It’s a new tradition: The first day of spring in Vancouver means that you can take part in a public pogo bounce challenge in front of the Vancouver Art Gallery and raise funds for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. The annual Boink Day – “Boinking For a Cause” campaign returns on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 to usher in the new season and support a great local cause.
The event works by having participants (anyone who stops by and is up for a bounce) hop on a pogo stick and Spring Advertising will donate $0.10 to the Food Bank for each bob. Pogo sticks will be available on site or you can bring your own, just be sure your bounces are counted.
Every $1 donated enables the food bank to purchase $3 of nutritious fresh fruit, vegetables, and eggs. The public can also make a cash or non-perishable food donation on-site.
