What Is Giving Tuesday?


Many people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday…but now there’s Giving Tuesday! It’s coming to Canada on December 3, 2013 – save the date!

This new Canadian day for giving and volunteering will be taking place each year after Cyber Monday. As the opening day of the giving season, it’s a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for their favourite causes, and support and think about others.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto has joined the movement – and we hope you will too!

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more – it can be anything from a big or small financial gift, volunteering time or even just helping to spread the word about the causes you care about.

We will be working to get the word out about the impact mentoring has on the children and youth of Toronto, and our commitment to provide the highest quality, volunteer-based mentoring programs. With your help, we can continue to give the gift of mentorship to children on our wait list and change the trajectory of a child’s life.

Be a part of a national celebration of generosity.
