What is Giving Tuesday?

Posted on November 24, 2017

You have probably heard about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These commercial holidays created by marketing companies make it seem as if this season is about aggressive consumerism and material gifts.

Giving Tuesday is the complete opposite. This coming Tuesday, people around the world will join the movement to support volunteerism and philanthropic giving. We are inviting you to pause and reconnect with the good things about this season: generosity, kindness, and community.  

We believe that the most impactful action you can take today is to make donation to your favourite cause. You can help us create a heathier environmental future for all Calgarians. If you choose, you can make a tax deductible donation to Green Calgary below.

To see more about what's going on in Calgary for Giving Tuesday, check out the hastag #GivingTuesday on Twitter or Facebook. If you choose to make a donation to a green or sustainable charity, let us know with the hastag #EveryActionCounts!
