Take a photo of a snowman for charity!

I spotted the first one at Roy Thompson Hall but didn't think much about it.. I just took the photo of it because i liked cute sculptures.  But when I saw the second snowman sculpture at Campbell House Museum and a third at City Hall, I realized there was more to this.

It turns out that these are charity snowmen sculptures.  Each snowman photo that is emailed to or texted to 647TagSnow will result in $2 to be donated to Starlight Children's Foundation whose mandate is to improve "the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries by providing entertainment, education and family activities that help them cope with the pain, fear and isolation of prolonged illness."

Now I'm on a quest to capture more snowmen sculptures.  I'll try to catch all the ones downtown at least but they seem to be all over the GTA:
  1. Roy Thompson Hall - King & Simcoe
  2. Campbell House - Queen & University
  3. City Hall - Queen & Bay
  4. St Lawrence Market - Berczy Park (Wellington & Scott)
  5. CN Tower (Bremmer Rd & Rees St)
  6. Greektown - Danforth & Logan
  7. Church & Wellesley
  8. Yorkville - Cumberland & Bellair
  9. Distillery District
  10. York St & Queens Quay
  11. Delta Chelsea Inn - Yonge & Gerrard
  12. Eglinton East of Dufferin
  13. Science Centre
  14. Toronto Zoo
  15. Mississauga - Celebration Square
  16. Brampton - Gage Park
  17. Airport
  18. Port Credit - Elmwood & Lakeshore
Like the moose, this is great for tourism and a win for children's charity.
