People from around the world have begun leaving out their stuffed animals on their doorsteps and window sills to honour the seven children who perished in a Halifax house fire .
Andrea Bennett started the movement with her cousin and she told CTVNews.ca theyve been overwhelmed with the amount of support this small gesture has brought.
Her effort started as a way to honour each of the children of the Barho family, which had recently moved to Nova Scotia in September 2017 after fleeing war-torn Syria. The youngest of the seven children was only three months old with the oldest being 14.
