What is Giving Tuesday?
GIVING TUESDAY – THE GLOBAL DAY OF GENEROSITY
Canada, join us for the 10th annual GivingTuesday on November 29th, 2022
GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenge and global challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - non-profits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
“We have two days that are good for the economy.
Now we have a day that is good for the local and global community too.”
Our Giving Tuesday
Project This Year
Families Give Back
DO YOU LIVE IN PTBO COUNTY?
If so, we are inviting you to participate in this year's GivingTuesday project "Families Give Back". This is a volunteer event, no donation required (but always accepted of course),
To accommodate those who work on GivingTuesday the 29th of November, we will host the special food packing event on Saturday November 19th and count the effort towards “Giving Tuesday”. A certificate of appreciation will be given to each volunteer as a remembrance of the impact they made. We will host the event at our warehouse - 649 The Parkway, Unit 5, Peterborough, ON.
Each person will pack for one 2-hour shift. Multiplied by the number in your family, that adds up to quite a significant impact! If we receive the minimum number of families interested, we will advise you that the pack is on! So, reserve the date now.
Please click here to let us know who is signing up (out of towners welcome!) in this awesome event celebrating "The Global Day of Generosity". This is always great fun and so rewarding!
