All in a Day Hopes & Dreams 2013: your dreams come true, and you help a great cause too

What have you always wanted to do? Star in a play? Get a master class with a bakerPlay a big church organ? Crush a car?


We made all those things happen for All in a Day listeners last year, in exchange for their fundraising efforts for the Shepherds of Good Hope. And they had quite the experiences -- just look at our car crusher!



The Shepherds is once again the chosen charity for CBC Ottawa's annual day of giving on December 6th. And to build up to that, we're going to make more listeners' dreams come true.


Over the next few days, we want you to share your dreams with us. Then, at the end of this week, we'll choose five finalists, based on originality of the idea and our ability to actually make it come true. If you're one of our finalists, you'll have until midnight on Thursday, November 21st to raise as much money as you can for the Shepherds of Good Hope. Our top fundraiser will have their dreams come true!


You give, we give - and the Shepherds wins too. It's the perfect formula.


So here's the drill:


1. Write a description of your dream. Feel free to include some background information and a little something about yourself, but be sure to keep it to a maximum of 200 words.


2. Take a photograph of yourself depicting your dream, in whatever creative way you can come up with.


3. Send both to us at by no later than 11:59pm on Thursday, November 14, 2013.


Full rules and regulations after the jump.
