If you recall – and the 3,700 of you who entered the draw should recall – there was a chance to win one of three prizes: The Grand Prize, a travel voucher worth $1,500 to visit anywhere in the world (for real!), and the other two prizes were gift cards redeemable at any Apple store in Canada, one valued at $200 and the other at $100.

Class Action 2011: BYOB Kiosk Having a Big Impact

We’ve reached our goal – Class Action 2011 has raised $13,000! That amount pays for the cost of the mobile water kiosk that dispenses purified municipal water, which the Office of Sustainability so nicely purchased for us even before all the funds were raised.
