting and balloon making between 11am-1pm on the Saturday event. If you wish to attend please register your interest here.
One heart is a $50 donation and includes your initials and a map locating your heart. Donate directly by clicking here and to make an appointment to have your heart imprint taken. If you are unable to come in no worries! We can create a heart for you and put your initials on the tile.
Why not get your spouse/loved one, friend or child to share a heart with you! each fingerprint is $25 each and includes both your initials and a map locating your heart.
Gift Vouchers: The perfect gift for someone who has everything! Purchase a heart online and make your way down to one of our Imprint open days to create your heart. Or call (02)9555 9500 to make an appointment between Tuesday-Saturday.
Do you own a business or run a company? Are you well connected in your industry or are you just a very generous soul who believes in this project?
If you have answered yes, then why not get a team together and sponsor an entire frame. Each frame consists of 81 hearts and the total donation is $4050. Each frame is mapped alphabetically so depending on availability you can sponsor a frame that is connected with the first letter of your business/company or family. For example my husband works for the insurance giant IAG so I have approached his company to purchase the “I” frame. The CEO or business owner will take the central heart in the frame surrounded by staff or family. A brilliant way to leave a lasting legacy.
Morning tea fundraiser
Do you have a friend or loved one who’s life has been affected by cancer? If so we are hosting private morning tea fundraisers in honour of your friend or loved one at a nominated home, work or location of your choice.
