This Winter, one of our volunteer elves had the good idea of proposing our Founding Elf, Sylvain Duhamel, at the concours Gens de coeur contest, organized by Radio-Canada and Financière Manuvie.
The contest’s goal is to highlight and foster volunteer action in the community. The submission letter (in French) was convincing because Sylvain has been selected as one of the 10 finalists announced today. This means the Little Elves Foundation will receive a $1,000 donation.
Better yet, the public is invited to vote for their BÉNÉVOLE GENS DE COEUR 2014, which would mean an extra donation of $20,000 for the winner’s chosen charitable organization.
So, don’t wait! Vote on the Radio-Canada website!
The voting period ends March 24, and the winner will be announced on April 11th at 12:30 PM on the show Pour le plaisir.
