When someone, a business or an organization asks me to write a blog post or make a video I’m not opposed to it if I believe in the subject or think my readers will get some use out of it. That is why I’m here to spread the word about a national charity contest that Food Banks Canada and Air Miles Canada are putting on. I’m not necessarily here to promote their contest though.
They did a cleaver thing by adding some incentive for food banks across Canada to promote the contest. For every action that is done by the group to promote the contest, they can get a $100 Shell Gas Card. An action being a blog post, newsletter, tweet or Facebook statues. I was asked to write this post by the Salvation Army in Yellowknife.
I grow up around the Sally Ann in Yellowknife; at one point the people there were like family. Times have changed, yes, but what they do still stands. Everyday the food bank in the Sally Ann is open for those who need it. They help keep the food bank stalked by driving the Sally Ann van around to get food items. As you can imagine the gas cards would go a long way, especially this time of year.
So do me a favour and follow this link http://on.fb.me/tIHlSR and vote.
Once you have done that, copy the link into your own Facebook statues, tweet or blog post and share it around, but make sure you tag the Salvation Army Yellowknife’s Facebook Page or @YkSalvationArmy on Twitter so they can track it.
That’s all from me, for now.
