Giving Tuesday is here! Arriving on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Tuesday, December 2 is considered the opening day of the giving season.
Today, everyone is encouraged to help kick off the giving season by getting involved and supporting The Scarborough Hospital. And it’s easy… just complete the online donation form.
Giving Tuesday is a new Canadian movement for giving that takes place each year after Cyber Monday. It is an opportunity to celebrate giving and to encourage charitable activities. It is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
It was started in the United States in 2012 by the UN Foundation, the 92nd Street Y and several other charities and companies. Giving Tuesday is now in Canada where it was started by a group of organizations including GIV3, CanadaHelps.org and others; and now includes over 1,900 partners.
