Warm Hearts

February 8, 2012 at 6:41 pm 2 comments

Warm Hearts is a campaign for Iris Kirby House in St. John’s, a shelter for women and children. In December, Telegram arts and lifestyles reporter Tara Bradbury visited the shelter as part of her three-part series “Violence at Home,” and felt compelled to try to help in some way.

Through Warm Hearts, The Telegram is collecting pyjamas, blankets, underwear, socks, slippers, housecoats, hats, scarves and mittens in various sizes for women and children (new items only, please), and gift certificates to local coffee shops — all things the shelter can use to provide warmth to its residents this winter. We’re also collecting personal care items like shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

“Republic of Doyle” actress Lynda Boyd is the official patron of the Warm Hearts campaign and today we can see her in The Telegram, with some of the donations readers have contributed to the campaign so far. Doesn’t she look fabulous?! We are proud to say that she is wearing Smink mineral makeup and that our own Bobby did her makeup for this shoot! 🙂

Here is how Bobby describes it: I used Blow Me Down and a bit of Switchel as a crease color and Blow Me Down as a lower liner, with a bit of Lassy to deepen it. I used Duff as a base and lid color, and Nish and Winterton as a brow highlight. For blush I used Lamanche and Lushes Bight, and then L’uh on the lips, but she had a bright pink lip stain on already that wouldn’t come off so it changed the color on her lips quite a bit.

On Feb 24 The Telegram presents “Stars for Warm Hearts” at the St. John’s Arts and Culture Centre,  with all proceeds going to Iris Kirby House. You should go! It will be fantastic with stars such as The Novaks, Chris Kirby and the Marquee, Ian Foster, Jerry Stamp, Kim Wempe, The Long Distance Runners and Mary Barry as well as electro-pop-rock band Repartee, comedian John Sheehan — also known as the bayman in Capital Mitsubishi’s “Townie vs Bayman” ads — and The Neighbourhood Strays gypsy-style bellydance troupe (Tval LOVES the Strays! Loves!!)

*Sigh* I wish I was in St. John’s….
