I was asked to write about a great contest that is going on. And I was all "contest? I never win those and they are all for those lucky US readers!" But I was wrong. What? There is a first time for everything. So The nice thing about it is that it is a Canadian contest, so I can actually see and even follow this contest to see what comes of it. Aviva Community Fund The Aviva Community Fund Charity Contest. It's amazing the passion of these people, you have to take a look.
The goal of the contest is to make a difference by helping people, who are pasionate about helpng others, and get them to make positive changes in their communities. This is so important to me. As a parent I really want Pork Chop to learn to help others. I will always remember the golden rule "Due unto others as you would have done unto you." And I hope that Hubby and I have shown him how we need to think of others. We did get the chance to do a little good as a family when we held a baking class for charity. And I really wish we could do more. And in reading about all the things people have entered for, it really would be hard to choose just one.
What is important to me is family, and there are many great causes out there. I think that any cause that helps promote family and supports them in any way is something I can stand behind. Weather it be a cause to help build a long term care home to keep families closer together. Or to make hospitals more comfortable for loved ones, there are so many great things that people are doing. And I can help them just with a vote.
You can vote two ways. You have to be Canadian and you can either go to the Aviva site and register. Or you can Like Aviva on FaceBook.Like Aviva Community Fund Its that easy.
You are able to vote during all the qualifying rounds and the semi final rounds. And you can vote up to 15 times during each round, and then again 15 more times during the semi finals. So if there are a few causes there that you think you want to support you can, and I love that, there are too many great causes to just choose one.
You can also follow the contest on Follow @Aviva Twitter. Which I really need to figure out. I hear Hubby all the time going on about it, so if you are smarter than me, you can totally follow them.
So if you have a few minutes go take a look and vote. It will cost you nothing, but it will allow you to help support some great things going on in your own community. I have some more reading to do, I only have 15 votes people! I have to make them count!.
