Layne Collinson is “addicted” to hearts and is using her artistic talent to help people in need.

The ‘Hearts for the Homeless’ campaign will benefit the Manna Homeless Society through sales of Collinson’s stained glass hearts.

“It’s because I do love hearts and I absolutely love Robin Campbell [Manna Homeless Society president] and I’ve been working with him for years now and he’s just a saint,” she said.

The hearts are available for purchase through Feb. 18 at Qualicum Stationers, Arbutus Fashions and Sea Thrift Artisan Boutique in Qualicum Beach, and at Pacific Moon Rising inside Pacific Shores Resort in Nanoose Bay.

A fundraiser evening is planned for Feb. 8 at Pacific Moon Rising at 5 p.m.

Collinson and Campbell will both speak and there will also be a scavenger hunt.

Fifty per cent of sales go to Manna, while the other half goes to purchase supplies to make more hearts.
