Giv­ing Tues­day

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

For the first time, Cen­traide Estrie is the of­fi­cial part­ner of the cross-Canada move­ment Giv­ing Tues­day, which is a na­tional ‘day of giv­ing’. On De­cem­ber 2nd, Giv­ing Tues­day would like peo­ple across the coun­try to give what they can.

A grow­ing num­ber of Cana­dian busi­nesses take part in ‘Black Fri­day’ or ‘Cy­ber Mon­day’. Giv­ing Tues­day falls on the day after those com­mer­cial days and kicks off the hol­i­day sea­son in an apro­pos way. This move­ment calls on those who have prof­ited from the sales of the two days be­fore to do­nate some of what they saved, both in­di­vid­u­als and busi­nesses.

Cen­traide Estrie’s an­nual cam­paign ends on Jan­uary 31st, 2015. The ob­jec­tive is to raise $1,660,500 in or­der to of­fer vi­tal support to close to 70 com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions in Estrie. On De­cem­ber 2nd, support Cen­traide Estrie by mak­ing a do­na­tion on their se­cure web­page at www.cen­traideestrie.com.
