DONOR SPOTLIGHT- OTTAWA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT AUTHORITY
On February 18th, 2011, seven Ottawa Designers descended on the The Good Companions center in downtown Ottawa with ladders, hammers, dusters and our talent. We were there to begin the transformation of the foyer, reception area and a small store being moved to just beyond the reception area. The staff and seniors using the center required a more open, friendly and comfortable area in which to gather. Our team leader, Sonya Kinkade of Sonya Kinkade Design had been approached in December by The Yummy Mummy Club in conjunction with The United Way to undertake this project for Extreme Makeover Kindness Edition during Kindness Week in Ottawa.
This endeavour was to be accomplished entirely with donations and sponsors from the Ottawa community. Not a small task. We needed construction, paint, furniture, accessories, flowers and a photographer to document the process. The reveal was scheduled for Feb 19th.

“Participating in Kindness Week and supporting the Good Companion Centre is a pleasure, and it was an easy decision to make. It is very much in line with the Authority's organizational values and the donated furniture will be put to loving use by those who rely on and enjoy what the Centre has to offer.”
"The Authority recently celebrated the Ottawa Airport being named first in the world for Customer satisfaction among airports that serve between 2 and 5 million passengers. The Authority shares the honour with the entire airport campus and with the community."
