[Giveaway] $100 Surprise with Edo Japan #Reach4It Moments

Diana Chan October 26, 2015 Contest

Edo Japan recently launched its Reach For It campaign to encourage customers not only to reach for Edo, but also to reach out to their friends, families, neighbours and even strangers in an effort to create simply better moments. How do you do it? It can be catching up with an old friends you haven’t seen in a while or a random act of kindness for a stranger.

How I reach out to my community is to donate my creative services to small businesses with big hearts. Outside of having a full-time job and running Foodology, I always make time to volunteer for non-profit organizations. I definitely keep myself very busy. My most recent project was with Wuchild, a local Vancouver business which creates beautiful crafts and apparel for stylin’ kids and moms. They want to drive social impact by igniting the untapped talent — and empowering creative identity — of new mothers. The duo – Yvette and Bernice had an amazing vision for Wuchild, so I agreed to help design a few ads and shirts.

This is one of the many ways I reach out into my community.

Foodology and Edo Japan would like to make your Reach For It Moments come true. The winner will receive a surprise worth $100.

Tell us below in the comments what is your Reach For It moment.

    My husband’s birthday is coming up next month and I would love to give him an extra special dinner out in Downtown. We’ve been trying to save up for a mortgage, so we haven’t eaten out too much. Thats how I would create my Reach4it my celebrating our milestones in life.
