    Hey everyone,
    In the next month here you will notice some Facebook page changes.
    We have decided to go with a local company here and do a "1 like for 1 dollar" charity give away.

    For every "like" we get in the next month here we will be donating $1.00 UP TO a total of $1000.00 to the local food bank here in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada (Where me and Adam are from)

    This is the first time we have done a public charitable campaign of such, and i think it would be neat that maybe next year we could do a poll to see where everyone are from, and we can start picking other city food banks to give back to, very possibly one you live in.

    Yeah if you do your research, i helped look into this a few years ago as part of my old job and we found out that the food banks are pretty much the best way to do a money based donation.

    In fact donating money to the food banks is better than giving food to them, as they get special pricing for food. So they can actually buy MORE food at a lower cost than any average person could come across.

    Excellent idea on all levels. I also like the idea about polling to see where we can as a community help most!! Keep up the hard work, it's appreciated. May positive karma rain down on the staff.

    So is it just the main UOF FB page, or will you be starting another? Great idea & seriously just say the word so I can flip the switch...I've got years of liking shit for no reason other than someone asked me to & a carefully selected herd of E-minions set to be unleashed on a noble cause.

    in lieu of "moar boobies" I'll chose this!...wait were boobies an option? Like, we hit 1000 in a week & admins post Xmas n00ds?

    (off to ponder the knowledge of an all male admin staff...:/)

    ROUGH RIDERS. Youd think with all that flat land in the Sask there would be tons of food, or a hockey team. But good on you, I know food banks here in Vancouver struggle to meet demand all year round and the holiday season they are bare. 1000 likes should be cake.

    And like Shane said money is better companies like sysco and centennial give tremendous deals. Also alot of big corporations match donations.

    We want legitimate likes, we are aware that you can pay like 20$ and get like 10,000 fake likes, but that does nothing for our marketing or brand awareness but thank you!
