Black Friday/Cyber Monday are about deals; GivingTuesday is about giving back – “the opening day of the giving season,” if you will. GivingTuesday proves that the holidays can be about both giving and giving back. It celebrates how Canadians can do more with their wallets than just shop– and that we can give as good as we get. (And hey! This community is already pretty good at that! You’ve shown how generous you are by contributing to The Caring Cupboard during Fine Free September.)
On a national scale, GivingTuesday unifies charities, corporations, small business, and individuals from across the globe to show that the world gives as good as it gets. You don’t have to be a world leader or a billionaire to give back. GivingTuesday is about ordinary people coming together doing extraordinary things. The donation size doesn’t matter. What matters is that you get involved. What matters is that you spread the word about local charities and organizations, like St. Thomas Public Library, and how they help the community grow and flourish. GivingTuesday is the perfect time for the world to come together and show how powerful humanity can be when we unite to give on one day and Feel Great Giving.
