Get ready for GivingTuesday!

Looking for those Black Friday deals? Hoping to save some cash when you shop on Cyber Monday? Thinking about how to use your extra money?
Or maybe you’re concerned about the frantic rush that happens around American Thanksgiving and the lead-up to Christmas, and looking for ways to focus your attention and resources on the common good as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Our Lord.
Either way, we've got you covered with GivingTuesday on November 29, the day after Cyber Monday. It’ll also be two days into Advent, a good time to take up the time-honoured practices of almsgiving, prayer, and fasting.
So, what is GivingTuesday? Here're some facts from www.givingtuesday.ca/about:
  • It started right here in Canada in 2013. Canada Helps partnered with 14 other organizations that support nonprofits across the country.
  • GivingTuesday is now in over 80 countries around the globe, as they seek to “inspire generosity around the world” and “create a world where giving is part of everyday life.”
  • On GivingTuesday 2021, millions of Canadians showed up!
    • 47 Canadian organizations took part.
    • Online donations totaled $43.6 million.
    • 600 lbs of food was given out to those in need, including 24 turkeys!
    • 800 ducks were preserved in wetlands.
That’s some amazing momentum! And you have the opportunity to join in this year, by contributing to charities, nonprofits, and faith-based and community organizations in Canada.
Salt + Light Media is such an organization. We rely on your generosity to produce our inspiring, uplifting and enriching Catholic television and digital media offerings.
So, if you're so inclined, please consider giving to Salt + Light Media this November 29, at slmedia.org/donate.
