Butterflies of Hope 2021
View Virtual Butterflies

On Sunday, June 13, 2021, BFO-Toronto will be hosting our annual butterfly release event, Butterflies of Hope.

This year, the event will be a little bit different. Just like the Butterfly, this event too, must morph and evolve with the changes that are upon us.

Taking place in June rather than September, the event will be a chance to memorialize loved ones through growing butterfly-friendly plants and a virtual butterfly release. This beautiful BFO-Toronto event will spring new life in your garden or balcony, attracting and re-energizing butterflies along their journeys. Please join us for an hour of song, poems, and celebration remembering our loved ones.

Butterfly memorial packages will be mailed out to those who order one and together, as a community, we will have a virtual event from 6:00pm-7:00pm. Your donation will include a virtual butterfly to be displayed on our website with your loved one’s name, a tag with your loved one’s name on it, and everything you will need to plant wildflower seeds. These seeds will grow into a lovely plant where butterflies will rest, before stretching their wings again.

Orders will be accepted until June 6th, giving us time to mail out your package.

We hope that you will join us for this beautiful tradition where we can celebrate the lives of our loved ones who are no longer with us.
