Vancouver Foundation thanks the Vancouver Mayor's Office and Mayor Gregor Robertson for officially proclaiming December 2nd, Giving Tuesday in Vancouver.
Giving Tuesday is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
And we believe it's a perfect time to connect with you and ask: What moves you to give?
Do BC rescue puppies need a leg up? Do you know a group that helps seniors get around town? Can the Food Bank use some more food?
We would love to hear more about the charities, non-profits, social groups and causes in your community that inspire you to give, and to create an opportunity to share our ideas with each other.
You can share your favourite causes with us on social media on Twitter and Facebook, and get to know the people and causes that have moved and inspired your community here on our dedicated Giving Tuesday page.
Help us spread the word today! Share your favourites on social media using #GivingTuesdayCa and #GiveBC.
