Here’s an easy way to throw some support behind the Farm: The Tyee’s “Green Your Campbell Cash” contest. You can find our page here. The most voted-for project gets a cash prize from The Tyee, something that would really help us out as we’re mostly grant-funded.
To vote, simply scroll down on our page and click the amount of stars you’d like to give us (5 = “Awesome!”). There are a ton of worthy projects in the running, but we really hope you’ll take a brief moment to click on the five stars beside ours!
You can ALSO donate your check straight to the Farm, which would be an amazing help for us as well.
Here’s what to do:
1. (Optional, but encouraged)
Post a commitment!
If you fill in the form at http://contest.thetyee.ca/greenyourcampbellcash/post-commitment saying why you’re supporting the farm, it will hopefully inspire lots of others to do so.
2. Endorse your cheque:
(a) endorse your Campbell Cheque (write, “pay to the order of the UBC Farm – for deposit only” on the back of the cheque, and sign it), or
(b) cash your cheque and make out a personal check payable to the “UBC Farm”,
3. Mail your cheque to use:
Centre for Sustainable Food Systems at UBC Farm
Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4
4. Wait about a month, and you’ll get a tax reciept from us!
If you’ve already spent your “Campbell Cash,” remember that you can still show support for the farm at no cost by casting your vote at http://contest.thetyee.ca/greenyourcampbellcash/node/299
