GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that falls annually after the frenzied commercialism of Black Friday, Shop-Local-Saturday, and Cyber Monday.

GivingTuesday is an open movement about giving back.

GIV3 and CanadaHelps are co-founders of GivingTuesday in Canada. The movement now engages more than 7,000 charities (and businesses) and millions of Canadians from coast to coast to coast.

Check out the latest impact results from GivingTuesday by visiting the website below, and/or get involved.  Charities which participate in GivingTuesday gain more versus the charities which do not participate.
