Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2017
November 28 is Giving Tuesday, a global celebration of generosity. Giving Tuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the kindness of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities, providing a platform to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. Across Canada and around the world, Giving Tuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
Research has shown that people feel happier after giving to charitable causes, and the emotional rewards of generosity are greatest in situations that facilitate social connection. Good deeds become good feelings when we have a personal connection to the cause we are supporting.
With 1 in 5 Canadians experiencing mental illness or addiction, community services that support wellness and recovery truly touch us all. This Giving Tuesday, consider making a contribution to support AMHS-KFLA’s vision of wellness, acceptance and a sense of belonging for all who experience mental illness or addiction. Your gift supports individuals in need on the road to recovery.
