Halifax Mayor Proclaims GivingTuesday

Mike Savage, Mayor of the City of Halifax has officially proclaimed December 2, 2014 "GivingTuesday" – one of a growing number of municipalities in Canada to do so in 2014. Last year, more than 10,000 partners took part in GivingTuesday globally. GivingTuesday is a first of its kind effort that harnesses the collective power of a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, and give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they care about. In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become North America’s biggest shopping days, GivingTuesday harnesses the power of social media to create a national movement around the holidays dedicated to giving.
