Love Floats Around Calgary

"We're just from the Sikh community and we're just spreading love on Valentine's Day to you." 

With smiles on their faces, balloons in their hands, and freezing wind on everything, these friends set out to spread love. 

"Hopefully we can mask the sagginess of the balloons with the energy we're going to be bringing today to people." Said Yuvraj Singh one of the volunteers who handed out 150 balloons. 
One volunteers offers a baloon to a stranger by simply saying, "We're just from the Sikh community and we're just spreading love on Valentine's Day to you." 

According to Yuvraj they are, "Here in the heart of Calgary, on Valentine's Day, to spread the love of humanity, not just spreading the love of your romantic partner."  Saying that regardless of relationship status, race or sexual orientation, everyone deserves care and attention. 

Anne Gray recieved a balloon, "I think it's a fabulous idea because there's a lot of us who aren't in couples." 
A warm gesture appreciated by many facing weather in the negative double digits. 

Adrian Guevara who recieved a balloon says, "There's always more of that the world could use so I always appreciate when anyone takes the time to do anything like that." 

Canadians increased Valentine's spending by 23% between 2016 and 2018, according the mastercard, but these people are just as pleased with this small sentiment, "Those two ladies, they gave me a smile and they gave me a balloon so what else can I ask for." Said Carolina Avenzano.
Some are even spreading the love, "I thought it was a lovely gesture and I gave her a hug, because I'm a hugger. It made my day."
