Island charities are saying thank-you to Islanders as part of this year’s #GivingTuesday, which is today.
#GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering and takes place each year after Black Friday.
It marks the opening day of the giving season, and it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals can join together and rally for favorite causes.
PEI’s #GivingTuesday Community Leaders are hoping Island charities will share pictures and video on-line on the many acts of kindness throughout the day.
Several Island charities are participating this year and Premier Wade MacLauchlan has proclaimed #GivingTuesday an Island-wide event.
It’s also a great reminder to everyone to make their charitable gift with the 2017 tax season coming to a close.
