[SIFE] Let’s Can Hunger Contest: How Creative CAN You Get? | Deadline: December 5

Nov 28, 2011

At SIFE Simon Fraser’s Let’s Can Hunger, we aim to reduce hunger problems for the local community, as well as to help them achieve a sustainable life. If you are interested in an opportunity to show off your creativity for a PRIZE, take part in SIFE Let’s Can Hunger’s latest campaign,How Creative CAN You Get?”.


Why: Food Banks BC states that 87 food banks in British Columbia help feed over 70,000 people each month; however, the majority of food banks receive NO GOVERNMENT FUNDING and depend on the public to help in the fight against hunger. For that reason SIFE Simon Fraser takes part in a campaign called Let’s Can Hunger to increase awareness of hunger among young people in British Columbia.

What: Each type of canned good has its very own design; we would like to see how you can make your own unique design! There are no limitations to what you do with the can whether it’s making partial changes, a complete makeover, or stacking cans together to create a can sculpture!


When: Competition has started!  Deadline to submit your design is December 5th, 2011.

How: Take a picture and submit your work to marketing@sifesimonfraser.com. Your design will be put up onhttp://www.facebook.com/#!/sifesimonfraser for people to vote on. Once you’ve submitted your design, we really encourage that you also donate your canned good with the design to our SIFE offices at Burnaby: WMC 2371 or at Surrey: 5010.  We will then donate the canned goods to the SFU food bank to distribute to the local community.

Why: Owner of most liked picture will win a 50 Dollars Gift Card to Best Buy!

At the same time, a random draw will decide 2 lucky winners to a 20 Dollars Gift Card to Tim Hortons each.


Bet you’re all pumped up!  In the case that you don’t actually have time to make your own design, feel free to browse other participants’ submissions on http://www.facebook.com/#!/sifesimonfraser and vote for the one you like best!
