Make Your Vote Count in the Aviva Community Fund Charity Contest
What would you do to improve your local community? I have mentioned in the past that I live in a very small town in the Annapolis Valley, NS and we are in need of a community centre. If I had the funds that is what I would build for our area. That's one of the reasons why I really appreciate the Aviva Community Fund and what it does for communities like mine across Canada.
The Aviva Community Fund's goal is to help influence positive change in communities all over the country. Every year they host a contest where Canadians can submit their ideas of what they would do to improve their community. It makes perfect sense because the citizens of a community know what they need for their local area vs. a person/company who doesn't live there.
For example, if you weren't a resident of my town, you wouldn't see as easily as me that we don't have many programs for residents of our community and how much a community centre would benefit people here.
