Food Bank Event: Boink for A Cause

The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society fully expects you to do a double-take when reading the title of the upcoming fundraising event March 20th, which is being hailed as a real boink-a-thon.

Boink Day is March 20th and you’re encouraged to stop by the Vancouver Art Gallery to take your turn jumping on a pogo stick for a good cause. For every single jump completed from 7:00am until 7:00pm, Spring Advertising & Design (along with their clients) will donate 10 cents to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

March 20th is also the first day of spring and each participant gets a sticker to commemorate how many times they boinked during the campaign.

You can sign up for the Facebook event to get updates – although I must warn you that some of the promo images are just a little too cheeky.

    Boink… what an odd term.. back in the day (do I sound old when I say that?) when people boinked… it was hooking up! Well I guess guys used to use the term.

    As for pogo sticks, can’t remember the last time I used one. Wasn’t very good at it I’m sure. lol
