For MJKO, Giving Tuesday marks the start of the holiday season and we want to celebrate with you! In case you have not heard about Giving Tuesday, this special holiday began through social media in 2012 (#GivingTuesday) and it is a day dedicated to charitable acts across North America. Giving Tuesday recognizes how easy it is to become caught up in holiday spending during events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday and allows us all to take a step back and focus on the causes that desperately need our support through monetary donations and/or volunteerism. MJKO is one of these organizations and today, I’m asking that you think about the sport and recreation sector and consider how our programs have made a positive difference for youth across Toronto When thinking about MJKO, can you remember how a coach or volunteer impacted a group of students in a positive way? Can you recall the new friendships formed and new skills obtained? Can you still feel the joy you first experienced while watching our youth experience success they never dreamed possible? If so, we ask that you think about making a donation to MJKO and specifically, our MJKO’s Youth Coaches for Cuba campaign. This unique youth based exchange will be supporting 5 young certified coaches gain valuable leadership training and pay it forward to kids in need. To learn more about the program, please visit http://ycfc.mjko.ca/ and know that every donation, however small or large, will bring about more positive changes for the youth in our community. Please accept MJKO's best wishes as we begin this beautiful holiday season together.
