When you buy one or several pieces of the virtual puzzle, you are giving access to nature at the Orléans Health Hub and wings to the living wall. As a contributor to Forget for a Moment Foundation we make sure your donation goes directly to supporting our project.
Measuring 27 square meters (300 square feet), this wall is the first in Canada, in that it is a living wall representing a beautiful Monarch butterfly wing, adorned with coloured blown glass bubbles. The blown glass bubbles were made by Jean-Simon Trottier, an accomplished glassblower, who ranks among the best in Canada.
There were modifications to the colors of the blown glass bubbles at the request of the Orléans Health Hub's Senior Services, and to the choice of foliage depending on what the company has selected for the wall.
Although we’re happy and grateful to accept donations of any amount, these values will help us to complete the butterfly in no time! To donate less than the suggested amounts, simply change the amount.
The beneficial effects of nature and plants have been proven by many studies. Patients and personnel show reduced stress and anxiety, faster recovery and a better quality of life.
You can help give access to nature at the Orléans Health Hub by buying one of the pieces of the virtual jigsaw and give wings to the living wall.
