Coronavirus: Photo fundraiser sweeping North America comes to Okanagan

A photo fundraiser that started in the United States in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic has made its way to the Okanagan.

“As soon as I saw it, I knew Kelowna would be interested in something like this,” said Michele Dyson, owner and operator of White Linen Photography.

Dyson first came across the Front Steps Project campaign on social media and was instantly interested in getting it going in Kelowna.

“The fact we can raise money for people in the community . . . makes everyone happy,” Dyson said. “We really need to help each other out right now.”

The Front Steps Project started on March 17 by a photographer and her friend in Massachusetts.

Within hours, photographers all over America and Canada started jumping on board, including Dyson.

The initiative has photographers coming to people’s homes and taking photos of families on their front steps.
