There’s BlackFriday and CyberMonday, but do you know about GivingTuesday?
Held on December 1st #GivingTuesdayCA 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.
What is Mercy Ships Canada doing this year?
Mercy Ships volunteers make a lifestyle out of giving and over four days we are going to introduce you to some of our Canadian and international volunteers and describe what they do. Who knows, they could end up being your neighbour!
Starting on Black Friday and leading up to #GivingTuesdayCA our social media accounts will be filled with stories of volunteers giving back, with a special announcement being made on December 1st (GivingTuesdayCA)!
How can you get involved?
Follow us on Facebook and Twitter and help us share the story of our volunteers and friends with your online community! Sharing is a great way you can give back, because the more Canadians know about Mercy Ships, the more people we can help and the more lives we can change.
