Anyone know about the Aviva Community Fund? Aviva (insurance company) does a thing where organizations post for a donation, and people vote for their favorite. Based on the number of votes, some go to finals where judges (not sure on details here) pick the winners, and organizations are given anywhere from $0-$100,000 in funding.

Well. They tried.

On another note: I created an account JUST for the purpose of sharing this with you guys, but I think I'll scroll through and see what else this forum has to offer :D

I hear those heart maonitors are expensive. I have visions of them rolling up to someone on Trent campus with a bloody nose and chucking an AED on them.

Wow that application is intense, I wonder what the ploy test will be like. A polygraph is stressful enough but hearing his mom walking on the kitchen floor right above you as you are tested.....talk about PTSD!

Why call an Ambulance staffed with educated Paramedics equipped with state of the art equipment when you can call two teenagers in a rusty Dodge Durango with WalMart LED lights and a First-Aid kit from Safeway?

Not to be a stickler, but I believe the LED lights were purchased at Princess Auto.

You amateurs! All this kit, and more, is available at your local Co-Op Gas Bar / C-Store! If you are living in the proper areas, you can even stock up on Saskatchewan Roughrider gear - nothing says Victim Services like entertaining the little ones while bandaging their boo-boo with your Gainer The Gopher hand-puppet (ok, I already KNOW what you sick beggars are thinking, so shut it down!)

Can feed them some Roughriders chips too and give them a Mix Chix calender to browse through on the way to the hospital :mrgreen:
