The 2010 Hungry for Change campaign is off and running. We’re inviting
our industry members to hold fundraising events that connect feeding our
employees and customers at BBQs, etc. and raise money to feed children
at the same time.


HERE’S WHO’S DOING SOMETHING

Westburne Quebec raised $5175 (20,700 school lunches) in its golf tournament at Mirabel, Le Victorien golf club. “We are very proud of this event! It was a fun day and great cause to rally around. Everyone pitched in, happy to be part of something so meaningful,” said Benoit Laramee, Westburne Quebec.

Brews Supply Ltd. showed support for the Hungry for Change campaign on the golf course! Through the sale of Mulligans, Brews raised enough funds to plant two community gardens, provide 10 families with seeds and tools, purchase 10 goats and 150 chickens for impoverished farming families, and serve up 1600 meals for hungry children.

Donations last year were over $300,000. This year we’re also adding an
“Executive Cookbook” to the effort.
Executives are invited to send in a
recipe, along with a photo and description. The cost to participate is
only $500 (to cover production costs) and we’ve got 29 people signed up
so far. Let us know if you’d like to be part of our effort.

mt_ignoreDriven by volunteers from Canada’s Electrical Industry, Hungry for
Change is an ongoing campaign that will provide fun opportunities to get
together with friends while raising funds for vulnerable children
around the world, INCLUDING Canada.

When you help Hungry for Change (Canadian Feed the Children), you fund
nutrition programs for vulnerable children—not just in some far-off
African village, but RIGHT HERE AT HOME in Canada! And because Hungry
for Change is volunteer-driven, 94% OF THE FUNDS raised go directly to
programs.

However you choose to get involved, you join Canada’s electrical
industry in making a world of difference. To be a part of this amazing
