I was checking out the news this morning, and I came across a very interesting news article from CTV Edmonton.
This is an Alberta-based news story.
I thought this was a very creative way of getting attention for fund cuts in Alberta for resources for people with developmental disabilities. If you don’t want to read the article, basically, a group of people are having a mock bottle drive to get attention to reverse the provincial liquor tax. They also encouraged people donating bottles to leave messages inside the bottle for the provincial government. They hope to relay their message of the needs for funding for the developmental disabilities sector! This will take place on January 14th, so I’ll be sure to check out for how they did. I’ll update this blog post with more information come January 14th.
I’m unsure about the tax reversal thing, but I do agree it is important for the government to see the impact the cut is making, and I do also think that this is a very buzzworthy fundraiser.
What do you think of this mock bottle drive?
