Giving Tuesday 2016 November 24th, 2016

GivingTuesday is a National Giving Day.

Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday …now GivingTuesday is coming to Canada on November 29, 2016.

It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.

“We have two days that are good for the economy. Now we have a day that is good for the community too.”

Thank you for considering Today House.
