Aviva, an insurance company in Canada, has this community fund contest each year where the projects with the most votes get funding. Many of these projects are for animal shelters. Although the projects are in Canda anyone can vote for their favourite project. I have chosen to support "Shelter from the Storm" a project hoping to build single dog shelters for abandoned and stray dogs in Northern Alberta. Winters in the far North of Alberta are frigid to say the least! Each insulated shelter costs $150.00, they want to build 250. Here is a link to their project. If you agree it is the best idea please click daily for the next 14 days to support them.
Here is a link to the online view of the original email I was sent telling me about this years competition.
