Today marks a global day of giving and unity through the #GivingTuesdayNow movement. The day is a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19 and aims to encourage community and non-profit support, citizenship engagement and generosity worldwide.

Recognizing that giving and gratitude are two powerful contributors to happiness, here are some ways you may wish to consider participating in #GivingTuesdayNow:

  • Make a charitable donation to an organization important to you
  • Buy gift cards for a local business, or leave them a positive online review
  • Reach out to a friend, neighbour, family member, or coworker
