ONPARA Launches 2020 GivingTuesday Campaign
Give the gift of sport & recreation by supporting our ‘Bridging the Gap’ program this GivingTuesday
This GivingTuesday, the Ontario Para Network is continuing to provide sport opportunities for youth and adults with physical disabilities through ‘Bridging the Gap’, our flagship awareness, outreach, and first-involvement program.
Since 2013, GivingTuesday has united millions of Canadians to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live. So far more than 7,500 Canadian charities, businesses and community groups have used GivingTuesday to rally generosity and help make the world a better place in countless ways. Around the globe there are official GivingTuesday movements in over 70 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Kenya, Slovenia, Tanzania, the UK and more. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
GivingTuesday 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 when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. https://givingtuesday.ca/
