Fundraising campaign for 2014 MFMF now underway

The Mission Folk Music Festival (MFMF) has joined a campaign spanning the globe called Giving Tuesday.

It started Dec. 3 and represents a day of giving back to communities, volunteer organizations and other endeavours that improve where we live.

The day also represented the start of the fundraising campaign for the 2014 MFMF, held annually at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Acxsys Corporation, better known as Interac, will contribute $25 for each donation made to the festival using your debit card on the Canada Helps website, up to a maximum of $5,000. To donate, visit canadahelps.org and follow the instructions.

The 2014 festival runs July 25-27. The gala concert, which kicks off the festival, will be July 24 at Mission's Clarke Theatre.
