The power of giving back

GivingTuesday December 1rst

Giving Tuesday – the global day of giving

Join us for the 8th annual Giving Tuesday on December 1rst, 2020!

GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s a time when Canadians, charities and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits. There is no “right” way to participate as long as it supports generosity and giving. Donate, volunteer time, help a neighbour, or spread the word.

GivingTuesday was started in Canada by a group of organizations, including GIV3CanadaHelps.org, and now includes over 6,500 partners. GivingTuesday was originally started in the US in 2012 by the NYC 92Y and several other community organizations.

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 to 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 participating in the funding of promising research projects. We also raise funds for two promising research-based in Canada.
