Judy Drabik is a retired nurse who started making stained glass crane art for our frontline workers. 

In hopes of raising the spirits of our hard-working nurses here in Manitoba, Judy has made hundreds of cranes for so many of our dedicated nurses. 

The cranes are a symbol of hope and healing, and Judy hopes they have brought a little bit of light in a very challenging time. She has made over 600 cranes in total, which take approximately 1.5 hours each to make. 

She has spent nearly 1000 hours and $12,000 of her own money making the cranes. That’s a pretty remarkable gesture!

Thank you for all your hard work and dedication, and for bringing some beauty into our world during these times, and especially for honouring those who have been working the hardest.
