Giving Tuesday – Okanagan Civic Movement
November 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
GivingTuesday is a National Giving Day
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday … GivingTuesday is happening across Canada on November 27, 2018.
It 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.
Giving Tuesday Okanagan Civic Movement
The Giving Tuesday Okanagan civic movement kicked off in 2015 with mayoral proclamation events in all 3 major cities: Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon. Our goal for 2018 is to to encourage organizations and individuals to consider ways to encourage our communities to GIVE. The Okanagan Community is very generous and we all contribute to it’s success. “Giving Tuesday” and any other Tuesday in the future is an opportunity to make a difference.
