Giving Tuesday – a celebration of volunteering and charitable donations – is happening in early December and we urge you to take part.
This global day of giving takes place on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd, which follows American Thanksgiving and Black Friday, which marks the start of the holiday shopping season.
The opening day of the giving season encourages charities, companies and individuals to unite and rally behind their favourite charitable causes.
Giving Tuesday harnesses social media and online platforms to connect donors and volunteers with non-profit organizations and charities across Canada and the world. It promotes major fundraising campaigns and small acts of kindness in an effort to promote a sense of community and goodwill.
In 2018, more than 6,500 businesses and charities participated in Giving Tuesday throughout the country, engaging millions of Canadians, who took it upon themselves to donate their time or money to their favourite causes.
This year will mark the seventh annual celebration of Giving Tuesday, which overlaps with our New Legacy fundraising campaign.
Please consider supporting our efforts or take the time to give back to another charity or non-profit group that is near and dear to your heart this Giving Tuesday!
