Good morning all,

Hope for Wildlife is vying for a top spot in this year's Aviva
Community Fund competition and we NEED your help! The Aviva Community
Fund is awarding over $1 million to Canadian charities and we need
VOTES for Hope for Wildlife to WIN!

So what are you voting for? As many of you know, the need for
dedicated marine animal facilities is rising at Hope for Wildlife.
With our FIRST EVER successful releases of orphaned seals this year,
we now know that we have the skills, now we just need the facilities!
And its not just seals that will benefit - this is a Marine Animal
Rehab Centre - so the facilities will also cater to wayward pelicans
and oiled seabirds. We've submitted a proposal in the $50-$100
category to pay for the construction of a facility completely unique
in Nova Scotia. We're talking pumps, pools, caging, oiled birdwashing
facilities AND an oceanside location! View our full profile at

Here's how you help: Anyone in Canada who is registered on the Aviva
Community Fund website can vote for ideas during the Idea Entry and
