The Happy Mail Project

Hello everyone!

Welcome to The Happy Mail Project fundraising page.

(If this is the first time you're hearing of this project, I invite you to check out where it all started and join our growing Facebook group here.)

We're facing some challenging times right now. The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of us struggling to hold onto our optimism and positivity. After two weeks of unemployment due to workplace closures, and several mini-meltdowns about the state of everything, I decided I needed to do something productive. So I started this project in hopes that my art will help bring some joy to those who need it most.

It goes like this: if you, or someone you know, is in need of a little boost of happy (and let's be honest, who isn't?), send me an address and I'll pop a little piece of my cheerful art in the mail (only Canadian addresses for the time being). That's it. No fee required.

Since launching this project on Facebook, several people have expressed discomfort at accepting this service free of charge. As an artist, I'm so very appreciative that people recognize that my time and skills are valuable and worthy of compensation. Thank you! However, to stretch the happy a little further, I've decided to make this into a fundraiser. Donations will be used to cover the cost of postage and paint so that I can keep sending those Happy Mails. The rest will be donated to the Ottawa Food Bank.

Be well. Be healthy. Be happy.
