Giving Tuesday 2015
What is #GivingTuesday?
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday… now we have #GivingTuesday a national day of giving, celebrated on December 1st, 2015.
It is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. As 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.
This #GivingTuesday choose to #SeeDifferent
See Different is a movement launched by the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion in schools for students to empower themselves and embark on a discovery of self and differences – and become agents of change. We’re hearing moving stories of transformation when barriers of prejudice and discrimination are broken down.
“I liked how you redefined leadership, how it does not have to be this generalized idea that society puts in front of us.”
“I learned that there are small things that can make a big impact in others’ lives.”
“It really helped me think about who I am as a person.”
– See Different students
This program is a focus of our charitable status as an organization. As we offer See Different at no cost to participating schools, we’re extremely thankful for the revenue from valued donors and partners that extends our impact to include tomorrow’s leaders, our youth.
Help us, help the world #SeeDifferent.
