Just fill in the blanks to raise money for the planet, urges Criterion Investments.

TORONTO, July 11, 2008 – Criterion is encouraging Canadians to make their own story about “the time they left it too late” – all in the name of charity. It’s quick, easy and will raise money for the David Suzuki Foundation, which works hard to find sustainable solutions in areas that include marine conservation, climate change and clean energy.

We all have a story to tell about leaving it too late, whether it’s the ‘golf game you should have won,’ ‘the property you should have bought,’ or ‘the great pair of shoes that got away.’

Now Criterion wants to see your story. Try it at

Criterion is supporting the David Suzuki Foundation with the interactive fundraising initiative. Each submission will generate a $10 donation to the charitable organization*.

Criterion’s ‘what’s your entry point?’ campaign is focused on ‘missed opportunities’ in order to highlight why now is the entry point for investing in the long-term growth themes of water infrastructure and clean energy.

“We are pleased to join efforts with Criterion Investments on this initiative, and to see increased awareness of important themes such as water and clean energy in the Canadian investment community,” said Alissa Horii, director of development at the David Suzuki Foundation.
