Oh, what a week! It feels so crazy-good to be able to finally talk to anyone & everyone about this little project of mine ... facebook, twitter, day-to-day life. I am truly THRILLED by the support, feedback and love that I have received thus far. Seriously, I am buzzing with excitement!
As I write this (at 2:00 a.m. - eek!) my intro video for the website / for the Aviva Community Fund contest is rendering. 68%! Almost there! The contest begins tomorrow, and I realize I have yet to fill you in on the details. Woops!
The Aviva Community Fund is basically a contest for Canadians who want to make a positive change in their community (or, in my case, many communities). They are giving away $1,000,000, which will be shared among various projects all across Canada. Basically, how it works, is Round 3 begins tomorrow - the 30 most popular (based on # of votes) move on to the semi-final round where they compete for top votes against the top 30 of Round 1 & 2. Then, the top 30 from the finals go through a judging round....and from there, the judges choose the winners!
I know, it sounds like a long and very tough journey.....but hey, who doesn't love a challenge? Not to mention, it is an INCREDIBLE opportunity!
Voting for Round 3 takes place between November 15th - 26th .... you will have 10 votes, and can only vote once/day on the same project!
Steps to voting:
Go to - www.avivacommunityfund.org
Search - 'Roadtrip with Reason' or #9047
VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!
& spread the word
I do realize it is annoying to have to register, and then vote on a daily basis for ten days....however, please realize that the difference your one little daily *click* could make on this project is huge. I would appreciate your help SO much. SO MUCH! I can't even begin to describe to you how MUCH!
Please feel free to spread the word to your roommates, office buddies, family, friends, neighbours and strangers....every vote helps!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Keep your eyes peeled for the video -- and if you haven't yet, find me on twitter (here) and facebook (here)!
Happy trails & travels!
