Barbara Turnbull's friends in St. Lawrence Market want to plant a tree in her honour honour in the park where many of us met and became friends with her.

She was a remarkable person who in the park was just "Barb" but to Canada, an inspiring overcomer

SUBJECT: Raising money for a memorial to the late Barbara Turnbull

WHAT YOUR DONATION WILL DO: Plant a tree (with a plaque) in honour of Barb

APPROXIMATE COST: $1,000

I'm just one of many St. James Park friends of Barbara Turnbull who want to plant a tree in her memory in the park.

Many of us met Barb when she'd ask,"Would you mind picking up Bella's poop?" Over time, as we talked more to hear we learned what a remarkable person she was.

Barb was an inspirational overcomer who was struck by tragedy 32 years ago when as an 18 year old was brutally shot in the neck during a robbery. She didn't let that stop her and went gone on to live a remarkable and accomplished life.

A few months ago Barb was suddenly taken from us and we want to remember her by planting a tree in her  memory in the park in the St. Lawrence Market she loved so much.

It is estimated we'll need $1,000 to plant a tree (handled by the City of Toronto) beside the St. James Cathedral where she usually brought Bella and Rudy over the years.

If we raise more than is needed, anything over that will be donated to The Barbara Turnbull Foundation for Spinal Cord Research

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask and we'll respond as soon as we can.

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US REMEMBER THIS REMARKABLE CANADIAN.
