Quiet the world through art and a book.
There are many sounds in the world we could all do without – a poorly played violin, racoons fighting in the middle of the night (it’s similar to a piercing scream), or a Zoom call with no mute control. But, at the top of the list, I’m sure we can all agree, is the whining of an “I’m soooo boored” child. (insert hand down emoji)
Well, it’s not just the kids who are bored these days. The residents of Arrabon House, a group home to women aged 13-19, are struggling with the monotony of social isolation. Many of these youths have experienced trauma and are dealing with mental health issues. As social distancing becomes the norm, boredom and isolation won’t let up any time soon. They need a distraction to pandemic life in a big way.
How you can help
We’re pooling funds for a $25 Indigo gift card for each resident at Arrabon House to purchase a new book. We’re also putting the call out to all art-loving neighbours interested in donating art supplies like craft paper, paints, brushes, canvases, yarn etc to Arrabon House. Help be the quiet in a pandemic storm for these young adults.
