Today is Giving Tuesday – time to give back, just because you can

Today, November 29th, is ‘Giving Tuesday‘ and it is the world’s largest generosity movement.

“Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a stranger, or giving to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts, and everyone has something to give.”

‘Giving Tuesday’ was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good.

The idea caught on, and has grown around the world, inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

“In Canada, ‘Giving Tuesday’ was founded in 2013  by, GIV3 and several other founding partners. GivingTuesday has active movements in more than 80 countries, working year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to create a world where giving is part of everyday life.”

Within just a few years ‘Giving Tuesday’ has grown into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people participating in whatever ways they can.

Today, give back with kindness, help or a donation to your favourite charity or cause … just because you can.
