Giving Tuesday

After the shopping sprees on Black Friday, and the hours spent online on Cyber Monday, today we take a moment to be reminded to give back. There is no act more selfless or kind than giving back to the community. Every act of gratitude, --be it donating canned goods to the food bank, dropping some loonies in the Salvation Army bin, or volunteering time at the humane society—makes a difference.

Today on #GivingTuesday, I encourage you to go out and give back even if it is in a small way. Charities and organizations all across Canada have come together for this day by pledging to match donations and have made donating simple by creating a text-to-donate option. There are so many terrific opportunities out there, and we have a chance to make them even better!
