National Day of Giving in Canada in 2023

Giving Tuesday is a time where Canadians are asked to focus on ways to contribute to their community and improve the lives of others.

The Tuesday after Thanksgiving is a national holiday known as Giving Tuesday.

The day celebrates people financially supporting their favorite local charities or non-profits. It is also celebrated to promote the making of gifts rather than purchasing them.

GivingTuesday is a day where you can give back. It’s an unofficial holiday that’s celebrated the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, which falls on Nov. 30 this year.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 at the 92nd Street Y and its Belfer Center for Innovation & Social Impact in New York City. Now, it’s an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

"It is an opportunity for people around the world to come together through generosity in all its forms by sharing acts of kindness and giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes," GivingTuesday said on its website.

According to USA Today, over $2.5 billion was donated on the annual day of giving back last year.
