Help Us Reach Our Goal This Giving Tuesday!
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday… But do you know about Giving Tuesday? It's happening tomorrow, November 28, 2017!
What is Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a Canadian movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
As you may or may not know, AdaptAbilties is a registered charity! We count on the support of donors like you to help us change the lives of those with disabilities each and every day.
This Giving Tuesday, we have a goal to reach $5,000 in new donations as part of our larger 2017 fundraising goal of $50,000. It may seem lofty, but any amount that you can donate helps! A donation as low as $5 can pay for small items like bus tickets - helping connect individuals to community! A $50 donation covers the cost of out of school care activities for one month, giving parents peace of mind! $100 provides 10, yes 10 social nights for one youth, which helps them build friendships and independence.

Our monthly supporters help us give the gift that keeps on giving - empowering individuals with special needs to grow, succeed, and belong! For just $20 each month (that means giving up 4 venti Starbucks lattes, 15 Tim Horton's double doubles, or 2 lunches out!), you can support an individual in our community! Now that is an expense our wallets can buy into!
While financial donations are always appreciated, there are other ways to give back on Giving Tuesday. Volunteering is a great way to give back your time to those who need it and we are always looking for qualified, reliable volunteers.

There are no shortage of ways to support AdaptAbilities’ vision of inclusion, one person at a time.

We look forward to reaching our goals for 2017 - watch our website for the Giving Tuesday thermometer, and follow us on social media using the hashtag #strongertogether!
