While the Friday after American Thanksgiving is “Black Friday” and Monday is “Cyber Monday”, there is a growing movement across Canada for “GIVING TUESDAY”.
This is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. Billed as the “Opening Day of the Giving Season”, this is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
This year United Way Chatham-Kent is proud to be a partner in this movement.
“Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity for United Way to encourage donations to this year’s United Way campaign which supports over 30 agencies, programs and services serving one-in-three residents throughout Chatham-Kent”, said Karen Kirkwood-Whyte, CEO.
