As many of you know, we have spent the last few months competing in the second cycle of Shell FuellingChange for a $100,000 grant.
For quite a while we managed to hold a place in the top two. However, as the competition got tougher, we unfortunately dropped into third place and more recently fourth place.
Despite this drop, we are proud of the efforts of our small organization and incredibly thankful for the efforts of all of our supporters. Many of the organizations we compete against in FuellingChange are much larger and more well-known within their provinces and the nation. Remaining at the top for as long as we have in both cycles is an accomplishment.
As typical of Shell Canada, they are offering one last bonus code in recognition of Earth Day. Until Sunday, April 29, 2012 enter the following bonus code to receive 50 Bonus Votes to cast in favour of our project: Gbh-7m79z2
The more you share this code, the more you encourage your friends, family and co-workers to vote for the Pacific Parklands Foundation – the greater chance we have of pulling back into the top two and staying there to the end of the competition.
Finishing in the top two means earning $100,000 to put towards a project that will greatly benefit Metro Vancouver’s Boundary Bay Regional Park.
To do this, we need your help. Vote and do your part to spread the word. The more people we have voting for our organization, the greater chance we have at winning. In cycle one, it was organizations that pulled ahead at the last minute that knocked us out of the top four. Perhaps this time, with your support, we can be the ones to pull ahead just in time to win!
Happy (late) Earth Day!
