Celebrating Champions of Change on a Global Day of Giving

Presented on December 1

It represents a global movement for giving and volunteering. It’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes, harnessing the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities. Annually around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another, bringing together a unique blend of partners – non-profits, civic organizations, corporations, families and individuals – to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness.

On December 1, we marked this day of global giving with a powerful discussion among leaders looking to make a difference. We explored how now, more than ever, consumers are wanting to align themselves with organizations that are making a difference, the role that they can play in making an authentic and positive impact, and finally, how we can all become an ally, partner, and champion of change.
