Barho Bear Hugs

Our community is reeling after the loss of seven little angels, in a horrific house fire, earlier this week. We wanted to contribute in the only way we know how, through the power of connection & the magic of snail mail.

We invite you to write the Barho Family a note of love, support, sympathy or encouragement in this incredibly painful, and difficult time.

You can pick up your free note card at the following writing stations/retail besties from Saturday, February 23rd - Saturday, March 2nd.

  • Fiddleheads Kids Shop, Bedford
  • Duly Noted Stationery, Downtown Halifax
  • Kept, Downtown Dartmouth
  • Coconut Creek, Dartmouth Crossing
  • Bellissimo, North End Halifax
  • Nurtured, North End Halifax
  • Cape & Cowl Comics & Collectibles, Lower Sackville
  • Unlimited Gifts & Things, Upper Tantallon
  • The Nook, Bedford & North End Halifax

In addition to these writing stations, we have dropped off batches of cards to the family's mosque, and to 3 ISANS locations. It is our hope to have as many of the cards written in Arabic, as possible.

P.S. Thank you so much to our dear friends at Fiddleheads Kids Shop for the encouragement to take action <3

P.P.S. Thank you to our friends at Bounty Print for donating the printing, in kind.
