Tuesday, December 3 kicks off the first Giving Tuesday in Canada. Giving Tuesday was developed in response to the intensely commercial Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Giving Tuesday attempts to give us all a bit of balance by focusing on philanthropy.
For most, Giving Tuesday is just another Tuesday – over 80% of Canadians give to charity every year. Even if you already give to charity, consider this a chance to see if there is something else you can do. For example, if you already volunteer and give to charity, maybe you should consider registering as an organ donor.
If you are thinking of how you can make an even bigger impact on our community this Giving Tuesday, feel free to contact me.
This Giving Tuesday, let’s see if we can all give a bit more.
