As you may have read in our last blog post, WIND is surging ahead with our plans to bring fair prices and freedom from wireless contracts to all Canadians. Earlier this week, we officially launched in the Niagara region. As a Niagara native myself, it means a lot to me that we’re able to bring wireless change to the area so I’m especially excited to introduce our latest initiative to give back – the WINDthanks Niagara Community Grant.
We’re asking residents and organizations in the region to tell us exactly what would make a positive change in the Niagara community. We want to hear about it and help out, by offering $10,000 for the project. Is there a park that needs updating? A youth sports team who needs new equipment? A project that you think the community would benefit from? Visit WINDmobile.ca/WINDthanks before January 13th and let us know.
All you have to do is give us a brief description about the project and why it should be awarded the grant. Anyone can nominate a project but the grant must be awarded to a recognized group.
We’ll be awarding the grant based on the benefit of the project to the Niagara community and its members, the innovation, uniqueness or need for the project in the community, and the support the project receives from the community. What do we mean by ‘support from the community’? You tell us! Get supporters to let us know that they want WIND to award the grant to your project. Post a comment on this blog, write on our Facebook wall, tweet @WINDmobile – anything to get our attention and show support.
We’ll be announcing the chosen project in January 2012 – so stay tuned to find out which project will receive the grant!
