Yoko Ono gives jackets to preschoolers in Iceland

The artist Yoko Ono and the widow of Beatle John Lennon sent winter jackets to children in kindergartens Mýri and Lækjaborg in Reykjavík recently, as a token of gratitude for their performance of “Imagine” last autumn.

The preschoolers performed the song, written by John Lennon, at a special ceremony last October when Yoko Ono blessed the spot where she plans to have a peace obelisk erected on the island Videy on Faxaflói Bay near Reykjavík. Morgunbladid reports.

Ono also sent the preschoolers cards to thank them for their performance. The dark winter jackets are quite large, so they will come in handy when the children start school next autumn.
