Giving Tuesday – the global day of giving

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, imagine a day dedicated to giving back, around the world, across Canada and in our community. Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season; GivingTuesday marks the giving season’s opening day. Visit www.givingtuesday.ca for more information. Canada, join us for the 9th annual GivingTuesday on November 30, 2021.

 

What is GivingTuesday?

GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about or give some of what you have to those in need. Over the past nine years, it has since grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. GivingTuesday is a time when Canadians, charities, and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits; to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need. Every act of generosity counts. Everybody has something to give.

 

– President Barack Obama – “Around the world, #GivingTuesday is a grassroots movement that illustrates the impact we can have when we all pull together. The investments we make— in both time and funding—can help solve the urgent problems of today and will make the next generation stronger.“

 

DID YOU KNOW? In 2020 it is estimated that over 6 million Canadians did something to support their favourite causes for GivingTuesday!

Help someone afflicted with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD)

What is Duchenne? It’s a degenerative muscle disease, afflicting mostly young boys 1-3500. It’s a fatal disease with no cure, taking muscle strength away and leaving young adults in a wheelchair and premature death in their late twenties. Many treatments are on the horizon, but we need your help to raise awareness and funds because there is no time to lose people afflicted with DMD. Our organization raises funds for promising research and raises awareness to have a unified DMD community across Canada quickly access new treatment.

 

How to contribute to our cause:

There is no small amount!

Our organization aims to unite the DMD community to raise awareness around a common objective: providing access to new treatments as fast as possible and funding promising research projects. We also raise funds for two promising research-based in Canada.
