Niagara Falls hearts

Niagara Falls is all lit up with hearts to spread love during this difficult time

One of Canada's biggest tourist destinations is trying to spread a little joy during this difficult time with the Niagara Falls' Heart of Hope.

Hope and solidarity are at the centre of the Niagara Fall Tourism's #NiagaraHeartofHope initiative that uses lights from rooms to form heart shapes across the facades of multiple buildings along the waterfront.

The hashtag aims to connect people in and around the area and help them feel better while in self-isolation with a message of hope during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Our hotels and casinos in Niagara Falls are lighting up glowing hearts as a sign of hope and solidarity," reads the Facebook post. "As a community, we are united on the fight to stop the spread of the virus."

To create them, hotels turned off all other lights after dark and isolated a select few to form the hearts.

It wasn't long before people began posting photos of the hearts to their social media using the hashtag.

The messages come at a time when Canadians are doing what they can to keep each other's spirits up through all the uncertainty, which has also resulted in a caremongering initiative aimed at helping fellow residents amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
