GivingTuesdayNow is Tuesday May 5 2020!

GivingTuesdayNow is May 5 2020!

GivingTuesday Global has decided to hold a GivingTuesday on May 5th, 2020: #GivingTuesdayNow. The goal is to do what GivingTuesday does best: rally the world to drive a massive, collective spike of generosity, citizen engagement, business and philanthropy activation, and support for communities and non-profits around the world. #GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity to serve as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Your support will help strengthen the mission of the PKD Foundation of Canada by advancing programs of research, education, advocacy, support and awareness.

Together we give. Together we stand. Together we thank. Together we help. Together we heal.

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

People can show their generosity in a variety of ways during #GivingTuesdayNow: 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.
