OF THE "CAMPAIGN"
The "Foundation "
hereto lists its Purposes for creating and implementing the
"Campaign" as a described in its Bylaws as a
not-for-profit Alberta Society as:
I. THE CREATION OF EMPLOYMENT
IN ENVIRONMENTAL JOBS IS THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THE
II. To Produce Operating
Capital for the "Foundations" On-going Projects.
III. To Promote Environmental
Research and Education in Alberta.
"Students to Save the Planet" Fundraising Campaign
(hereinafter referred to as "the Campaign"), shall
consist of the following fundraising techniques:
Door-to-door canvassing by Student Peace Environmental Research
Foundation Members as a part-time, summer employment activity
(job). Instead of just asking for donations, or selling only
memberships, they are offering a product of value (bags of milk
chocolates and peanuts) for sale as well as distributing printed
environmental information with each house-call. Canvassers
received commissions of 50% of the Products Sales Price, and
many (8 to 12 yrs} earned $8. to $10. per hour.
Prior to employment, each canvasser attends a Campaign Training
Seminar after which they consider themselves as
"Environmental Representatives" and will be encouraged
to help households become more environmentally appropriate by:
a.) composting their organic wastes even by helping them set up
composters, b.) switching to nature-friendly organic lawn and
garden practices, c.) other environmental information and
Public Mailing and Phone Calling.
Anti-Herbicide Media Advertising and Organic Lawn Care
Promotions - paid for from Canvassing Margins.
Organizational Structure of the "Campaign" follows the
Principles of Free Enterprise with-in those Rights and
Privileges as described in the Societies Act of Alberta.
It was endorsed under license by the Edmonton Better Business
Bureau, the Edmonton Police Department, Edmonton City Hall, and
Alberta Social Services.

PRICING, MARGINS, AND
COSTS - available by request
the summers of '93 to '95 the Campaign made a difference to a
lot of kids in the Edmonton area - especially those from working
poor families who had to help their parents earn a hike in
already excessive grade school entrance fees. Summer jobs
around here for kids are few.
Of course, Chestnut the Squirrel
brought a smile to the rather morbid subject of pesticide
poisoning. He is great for newspaper ads.
Due to a slump in general fundraising revenues, and a lack of ample
sponsorship; the Foundation had to moth-ball the Campaign until funding
improves . Pesticide abuse is now in the front lines of environmental action,
and a hot-potato for most corporate sponsors. Incredibly a formidable
challenge. But, then again, so was the subject of recycling 41 years ago.......
