This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Aviva Community Fund for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

How would you like to make a difference?

Aviva Canada Inc., has announced their third annual Aviva Community Fund Competition. They are offering $1,000,000 to support community initiatives across Canada.

Do you have an idea for positive community change? Visit Aviva Community Fund Contest to submit an idea and then tell everyone you know to vote as the most popular ideas will have a chance to share the $1,000,000 Aviva Community Fund.

Sit for a minute and brainstorm. What is needed in your community? A program for special needs children? A special dog walking path? A resource for single parents? Think about what people need in your community and in what way that could be accomplished. Don’t have any ideas? Be sure to tell others so they can get their ideas heard.

A little information about last year:

“The eleven winning ideas in 2010 ranged from a hockey team for youth with intellectual and physical disabilities in Ottawa, to an animal shelter in Yellowknife, to playgrounds for schools in British Columbia, Ontario and New Brunswick. Launched in the fall of 2009, the Aviva Community Fund competition has already provided over $1.5 million in funding to 19 charities and community groups.”

New for this year, all ideas submitted to the fund can be viewed on Facebook and will be able to accept votes via Aviva’s Facebook Community. Also for every Like the Aviva Community Fund receives on Facebook, $1 will be donated to Free The Children to support at-risk youth programs in Canada.

To increase the odds of your idea getting noticed (and voted for), get an insurance broker to support your idea, share with your social network as well as your offline friends, family and coworkers and even get it published in your local paper!

No ideas? Make sure you vote! Voting determines which idea wins. Voting continues until November 30, 2011, and the winners are announced on January 25, 2012.

There are some really GREAT ideas and it will be hard to choose as they all have merit!
