GivingTuesday Waterloo Region

GivingTuesday always follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday as a day for businesses, individuals, groups and charities to join together to rally for favourite causes, create opportunities and share meaningful experiences. Whether it’s raising awareness, volunteering or fundraising, GivingTuesday is our day to celebrate the importance and impact of giving back.

Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday marks the start of the giving season. To make a donation to KW Counselling Services, click here.

Harnessing our generous spirit

GivingTuesday Waterloo Region will tap into community advocates, partners and leaders to encourage everyone to give what they can – whether it’s time, goods, or
funds. The more awareness is created, the more giving activity will take place. Our Region will rely on three ingredients to be successful:

1. People talking to people – Everyone is encouraged to advocate and promote GivingTuesday Waterloo Region using their contacts and connections, particularly on social media. Posts, tweets/retweets with a single message, a single hashtag and a single purpose will bring the networks of many to one convenient giving platform.

2. www.givingtuesdaywr.ca – This new site is a single destination to learn about and donate to all local charities and non-profits.

3. A supportive community – Waterloo Region is truly a giving community. With more than 500,000 residents, there is a lot of charitable potential.
