It Takes A Village
Chairman Ting and Friends Lend a Hand
May 12, 2020
Applied Arts sent out a request for your "life during Covid-19" stories. Here is the first in our series.
Chairman Ting's Carson Ting has created a limited edition print that showcases the nightly 7 pm ovation for Vancouver's healthcare heroes. It Takes A Village is a collaboration that includes The Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Hemlock Printers who generously donated all prints, plus the donated time and expertise of new production company Kindred & Scout.
Within 2.5 days, $100,000 was raised for the Vancouver Food Bank - who recieve 100% of the proceeds. The initiative has been covered by CTV, Global News, TSN, The Province, Daily Hive, and CKNW, and the response has been astonishing. Fans of It Takes A Village have extended well beyond Western Canada to Germany, Hong Kong and California.
