Contest | Making a Difference with McCain Foods Canada’s #McCainShareGood Campaign

The holidays season has settled and life seems to be getting a lot busier for us all. I am true believer that supporting positive campaigns &  working with brands that have a strong Corporate Responsibility is important, no matter how busy I get. That is why I am excited to tell you all about McCain Foods Canada‘s newest initiative and the #McCainShareGood Campaign. Come & see how they are planning to make a difference in the lives of countless Canadians and how your support can help you WIN with

“According to the 2014 Food Banks Canada Donor Impact Report, more than 4 million Canadians don’t know where their next meal is coming from. In the coming year, McCain Foods will donate one million dollars worth of food and monetary support to Food Banks Canada, and help fill the plates of those in need.”

Now THIS is a cause I will happily stand behind. Many people don’t realize this about me, but when I was a young boy my parents relied on The Food Bank during some pretty tough years for our family. There are Canadians each and every day that still struggle with providing for themselves and their children. My family personally benefited from this system and I know that many of us don’t realize that we most likely interact with someone during our day to day business who currently does as well.

The #McCainShareGood Campaign is one of the ways that McCain Foods Canada aims to help alleviate and hopefully one day eliminate these alarming needs from coast to coast.

“From November 19 – December 23, McCain Foods is donating $5 to Food Banks Canada, up to $50,000, for every good news story shared using #McCainShareGood on Twitter or by tagging the McCain Foods Canada Facebook page.”

My good news is that I am blessed to have an unconventional family that loves and supports me. I have experienced a lot of ups and downs in my life, as I am sure most of you have. Alongside Julio, Amanda and Catherine, I now have a supportive “family” that helps to inspire me to overcome any challenge and tackle life’s hardships. Though we get to live an amazing life via this site and the adventures we share with you on social media, we also face the same challenges you do. Family is the most important factor in my life and will always be the driving force behind what keeps me going, keeps me smiling and keeps me inspired. No matter what shape or size your family may be, be it by blood or simply by love, know that they are there for you no matter what. Especially when times get tough.

So what is YOUR good news story? As mentioned, From November 19 – December 23rd 2014, for every story shared on Facebook tagging McCain Foods’ Facebook Page with #McCainShareGood and every tweet sent out using @mccainfoods & #McCainShareGood, McCain will donate $5.00 to Food Banks Canada up to $50,000.00. This is your chance to make a difference via your social media channels and to help show your support to those in need over the Holiday Season.
