Whoohoo! We need 250,000 views to Fill the Foodbank

Here it is! Super Simple! Watch this video and  Shaw will donate $1 to the food bank drive and Campbell Canada will donate 1 pound of food up to $250,000 and 250,000 pounds of food respectively! Awesome! Please Share & RT. 

By the way, while I have your attention, if they would just raise the minumum wage to $15 a hour, a single mom with a child could actually work part-time, while the child is in school- if such hours actually existed and then they would not have to take assistance. 

Employers need to think about how they can accommodate women more. It takes a village to raise a child and in our present culture of  every person for themself, well it is obvious it is not working. 

Using a school as a babysitter is not my idea of a how to educate a child either, especially in our present predicament with the teachers and students caught up in funding shortages and other issues.

 Creating Edible Schoolyards and focusing on urban gardens, teaching children and families how to raise their own food, is a task we need to put at highest priority. Roof top gardens and greening the urban landscape is a must.
