10 great ways people can join in for #GivingTuesdayCa!


Over the past 10 years GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement with hundreds of millions of people participating in whatever ways they can.

With active movements in over 85 countries, we work year-round to inspire generosity around the world, with a common mission to create a world where giving is part of everyday life. If you can show generosity and share kindness, you have something to give!

Here are 10 ideas to help you inspire giving in your community:

  1. Look for a local fundraiser, community drive or coordinated event to join others in your area.
  2. Reach out to a neighbour in need: send them a card, cook them a meal, bake them some treats, or share a coffee with them.
  3. Announce on social media that you are participating in #GivingTuesdayCa and encourage others to do the same.
  4. Sell old items and donate the proceeds to a local charity on GivingTuesday.
  5. Share your giving story by posting an #UNselfie. This is a post on social media that shares a message about why you give back. Download the template here.
  6. Spend local. Purchases your holiday gifts from local businesses or order take out from a neighbourhood restaurant.
  7. Pick up trash in your neighbourhood.
  8. Create sidewalk chalk designs. Share messages about world unity, inspiring kindness, or give love to your city/town. Share your photos on your social channels on November 29th. Don’t forget to tag us: #GivingTuesdayCa
  9. Educate yourself on how you can help and support local organizations working to fight climate change.
  10. Help inspire others by sharing good news stories on your social media channels. Showcase all the good happening in your community. Check out #GivingTuesdayCa’s Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok and LinkedIn channels for inspiration.
