WHERE: Bloor Street just east of Bedford Road
WHEN: Monday afternoon
WHAT: They say that money doesn’t grow on trees, but in this case it at least latched onto one. While walking yesterday afternoon, reader Ian Pattillo noticed this five dollar note “taped in an upper branch of a tree, floating on a breeze.” Upon closer inspection, Pattillo realized that the bill had been stamped with a URL: Makelifebrighter.ca.
Turns out, the found money is part of a campaign (of course): part promo for a pill called Veeva (which “contains ancient herbs as well as newly discovered nutrients and powerful spices [which]…support the whole body in its quest for balance”) and part fundaiser for Dixon Hall, an east end social service agency. So, if you are fortunate enough to come across your own money tree, go to Makelifebrighter.ca and enter the serial number on the bill; one dollar will go to Dixon House, and you’ll have a few more in your pocket to spend on your quest for balance—or not—as you wish.
