GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
This year, GivingTuesday falls on November 30th and Seniors Outreach will be fundraising on the Give65 platform specially dedicated to non-profits working with older adults.
We are focusing our effort on helping seniors who are unable to afford food and require volunteers to go to the food bank for them.
We believe that by helping older adults connect and be independent, we can help enhance the quality of their lives.
