Every year, on the Tuesday that follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Canadians join together to support their favourite causes.
GivingTuesday is a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across Canada and in countries around the world. Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.
This year we have partnered with Mindset Wealth, an investment advisory firm based out of the Comox Valley, to help your gift go even further. Until December 31st, 2017, Mindset Wealth will match all one-time and monthly donations up to a total of $5,000. That means we have the potential to raise $10,000 towards building strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. Donate today, and every $50 you give turns into $100!
We have also introduced a gift catalogue, allowing donors to choose from the many tangible items that make up a Habitat build. Whether you choose to give a gift yourself or dedicate it to a loved one by sending a free eCard, you’ll feel good giving knowing the impact your donation will have.
Proceeds from this campaign will raise money for our upcoming multi-phase build projects on Hilchey Road in Campbell River and Lake Trail Road in the Comox Valley. These projects will eventually provide safe and affordable homes for 21 North Island families, with lasting and growing benefits to over 50 children.
We also encourage you to take the GivingTuesday pledge. Let CanadaHelps know how you will support Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North, and we will be entered to win a $5,000 donation!
GivingTuesday, the global day of generosity, continues to gain traction across the country in its fourth year, with thousands of partner organizations and millions of Canadians expected to take part. Since 2013, GivingTuesday has united millions of Canadians to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
