Here's what campaign participants say:
The virtual food Drive is a cool, interactive way to do fundraising. It's so different from all the other fundraising campaigns we have run. It's very visual and lets you shop online picking and choosing the items you want to buy. Our employees have told us they are so happy we started a Virtual Food Drive for them to participate in. It's fun and easy! ~Nisha Agrawal, Bentall Kennedy
I was shocked at how much money the Virtual Food Drive generated in a very short period of time. Donations started to come in within minutes of sending out the email to staff, friends and family. This was so much faster and easier than collecting money in an envelope or collecting food in a box by my desk. ~Stephen Deedes-Vincke, Telus
