We need your pictures! St. Paul’s Future Leaders have kicked off a truly unique fundraiser in support of mental health initiatives at St. Paul’s Hospital.

It’s called Pixel Moments and it’s equal parts micro-donation activism, art installation, and interactive video experience. Here’s how it works.

For a minimum donation of $5, you can upload a selfie (or any photo). Each photo will be turned into a single pixel that will become part a giant illustration created by Vancouver artist Andrea Wan.

In early April, the photos will be assembled into a huge, interactive mosaic to be installed above London Drugs at the corner of Granville and West Georgia. The mural measures 60’ by 20’ and you’ll be able to interact with its augmented reality features using your phone.

Pixel by pixel, our collective photos will transform into a digital canvas symbolizing our collective strength and support for mental wellness.

To have your photo included in the installation, go to pixelmoments.org, donate $5 (or more!), and upload your photo by March 21, 2021.

St. Paul's Foundation Future Leaders is an engaged committee of young professionals committed to raising awareness and funds for St. Paul's Foundation. Since 2014, the committee has raised more than $850,000 for Providence Health Care. Support Pixel Moments today.
