Trinity Bellwoods Park in Toronto is known for it's few albino squirrels.
The white squirrels indigenous to this area add a feeling of wonder and mystery to this park that locals may experience if the moment's right.
The squirrel's large kaleidoscopic eye keeps watch over passers by. As it rests on a traditional Lovebot heart, it helps to solidify our fascination and love of these small, magestic creatures."

LOVEBOT x Poser Mural @ 289 College St.
Two of Toronto’s most loved public artists, LOVEBOT and PoserABM, have come together to create a collaborative mural, and we have the whole thing on camera.
Combining their robotic and playful styles, the mural features one of Poser’s notorious rabbit/bear’s (It started as a bear by the way) riding on the wing of a giant iconic LOVEBOT that’s seemingly morphed into a fighter jet.
Both artists have expressed hope that the piece will bring some attention to the potential benefits high quality and positive murals can bring to a community. “I really hope it brings attention to this artform. Me personally, I love showing people that it’s not just scribbles on a wall, that on top of tagging I am capable of doing these incredible murals,” Poser said, adding that introducing public art to a wider audience is always a goal to strive for.
Rain delayed much of the mural’s production, but LOVEBOT creator Matthew Del Degan says that it didn’t dampen moods. “It only [left] us one day to finish it before I headed off to Montreal to smash through another one.” Thankfully, Del Degan says, Poser was able to finish his portion in only one night. “He’s such a quick and powerful artist.”
With little time to spare, Del Degan now heads north to take part in Montreal’s annual Mural Festival, taking place from June 4 to 14.
I’m always out and about expressing my love, but this Valentine’s, you can too!
Come mid-February, Lovebot Hero Heart cookies will be at popping up at locations across Toronto! All proceeds are going to some real good friends of mine, Easter Seals, a charitable organization bringing love to others by helping kids with physical disabilities.
Since 1922, through both financial assistance and recreational programs, Easter Seals has helped provide a better life for youth with physical disabilities.
It’s great to see such selfless organizations making such strong effort in spreading the love, really tugs at your heart wires.
It doesn’t stop at cookies though. I’ve also been helping with the organization’s annual telethon, a fundraiser celebrating success stories and recognizing ambassadors, families, and donors that have helped the organization. It’s all love with them! During last year’s 31st annual 2014 telethon, Lovebot was there to help Easter Seals raise a whopping $2.16-million! So, get out and support a great cause that makes a difference to the over 20,000 kids in with physical disabilities. Let’s beat last years total!
Lovebot is such a perfect cupid bringing us together for another worthy cause," says Shawn Andrews of Rooster Coffee. "We're excited to be part of this community effort based on LOVE and giving!"
You can support Lovebot and Easter Seals by purchasing an lovingly-packaged Hero Heart cookie for $2. Starting Ferbruary 12th, you’ll be able to find these special treats for you or the people you love at the these locations:
Want to see Lovebot cookies at your local coffee shop or cafe? Please ask them to get in touch! We'd love to have them available in as many locations as possible.
Want a whole box? You can purchase a full box of 30 cookies for $60 that you can share in your workplace or community, I’ll get the humans to deliver them right to your door! Easter Seals will also offer a tax-deductible receipt for these supporters.
Easter Seals is wonderful, but you know where they get a lot of their money? People that go out and actively share the message of positivity and love! So this year, instead of buying the same old material goods you always do, take a page from my book. Break the mold and do something different. Help share the love! Get your loved ones a tasty treat while supporting an awesome cause.
Together, we are helping kids BE KIDS!

This February, The Lovebot Leaders, led by Matthew Del Degan came up with a new way to spread kindness throughout the city of Toronto.
They wanted to take Valentines day back to basics, away from commercialization, and focus on it's original goal: spreading love .
The Leaders did this by sharing Lovebot hero-heart cookie cutters with local bakeries. In doing so they were able to help in sharing the message of the Love Invasion by baking warm hero-heart cookies to give to their communities.
In addition, the Leaders also baked well over 2000 cookies to share with family, friends and strangers.
