Giving Tuesday is December 3rd

20 November 2019

GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.

GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change to communities. It provides a platform to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to help those in need. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners – nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations – as well as families and individuals – to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

This GivingTuesday, Mercy Ships is raising funds to give free surgeries and medical capacity building to the people of Senegal. We hope you will partner with us on December 3rd to bring hope and healing to children, families and communities in need!
