Today is Canada’s second year celebrating GivingTuesday!
For those of you who didn’t hear about it last year, GivingTuesday is an international movement created in response to the rampant consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Launched in the U.S. in 2012, GivingTuesday is more than just a day, contrary to what the name implies. It is the opening day of the giving season; it is both a call to action and a day to celebrate our donors and volunteers. Today, we share our philanthropic stories and revel in the spirit of generosity.
In the spirit of GivingTuesday, we'd love for you to get to know the new faces of the 2014-2015 YONA-Sistema participants, and invite you take a look at our newly updated photos! All of the children that you see in these photos are so grateful for all of the support that you provide to YONA. We hope that you enjoy giving today, in any way that you can!
