Canada Post donates to Olympic efforts through Facebook

As part of their ongoing commitment to the Canadian Freestyle Team, Canada Post has launched a game on Facebook that will help raise much needed funds to fuel the team’s 2010 Olympic aspirations.

CatchAir lets Canadians from coast-to-coast challenge their friends to perfect the flips and tricks that have made Canada’s freestyle team the world’s best. Each time a challenge is made on CatchAir between February 16th and April 1st, Canada Post will donate 25 cents to support the team. Money raised through playing the game will be added to Canada Post’s ongoing financial commitment to the National Freestyle Team as title sponsor.

To celebrate the launch of the CatchAir Facebook game, and the National Freestyle Championship at Cypress Mountain in late March, Canada Post is also sponsoring a contest to encourage fans to show their support for the team. Every person signing on as a fan at the CatchAir Facebook page will be automatically entered to win a laptop computer autographed by the Canada Post Freestyle Ski Team. The contest deadline is April 1st and details and rules can be found online.
