Together We (Canadian Hearts)

This May 5th, anyone and everyone can join in and support others on #GivingTuesdayNow. We’re all in this together, so let’s do some good together!

Even as we practice physical distancing, we can remain connected through kindness and generosity. We can still provide financial, emotional and social supports to nurture our communities.

Share your Giving Story: Write your favourite “Together we” message on social media with a short explanation of what you’re doing to help your community on May 5, and show others how to give together even when we’re apart. Don’t forget to use #GivingTuesdayNow, #GivingTuesdayCa, and #MardiJeDonneMaintenant.

Sidewalk Chalk Designs (great for kids and wannabe kids alike!):
Create messages about world unity, thanking frontline workers, or giving love to your city/town. You can do this any time the week before (to avoid rain or maybe even snow – yikes!) so you have your photos ready! Sharing your photos on May 5th is the most important thing and don’t forget to use #GivingTuesdayNow, #GivingTuesdayCa, and #MardiJeDonneMaintenant.

Hearts in Windows: In the weeks and days leading up to #GivingTuesdayNow, reach out to your local community to show you’re with them. Print, draw, or paint the #GivingTuesday heart somewhere that your neighbours can see. Get creative and get your whole family involved. Share your photos and include your favourite “Together we” message on social media and don’t forget to use #GivingTuesdayNow, #GivingTuesdayCa, and #MardiJeDonneMaintenant.
