About Lola and "The Lola Project"
On February 2, 2021 two little goats were born on an Alberta farm. Sadly, their mother died, but soon the little orphans found their way into two homes near Airdrie, Alberta. We brought home the tiny weakest one.
Throughout her little journey with us, we have heard from so many people about how she has brightened their days. We knew she was helping us, but we had no idea of the effect she had on others until the comments started appearing on her posts about how she was helping people's mental health.
One comment in particular stood out:
"This little Darling has done so much for mental health in so many people ...Thank you just seems to be inadequate at this time."
It got Wayne and I thinking of a way that we could do more good with Lola. After some research, we came up with a goal and a charity. The members of Studio 52 jumped on board without hesitation.
And here we go - the announcement you have been waiting for!!
Wayne, myself, and the members of Studio 52 are beyond excited to launch The Lola Project!! The beneficiary will be the Airdrie Health Foundation which provides support to the community through urgent health needs, one of which is mental health. What a perfect fit for our little Lola.
We artists of Studio 52 are busy creating Lola art which will be donated for use on Lola merchandise. Our writer member of Studio 52 is creating a children's book. I've sourced local businesses in Airdrie for as much of the merchandise production as I can (as well as our logo design)
The Lola Project will run from March 1 - December 31, 2021 at which time her merchandise will no longer be offered. Net proceeds of all sales will be donated to the Airdrie Health Foundation.
