Ontario Veterinary College students draw 600 chickens for Laos!

Adam Little, a third year student at Ontario Veterinary College, Guelph, Ontario dressed up in a chicken costume as he promised to do if his classmates met his challenge to draw 600 chickens for Laos.

For the month of November, Aeroplan asked people to send in drawings of chickens and for each chicken drawing received, Aeroplan will donate $5 to help purchase a chicken for families in Laos. Every year, Aeroplan and one of its Beyond Miles charitable partners sends Aeroplan employees on an engagement trip.  These trips were created to inspire and engage Aeroplan employees by helping them see how and where our charitable partners use donated Aeroplan Miles. Earlier this year, Aeroplan employees Alison, Amanda and Luis joined Aeroplan’s Beyond Miles charitable partner Veterinarians Without Borders (VWB) on a trip to Laos.

Today, Alden Hadwen, Director of Community Engagement with Aeroplan visited OVC in Guelph to pick up the chicken drawings.

There are still 2 days for you to help.  To enter, please send your drawing or photo to: csr.aeroplan (at) aeroplan.com by November 30th.
