Update: See this link for the results of the Humpback Comeback Project in the AVIVA competition.
Thank you so much!
Our small, Northern Vancouver Island project has withstood whale-sized odds and, with your continued support, may now win $25,000 for humpback conservation research.
The Humpback Comeback Project competed against community projects from across Canada in the AVIVA Community Fund’s contest that operates very much like an “Idol” for charities.
So many people voted for Humpback Comeback that it has advanced to the final round of the voting, finishing in the top 30 of 528 projects in the funding category. But now the going gets really tough since our Project is up against many (wonderful) community projects that are championed by large population bases in urban Ontario.
Our Project may not originate from a densely populated area, but the community of people who recognize the importance of this research is very large indeed.
You have one vote a day for ten days in this time period.
Please too could you promote the Project by sharing this blog item with your social networks? Demanding, I know – but a great deal is at stake.

If you’ve not registered in the prior round of voting, you will have to do so and then click the link that gets sent to you in an email.

After the final voting round, a jury will decide which of the top scoring Projects will be funded.
What a SPLASH it would create if this included the Humpback Comeback Project!
From team MERS – again, thank you so much.
