Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday but did you know about GivingTuesday on November 29th, 2016?
Giving Tuesday is a 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.”
GivingTuesday inspires personal philanthropy and encourages bigger, better and smarter charitable giving during the holiday season, showing that the world truly gives as good as it gets. Where did the idea come from? The retail industry has long benefited from seasonal shopping that symbolically kicks off with “Black Friday” – a day that has since inspired “Small Business Saturday” and “Cyber Monday.” GivingTuesday, serves as a celebratory, fully connected day to kick off the giving season, when many make their holiday and end‐of‐year charitable gifts.
