Teaming up for Hamilton area kids

12 02 2012

Here’s a great opportunity to help support kids in the Hamilton area and embrace the spirit of community-building in a quick and easy fashion…

Our local Boys and Girls Club has a shot at winning a $50,000 grant through the Team Up Foundation (part of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment) that would enable them to expand the programs they offer across Hamilton.  The selection process involves two rounds of voting by the public and a screening process by the Foundation’s advisory team but, if they are one of the four successful finalists, they will receive $50,000. As I post this, they are in second place!

In order to make it to the next round and be considered by the advisory team, they need our help in getting as many people to vote every day (until February 20) as possible.  Anyone can vote  (including adults, children, youth, grandparents, etc.) by registering their name and email on the site and then logging in each day.  Multiple people (e.g. each individual in a family) can vote on the same computer each day as long as they log in individually. 

In addition to voting yourself each day, you can help in getting the word out and encouraging others to vote in support of an organization working to empower and support young people in our community. 

 How to support Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton in five easy steps:

 Go to

  1. Click on “View the Candidates”.

  2. Find and click on “Boys and Girls Clubs of Hamilton” (currently on the first page but this may change from day to day).

  3. Click on “Vote for this Charity” (you will need to register the first time you vote but can simply log in each time afterwards).

  4. Repeat every day until the voting ends on February 20!

 Thank you in advance for your help and support!  Remember that every vote counts!
