What is Giving TuesdayCA?

It 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 favorite causes and think about others.

What is Giving Crewday?

Giving Crewday is a day Mercy Ship Canada encourages Canadians to join the Mercy Ships crew (which is made up of everyone who supports Mercy Ships!) to support our medical and training programs in Africa and maximize impact!


Why should I give to Mercy Ships?

5 billion people lack access to safe surgery. For almost 40 years Mercy Ships has been serving the world’s poor and providing free medical care, training, and infrastructure development.

Our mission is to leave a lasting impact in the countries we visit so that they have the knowledge and resources needed to provide safe, accessible and timely surgery.

Our donors and volunteers keep Mercy Ships afloat. Every dollar makes a difference and means Mercy Ships can continue to help those most in need and transform lives!
