Gifts of Heart
Show your support to frontline workers by giving them the joy of art
Like you, we wish we could experience the immense joy of strolling through the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair (TOAF) on Nathan Phillips Square this summer. Alas, it’s not to be. Countless cherished artists are currently affected by cancellations and financial hardships.
Also, many of us would like to express our appreciation to our healthcare workers. I invite you to help TOAF in gifting art to those who have been keeping us all safe and to support the 300+ artists chosen to participate in Toronto Online Art Fair 2020.
Here is how:
- Give a tax-deductible charitable gift (any amount your heart desires) towards gift cards (valued at $250 each) that TOAF distributes frontline workers for art purchases.
- Frontline workers will use their gift cards to buy a beautiful piece of art directly from artists on the TOAF website July 2 to 12, 2020.
- The artists will send out the artwork along with their heartfelt thanks and receive the full value of the Gift ($250) when redeemed.
With the help of only 400 generous donors who give $250 each (or 1,000 who give $100 each!) we can provide Gifts of Heart to 400 frontline workers, while also providing $100,000 in much-needed support to the participating artists.
Clap your hands, shout your thanks, and be a Gifts of Heart champion by making a gift from your heart.
