The University Hopsitals Kingston Foundation has launched a new fundraiser to help remind everyone what their smile looks like during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Foundation is selling buttons with residents' smiles on them, which they said will be helpful to connect with residents while wearing a face covering. 

"From hospitals to restaurants to banks to schools, many employees can use the buttons to better connect with customers and patients," the foundation said in a statement. 

"This campaign is such a clever way to give a face and personal connection back to the people in our industry and community," Owner of The Mansion Kingston, Casey Fisher, said in a statement. 

"The pandemic has masked these traits since our reopening in June, and we are excited to share our smiles again."

Buttons are $5 each with all proceeds supporting Kingston Health Sciences Centre and Providence Care. 

The buttons are available for purchase online or those interested can get in touch with Jeremy Clark at jeremy.clark@uhkf.ca or 613-549-5452.
