"Bringing nature indoors to healthcare facilities"

About Us

The FORGET FOR A MOMENT FOUNDATION, based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, is a registered charity founded in 2012. We collect funds to finance, build, and ensure a part of the ongoing maintenance of natural structures located in health care facilities.

Our Story

The FORGET FOR A MOMENT FOUNDATION grew out of a desire to give sick children and their parents or caregivers a natural, healthy, and delightful mosaïculture garden or a living wall that would attract and distract children, giving them a momentary break from their fear, pain, and stress.

Our First Project – The Dream Becomes a Reality

Our first project was completed on January 19, 2017 with the installation of a living wall which was donated to the CHSLD Bon Séjour Long-Term Care Centre in Gatineau, Quebec. The wall stands just over eight feet high, four feet wide and 28 inches deep.
