We want to hear from you! Share, Donate, Get Involved!
The Holidays are coming as are the pressures to find the perfect gift. As many people know, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are notorious for their unheard-of deals and sales on products, so much so that they have become the biggest spending days of the year. Six years, ago, in response to this, #GivingTuesday was born and has quickly become the biggest giving day of the year. #GivingTuesday is a global day of giving and this year, December 3, 2019, will mark the 7th annual #GivingTuesday in Canada. It is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favorite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for #GivingTuesday
The campaign 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; it unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another (from https://givingtuesday.ca)
TIPES is taking part in this campaign this year, and we want to hear from you. We are looking for parents, children, teens, and frontline workers in the Autism + TIPES Community to come forward and share their stories with us; whether it be a challenge they overcame, an incredible #wowmoment or something that changed their life. We want to share your story and raise awareness of this amazing community.
In addition, keep an eye on our website and this space for monthly contributions from individuals connected to TIPES and the local Autism Community.
In addition, funds raised will help offset costs to families accessing services at TIPES, and will help lift some of the the financial burden from families.
IF you or anyone you know would like to either participate and/or donate (one time or monthly donations) to TIPES x GIVING TUESDAY 2019-2020, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to https://givingtuesday.ca/partners/thinking-in-pictures-educational-services
