Insiyah Paints It for healthcare

Insiyah was born at 26 weeks, weighing only 1lb 6oz. She spent 3 months in Royal Columbian’s Variety NICU. 13 years later, Insiyah was painting rocks during the pandemic with a calming quote from Dr. Bonnie Henry when she had an idea.

She began selling her painted rocks as way to fundraise money to purchase equipment for the NICU. Insiyah’s fundraiser was such a success that she exceeded her goal and raised over $5000!

Gina Photographs It for healthcare

Gina Spanos started the Front Steps project as a unique way to support Royal Columbian Hospital during the COVID-19 pandemic. As part of the project, Gina photographed families at their homes from a safe distance, donating her time in return for a gift to the Foundation.

“My Front Steps Project was born from a desire to give back and help the hospital during such a difficult time. My goal was to put a smile on the faces of the families I worked with, to spread love and joy through my photography, and to bring the community together. I am grateful to all of the families who took part in my Front Steps Project.” – Gina Spanos, photographer

Our thanks to Gina, who raised over $5,000 through her initiative!
