We all remember our own from childhood. Lovies become family members.
They’ve been loved so hard they’re threadbare, their soft patinas a true testament to the vigor of a child’s love. They are best friends who have absorbed a river of childhood tears. Classic Kids believes they are also art.
From now until April 30th, Classic Kids is photographing Lovies in exchange for the donation of a brand new Lovie for a child without one. Donated Lovies will become best friends with the children seeking shelter at The Primo Center for Homeless Women & Children on Chicago’s West Side.
Families will have the opportunity to have canvas prints made from the photos which make beautiful art pieces for decorating the home. A portion of the print proceeds will go to purchasing more Lovies for the Center’s children.
Julie Floyd, owner of Classic Kids, notes that “This is a great opportunity for people to create meaningful, modern artwork for their home. These pieces are not only beautiful, but they tell a wonderful story. They are sure to be conversation pieces.” Adds Floyd, “It is a wonderful opportunity to give a little warmth and comfort to children without a permanent home.”
