Look for her joy-full energy on the wall soon.

Its my brother – Kwakwee Baker #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! July 16, 2015 #Vancouver

This is my brother, Kwakwee. Its pretty amazing to see him jump for joy, when almost 25 years ago doctors told him he may never walk again after a near fatal car accident. But my brother proved to everyone that anything is possible and here he is today, not only walking, but flying :) Proud of him and all he has accomplished and overcome over the years. Another jump of joy for the mural!

Check out his awesome art work: Kwakwee Baker Artist

This is Kelsey. I met her at one of the Atria Women’s Resource Society SRO’s. She was in right away when I asked her if she wanted to Jump for JOY for the mural. She even asked me if she could volunteer to help when I start putting the posters together for the 18,000 sq ft mural – before I even mentioned that I would need volunteers. I love her enthusiasm and excitement for the project :)

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Mock up for 18,000 sq ft Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Vancouver

Some perspective on how epic this 18,000 sq ft jump photo mural will be…

This is a rough mock up to scale. The small stick figure in the left bottom corner is me jumping for joy… Im 5’6.

Each square is a 6×6 or 4×6 poster, the large section is 20×40 ft

It will take approx. 94 – 6×6 sqf, 42 – 4c6 and 63 – 6×4 photos and one massive 20 x40 to create the mural. Each of those individual posters will be made up of 25 individual sheets of part, cut and asked together before being posted to the wall.
I can’t do this alone, your contributions will help create this amazing wall of jumping joy.

You can be part of this joy filled community project!

Please take the time to pledge, help create and spread massive joy around the world:

Happy Fathers day! Revisiting this adorable father and daughter jump makes me smile. A jump for joy photo shoot is such a sweet gift and memory to share..

Would you like to have a moment like this captured together with your father or daughter (or son, mother, friend, lover..)?

I’m offering a fun couples jump photo shoot, with one enlarged photo to go up on the Vancouver Jump for Joy mural – check it out: http://ow.ly/OAG8o

Have an amazing day!

It’s Wiggy and Two Paws! #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! #DTES #Gastown #Vancouver

Taking the risk to jump is a beautiful metaphor for all aspects of our lives. Jumping is something only we can do for ourselves. When we jump, and we jump for joy, we use our own power and strength to lift ourselves up. When we take the risk to open ourselves up, we inspire others to do the same.

This is Wiggy and her dog Two Paws :) They live in the Arco Hotel (run by Atira) – location of the 18,000 sq ft mural I will be creating this summer. We chose the Hastings Urban Farm, a community garden in the DTES of Vancouver, for her Jump for Joy. We tried to get Two Paws to jump at the same time.. this is as close as we could get :) but fun trying.

This will be one of the photos to go up on the Jump for Joy photo mural – assuming I raise the money to make it happen!

I only have 25 days left to raise funds to make this unique and heartfelt work. If you are inspired by my project and touched by the work I do, please consider contributing a pledge of any amount – every bit helps to spread the JOY!

Watch the video to learn more about the project and how you can take part:

It’s Lynda! #jumpforjoyphoto of the day! Feel the joy :) #Vancouver

This is Lynda. She works for one of Atira’s SRO’s in Gastown. She said she wasn’t sure if she could jump very high.. she can, and you can feel the joy in her jump. So fun! This will look great in the Jump for Joy Photo mural…

Check out the new video I’ve added to the the mural campaign, it will make you smile:
