Looking around there are many things that we can do to build a better community. It takes one idea to start and just like domino effect I believe everything will follow; with empowered members of community hand in hand they can make a difference.
I know one of the constraints of making this idea to realize is the budget. One possible resource is by submitting your ideas to Aviva Community Fund, an annual charitable event, funded and supported by Aviva Insurance. Through their annual contest, who knows you might win the budget allocation for your idea.
Currently, the contest is in 2nd qualification round (there are three qualification rounds) but they are still accepting ideas. During the qualification rounds all you need is to get votes for your idea. Top 98 highest voted ideas will be qualified in the semi-final. Voting is still required during this phase and only top 30 with highest votes will get into final rounds. The semi-finalists will then be judged during the final rounds.
There are so many ideas to choose where you can give your support. The good thing is that you can support as many ideas as you want. You can cast 15 votes during each of the three initial rounds and another fifteen votes during the Semi-Finals at any time within each round, but you can only vote for idea once a day.
Voting is open to all Canadian citizens who are registered on the Aviva Community Fund Website. You can also register using Facebook connect and vote directly through their Facebook App. Like Aviva Community Fund and Follow @Aviva for updates and more information.
