container village - VOTE SOME MORE!!!

So, last time I appealed for your support of Container Village, they were trying to make it into the semi-finals of the Aviva Insurance Community Fund contest. Well, thanks to a final push, they squeeked in (thanks to all who voted!).

Now it's time to vote some more. And it doesn't matter where you are or where you're from. You have the chance to participate in the making a tangible difference in the lives of hundreds of homeless people in the Tri-Cities region of B.C. (part of the Greater Vancouver Regional District). Please help!

SIGN-UP HERE (please take the time - it's for a good cause)

VOTE HERE (reminder: you can vote once per day until Dec. 15th - they need all your votes!)

Here's an overview of the project:

Container Village is a "temporary" shelter idea for the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody), a suburb of Vancouver With civic approval they are responding to a community concern to shelter the homeless by creating a "Container Based Homeless Village" out of donated specially altered shipping containers. Every room is heated, fireproofed and offers reading lights.

VOTE HERE (in case you missed it)
