Halton Gives


#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Halton Gives, the local civic movement, invites all Halton residents, charities and businesses to join us in demonstrating the power of kindness and generosity.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 5th, 2020!

And think about how you’d like to get involved in the day.

For individuals and families:
  • Help spread the word. Activate your social media and make sure to POST-LIKE-SHARE as much #GivingTuesdayNow content as possible. Don’t forget to use #GivingTuesdayNow, #GivingTuesdayCa, and #HaltonGives.
  • Sidewalk Chalk Designs. Create messages about world unity, thanking frontline workers, or giving love to Halton. Don’t forget to share your photos on social media.
  • 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. And don’t forget to share your photos on social media.
  • Share your stories of “good”. Write your favourite “Together we” message on social media with a short explanation of what you’re doing to help your community on May 5th and show others how to give together even when we’re apart. Then, pin your story or act of generosity on the global giving map, activate your network to do the same, and mostly important share your photos online!

  • Reach out and say “thank you”. Send emails thanking those that have, and continue to, support your organization; Let them know about the impact they have made on your cause; and Add heart-warming photos of those they’ve helped by supporting your mission.
  • Celebrate your accomplishments.
