Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday … now we have GivingTuesday, December 3rd, 2019. It is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season”, it’s a time where charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes.
CoDevelopment Canada is a B.C.-based NGO that works for social change and global education in the Americas. Founded in 1985 by a group of activists who wanted to go beyond financial aid, CoDev builds partnerships between like-minded organizations in Canada and Latin America to foster learning, social change, and community empowerment. These partnerships educate Canadians about Latin America and allow them to directly support the region. Such connections build solidarity, mutual understanding and ultimately improve prospects for a fairer global order.
