Love this concept! When you go out shopping on Black Monday and Cyber Monday just for deals consider spending some of you money on a Charity! The Red Cross is doing amazing work in the Philippines as well as here at home! 🙂 stay tuned for #GivingTuesday on Dec3 2013
You’ve surely heard of Black Friday and maybe even Cyber Monday, days when retailers attract shoppers with deals and discounts ahead of the holidays. But what if we could harness that same kind of enthusiasm for charitable giving? That’s exactly the goal of Giving Tuesday.
The movement started last year in the U.S., and quickly drew the attention of celebrities, charities and ordinary folks online with the #givingtuesday hashtag. It wasn’t just talk though, people donated, got involved in their community and found new ways of giving back.
Now Giving Tuesday is coming to Canada and the Canadian Red Cross is taking part. Mark your calendar because December 3 is about taking action to help people in need, from giving to volunteering.
Stay tuned for more details on how you can show your support on Giving Tuesday.
