I love when companies give back to the community.  When I was still teaching at Dreams In Motion in Gananoque Ontario - they were entered into the Aviva Community Fund Competition where they had a chance of winning a large sum of money to help out the dance studio.  Now, unfortunately, we didn't win - but honestly - this is such an awesome idea.  AAviva Community Fund which is sponsored by Aviva Insurance gives money to different community ideas that are voted upon by YOU.  Well maybe not you specifically but by members of the community.  That's what I loved so much about it for Dreams - you were able to help vote them into the next round.  We made it fairly far but in the end didn't win anything, but I'm pretty sure they are applying again this year.  There is over $1,000,000 available to be given away with different prize levels (grand prizes and some $5000 prizes too!)  Ideas can be submitted until November 25, 2013.  Like I said before, Finalists are chosen based on the number of votes they receive, so if you have a great idea - tell EVERYONE you know about it and get them to vote for you :)  Also, if you have an insurance broker supporting your idea, that will increase your chances of winning. 

You can help out students like the ones pictured below:

Also some of last years winners included a Skate Park, Filling a school's swimming pool, a splash pad and many others.  Seriously people - easiest way to help your community EVER!  The competition starts in 14 days!  So put your thinking caps on and spread the news.
