Student Art Project Raises Funds for Human Rights Museum

Shine Pin - Kildonan Place - Human Rights MuseumThe ceiling of Kildonan Place Shopping Centre is a little bit brighter these days, as middle years students from the River East Transcona School Division aim to raise funds and recognition for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights

From now until June 6, as part of the mall’s “Count the Stars” project, hundreds of paintings in the shape of the museum’s “Shine” pin will be hanging from the ceiling of the shopping centre.

Customers who donate a minimum of $2 can guess how many stars are in the Kildonan Place sky. The customer with a guess closest to the actual total of stars will win $500 in Kildonan Place gift cards. CMHR “Shine” pins are available at Guest Services for a donation of $5 to support the cause. All proceeds from the contest and pin sales will go towards the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

“The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is going to change the landscape of tolerance within our city. That’s why Kildonan Place is excited to launch this fundraiser,” said Corey Quintaine, Kildonan Place Marketing Director. “It’s important that we involved our local youth within the process – change happens one community at a time.”

Customers are encouraged to make their donation and fill out their ballot at Guest Services prior to the contest close on June 6
