Create Paper Doves of Hope

Pebble Tossers and the Spruill Center for the Arts are teaming up on a joint project to make Origami Doves of Hope. Our goal is to make and then install 2021 doves in the entryway of the Spruill Center for the Arts. The inspiration for our project comes from German artist Michael Pendry. Just before Christmas, he installed the Les Colombes exhibit: a winding column of more than 2,000 origami paper doves in the grand nave of Washington National Cathedral. Symbolizing hope and the Holy Spirit, the doves encourage a feeling of optimism as we end a challenging 2020 and begin a new year according to the artist.

How to participate: This is open to NonPebble Tossers Members.
1. Make your white paper doves from home and follow the instructions found here or click here for an instructional video. You can do this any day in January as long as they are delivered by Jan. 29.

2. Before you fold them, in the center of the paper, write an inspirational note or a message of hope for 2021.

3. Drop off your white paper doves by Jan. 29 at the Spruill Center for the Arts in one of the collection bins as you enter the building.

Thoughtful Notes for InCommunity

InCommunity provides care and support to those with developmental and intellectual disabilities (IDD). InCommunity is a consistent part of their lives where they see their friends, interact with the community & arts, and practice daily living skills. Due to COVID regulations, all of this has changed.

What Volunteers Can Do: The InCommunity clients and the staff that care of them on the frontlines would love to hear some encouragement from their community!
Help spread the love. Send a thoughtful note to those who are still working hard to support individuals in their homes and to those who are being cared for who long for a sense of normalcy. Taking a moment to say thank you or sending a note to say we appreciate you can go a long way!

How it Works
- Grab a card, postcard or piece of paper for the letter - don't forget an envelope!
- Write your letter or letters, there's no limit to how many you can do!

Letter Writing Tips:

-Start with a salutation, such as "Dear friend" or "Greetings", "Dear Healthcare Worker"


-Send a personal message with an individual in our home: "You are not alone. We are in this together" or "Hang in there. We hope you are safe and healthy." Or share a note to a healthcare provider to say: "Thanks for your dedication and hard work".

-Please avoid glitter or additional items in the envelope.
