After Black Friday & Cyber Monday Comes Giving Tuesday

GivingTuesday is a global day of giving meant to inspire people and corporations

It’s Cyber Monday. This comes after a few days of Black Friday deal hunting or watching people line-up or even fight over discounted products. Tuesday is a day to give back. GivingTuesday follows that hectic shopping frenzy. It’s a global movement meant to inspire people and corporations to give instead of get.

Last year, an estimated six million Canadians took part in GivingTuesday You don’t have to spend money, just do something good. The day is meant to inspire acts of kindness in big or small ways.

“These days it’s easy to focus on the things that pull us apart,” says Marina Glogovac, President and CEO, CanadaHelps, co-founders of the movement. “But, GivingTuesday is one of those rare things that brings the entire world together.”

In Canada in 2018, there were more than 7,000 registered partners as well as 41 local community movements celebrating GivingTuesday. And Canadians donated over $15 million online in 24 hours.
