If you can show generosity and share kindness, you have something to give!

#GivingTuesdayCA is about giving of all types. Even as we practice physical distancing, we can remain connected through kindness and generosity. Individuals can still provide financial, emotional and social supports to nurture our communities. Join us in this movement as we unleash generosity across Canada and around the world.

Here are 10 ideas to help you inspire giving in your community:

  1. Look for a local fundraiser, community drive or coordinated event to join others in your area or with your same interests in giving back. Click here to find a civic movement in your area so you can find what’s happening in your community.
  1. Reach out to a neighbour in need: send them a card, cook them a meal, bake them some treats, or give them a call to check in.
  1. Show gratitude to healthcare workers, service providers, and other essential workers who are making sure we still have the services we rely on, even at risk to their own health.
  1. Add a #GivingTuesdayCA Facebook Frame to your profile to show that you’re giving back.
  1. Share your giving story by posting an #Unselfie. This is a post on social media that shares a message about why you give back. Download the template here.
