GivingTuesday Looks To Inspire Generosity

By Brad Perry Nov 29, 2022 | 5:00 AM

Millions of Canadians are expected to take part in the 10th annual GivingTuesday.

It started in 2012 as a way to celebrate our human inclination to give after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The idea has since grown into a global movement that inspires people in more than 85 countries globally.

Canadians are encouraged to take part in their own way, whether it is by giving time, acts of kindness, or financial support.

“Even in times of economic and geo-political uncertainty, we each have a deep reserve of generosity that we can use in different ways to make a difference,” said Teresa Marques, president and CEO of the Rideau Hall Foundation, a supporting partner of GivingTuesday.

“Giving time, talent, or our voices are all things we can do in addition to giving financial donations.”

Organizers say inspiring generosity is more important than ever this year, given the higher demand many charities are facing.

A recent Ipsos poll conducted by CanadaHelps found 22 per cent of Canadians plan to access charitable services to meet essential needs like food and shelter in the next six months, up from 14 per cent in January.

GivingTuesday has set up an interactive map showing all of the local partners taking part. You can find it by clicking here.
