AVIVA COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT – TECHNOLOGY FOR RURAL SENIORS

Cremona Community Engagement Site has entered into the AVIVA Community Development competition, asking for funding to support a great idea for our community! We have proposed “Technology for Rural Seniors”!

We would so appreciate your support on this idea, and you can do so by registering with Aviva and voting for our Idea Submission. Anyone registered for the Aviva Community Fund has 18 votes they can use at any time from October 10 -19, 2017 to vote for their favourite idea(s). You can spread your votes around or use them all to support one project. Cast all 18 votes at once, or keep coming back to cast your votes. Don’t forget, once a vote is cast, it cannot be changed.

The 15 ideas that receive the most votes in each of the two funding levels in the Community Development, Community Health and Community Resilience categories along with the highest Aviva broker partner votes (Top Ranked Broker-Supported idea) will become Finalists. Thanks for your interest and support!
