"Last year, Covid stole my creativity and I was really lost going into 2021.
I was saved by a tiny orphan goat my husband and I adopted in February. She raised our spirits so much, and those of my friends who were following her story on Facebook, that we formed The Lola Project to raise money for mental health care in Airdrie. The Studio 52 artists created and donated art that we featured on many of our Lola-themed merchandise.
For myself, the project kept me wonderfully busy from March to November, and we raised $5055.09!!! Airdrie Health Foundation put the money towards their Pregnancy and Beyond program to help support new moms who are dealing with a lack of social, mental, and practical tools to help them navigate motherhood in these times of isolation."
