I find it so encouraging this time of year to see opportunities for small groups and organizations to build better communities. It is also encouraging to see Businesses helping out by sponsoring programs. I have been following a contest put on by Aviva Insurance called the Aviva Community Fund, it's designed to help programs build awareness for their causes and have their programs win awards based on fan votes to assist them to reach their goals. I love to see programs based on building and supporting families, I think it is so important for our kids today with all the pressures from society and the media to have a grounded home base and life to help them grow into productive adults. The program is now moving into the Semi-Final stages and it's time to get up and vote for your favorites. Once you have registered on the Aviva Community Fund website you can just sign in daily and vote, you can vote up to 15 times per voting cycle and you can either vote for the same candidate or spread your vote around to all your favorites. Now you can only vote for once per day for an idea and be sure to vote for the one you want to see win as once you cast your vote you can not take it back. If you would like to follow all the action you can Like Aviva Community Fund on facebook or via Twitter Follow @Aviva to get more information about the fund and what Aviva is doing for communities just like yours.
