Kids artwork raising funds for COVID-19 relief

Now here’s a feel-good story sure to tug at your heartstrings. No doubt you’ve seen all those “Thank you, frontline workers!” and “Hang in there” COVID-19 relief messages from kids – hanging in windows, over garages or written in chalk on sidewalks.

Toronto developer Devron Developments and other real estate companies have decided to turn this artwork into opportunities for charitable giving.

Devron has launched the “A Big Picture” art contest, asking children across Ontario to draw or paint positive messages related to the COVID-19 crisis. More than 50 entries have been submitted so far.

One young artist will be chosen as the winner for producing the most heart-warming and inspiring message. Their artwork will be displayed and illuminated on a large billboard at 1140 Yonge St., in the heart of midtown Toronto.

The top three winners will help select three local charities to whom donations will be made. As of the first week of May, at least $45,000 had been raised.
