Farm Credit Canada, along with the Rick Hansen Foundation and Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA), have launched #BackToAg – a social media campaign to help raise money for a new program that helps get injured farmers back to doing what they love best.

From May 29 to June 13, Farm Credit Canada, Rick Hansen Foundation, and the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) will use the hashtag #BacktoAg in tweets and Facebook posts.

FCC will donate $1 (up to $100,000) for every retweet, like, share and #BacktoAg hashtag mention on Twitter or Facebook towards a new program, administered by CASA, called Back to Ag that will help injured farmers return to agriculture while raising awareness about the impact of life-altering injuries.
