#GivingTuesdayNow is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity--to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and heal.
On May 5, 2020 we invite you to consider donating to the FCJ Retreat & Conference Centre and other Canadian Charities for Giving Tuesday Now.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, normally taking place each year after Black Friday. After much reflection and discussion, Giving Tuesday Global has decided to hold a Giving Tuesday on May 5th, 2020: #GivingTuesdayNow as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.
Together, we will take action on behalf of first responders, as well as the world's other - often forgotten - frontline workers: the non-profits and community organizations that feed, house, educate, and nurture people and communities impacted by the global pandemic.
Giving Tuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, Giving Tuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.

whether it’s helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts.
At a time when we are all experiencing the pandemic, generosity is what brings people of all races, faiths, and political views together across the globe. Generosity gives everyone the power to make a positive change in the lives of others and is a fundamental value anyone can act on.
Generosity can help alleviate the isolation and loneliness that many of us feel during this time. Our ability to give help and hope can counter feelings of powerlessness.
Even as we practice physical distancing, we can remain connected through kindness and generosity even without physical proximity. There is no reason that our physical separation means we can’t provide the financial, emotional and social supports that nurture our families and communities.
Even in times of economic crisis, we each have a deep reserve of generosity, which we can deploy in myriad ways to make a difference--your time, your kindness, your skills, your voice are all things you can give in addition to charitable donations.
