Be Remarkable – $100,000 Charity Campaign To Benefit BC Communities
A new charity initiative has recently launched in British Columbia and getting involved is as easy as a couple clicks of your mouse. The Credit Unions of BC are paving the way to bring $100,000 to communities across the province that could use some extra dollars for various arts, education and community groups local to each region.

How it works:
- Visit the Be Remarkable group on Facebook and click “Like”.
- Find your region – including a large number of communities across Vancouver Island – and tag yourself and your friends in your town’s photo.
- Every time a user is tagged, The Credit Unions of BC will donate $1 to a charity in that community.
There are 32 charities that are eligible to receive funds – two from each region. Users on Vancouver Island that tag themselves in Island communities will be supporting the Victoria READ Society and the Vancouver Island School of Arts Society. You can also find Be Remarkable on Twitter.
