You Can Make A Change
This post brought to you by Aviva Community Fund. All opinions are 100% mine.
Making a change in your community sometimes requres years and years of politics and debate before you see an acutal impact. Sometimes people have a great idea but have no idea how to achieve it, or don’t have the capital to get it started and turn the great idea into a reality.
That is why I was thrilled to hear about the Aviva Community Fund. Its a contest that gives you a chance to make your idea for a positive community change into a reality by winning the money that is required to get it up and running.
While checking out the site, I noticed that here in Calgary there are two ideas that were inspiring. One is a Teens Community Kitchen which would provide meals and nutritional guidance to the community as well as training and job skills for the local youth. Another idea from another Calgaryian is an organization that helps disabled youth and their families transition into adulthood. There are so many options to choose to vote for and to help with, plus you can sumbit your own ideas to see in your own Canadian city.
How can you get your ideas out there and seen by the world? You can enter by submitting an idea on the site and have your friends and neighbors vote. Submitting is open on October 1, 2012 and the more people that you get to vote, the better your chances are of winning.
