Although many are staying indoors, the outside world is lighting up with signs of hope and love. Across Toronto, glowing hearts have been appearing on the side of hotels and other building to help spread some love during these hard times. Toronto's heart signs have been the perfect gesture to encourage residents to stay strong. 

Near the beginning of the pandemic in Toronto, photos began popping up on social media of heart shapes shining through windows at popular hotels including the Hilton, Fairmont Royal York, and the Sheraton.  

According to the Hilton's Instagram page, these bright lights are meant to help encourage and send hope to those around the globe during these trying times. 

"We’re joining with hotels across the world to light up our windows with a message of love and hope for everyone around the globe," the company stated

However, these bright lights aren't just meant to spread hope, but to also give tribute to frontline workers. 

The Fairmont announced that they would even be opening their doors to frontline workers who need rooms to sleep in.


"Our front-line workers have been working relentless to care for others," says a post from their Instagram page

"With our Rest Safe program, we are opening our doors to welcome front line hospital workers as our guests."

 

The CN tower is another notable landmark that has lit up with hearts during the pandemic.

The famous tower stars in a regular light show that is meant to spread hope to those who are currently stuck indoors.

 

 

 

 

 

It's not just light shows that are spreading hope throughout local communities.

Since COVID-19 began, tons of cute and inspirational examples of community support have been seen online.

From compassionate landlords letting rent slide to restaurants giving away free food to those that need it, Torontonians are standing together in whatever way they can. 


Residents across Toronto have also been showing support for healthcare workers on a daily basis by banging pots and pans together as a daily thank you to front line medical staff.
