Sharing stories. Encouraging generosity.

#VanGives is a civic movement participating in the global #GivingTuesday initiative. We share inspiring stories + encourage generosity in our local communities!

On November 27 we’re kicking off the season of giving by helping charities, nonprofits, individuals + businesses spread the word about the great work they do in Vancouver. From volunteering, to awareness, to helping a stranger, or making donations, #VanGives asks for your participation to share with the world how generous Vancouver is.

Share, tag + trend with us here:
