Aviva Results

We’d like to once again thank everyone who voted and shared our Aviva Community Fund submission.  Unfortunately, the results are in and we did not make it to the finals.

We did, however, increase our votes from approximately 900 last year to approximately 11 000 this year!

We can’t do this without you so thank you very much for your efforts.  On to the next fundraiser!Aviva

Christmas is coming….don’t forget your gift cards!

Christmas is less than two months away and FundScrip has a fantastic November promotion to help ensure the school gets more money for each gift card you buy from the retailers below.

Gift cards not only make great teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, or gifts for those who are hard to buy for, but you can also use them yourself to make purchases.  Buying gift cards to use when Christmas or grocery shopping is a great way to ensure you stay on budget.  Buying Fundscrip gift cards costs you nothing extra but helps the school as the RETAILERS (not you) donate a portion of the card purchase to our fundraiser.

Help us Get More Votes!

We currently have over 9300 votes!  Thank you to everyone who voted and shared our submission so far.

Although this is a lot of votes, other similar submissions have more than 20 000 votes so we still have a long way to go to be in the running for this money!  Please help us build this playground!  Get your co-workers, friends, neighbours, family near and far to all vote for us.  Every vote counts!


Clean Out Your Closets and Build a Playground!


With the winter weather creeping in, many of us are going through our clothing stashes as we put summer clothes away and bring out the winter sweaters.

Wondering what to do with those old clothes that no longer fit or that your little one refuses to wear because the sparkles aren’t quite right or the superhero is not their favourite anymore?

We are collecting clothing, accessories and other cloth items alongside the Canadian Kidney Foundation on OCTOBER 22 from 10-2pm.  Bring your unwanted items and help us earn $0.20 for every pound donated to put toward a playground for the New Brighton School.  Help us spread the word.  Every pound adds up!




Help us WIN $100 000 by VOTING

Those of you who were following us last year likely recall our Aviva submission.  We are trying it again and we need your HELP!

This year, they’ve allowed people to use all their votes at the same time if they wish. No need this year to remember to vote every day! Everyone gets 18 votes and we hope you’ll use all of yours for our idea.  We also hope you’ll recruit family, friends and neighbours to do the same.  That’s all we ask for…VOTES.  No money, no volunteering….  How easy is that?

Help us build this inclusive playground that will contain features that allow kids with special needs (physical, emotional or otherwise) to enjoy it as much as the other kids!  It’s a great thing for the school and community as a whole!
