Your Support Enables Us to Continue with Our Mission
KIFARU premiere screening raises more than $4000 for Silvia Knittel Memorial Scholarship, to ensure that young Kenyan students can complete their high school educations.
The Foundation was so honoured to help fundraise for this game-changing and important initiative.
For each $10 donation, you will receive one chance to win one of four prizes. All proceeds go to support Food for Thought programs.
The Foundation is so grateful for the response from the community, but we still need help.
Please donate if you can.
FIRST PLACE - SASHA KHRYSTENOK
These two pieces, painted on a pizza box in acrylic paint, were based on my experiences during the current pandemic. The interior of the box is an abstraction of a bustling cityscape, inspired by Times Square. While I have never been to Times Square, I do live in Vancouver, and one of the things I miss the most from before COVID is going downtown and feeling a sense of community within the large crowd.
On the exterior is a self-portrait surrounded by other elements: small cartoon people and stars, inspired by things I've doodled in my sketchbook during quarantine.
Choose Kindness or Be Kind

The Langley School District Foundation is proud to suppot and facilitate the Cards for Seniors Program.
The Cards for Seniors program is run 100% by volunteers and coordinated by the Langley Volunteer Bureau. Blank, hand-made or pre-printed cards are delivered to schools across Langley and grades K through 12 participate in designing and writing a special message to each senior. 100% of all donations are used to purchase card-making supplies, envelopes, postage, and printing costs. For each dollar donated, one senior receives a card!

I was trying to show the distortions through the water reflection, as a way of showing how we are coping through COVID 19.

Tote Bag Sale

SECOND PLACE - EMILY PARSONS
I chose to create a sculpture that resembles the shape of a person grieving. I wanted to show how grief can make someone feel tired, and that they lack all energy. It knocks everything out of a person and can be difficult to get back up again after.
HONORABLE MENTION - KAYCEE M
The piece I have designed is a fairy. She is stuck inside due to the crazy storm happening all around her. She is longing to fly once again as she awaits the dark sky to clear. I chose the fairy because to me it represents my love for exploring which I am currently unable to do due to the pandemic. The fairy is a reflection of me and my adventurous spirit.
