#GivingTuesday is the perfect time to give back with small acts of kindness.
#GivingTuesday is a global social movement that takes place each year on the Tuesday that follows the frenzied shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, GivingTuesday falls on Tuesday, November 28th.
This worldwide event was created in 2012 in partnership with the United Nations Foundation to encourage people to give back to their community through charitable donations and volunteer activities.
It’s been such a huge success that last year in Canada, a record-breaking 50 million dollars was raised in the 24 hours that GivingTuesday took place!
Our local charities need our support more than ever, so consider making a donation to your favourite local charity or perhaps volunteering your time at the local food bank.
Even the smallest acts of kindness can make a huge difference! If you know someone who’s struggling, consider reaching out and brightening up their day by running a few errands or dropping off some nice food for them to enjoy.
