Giving Tuesday is happening on December 2nd, and in standard Guelph format, we’ve given this wonderful concept a life of it’s own. Guelph Gives is aiming to make Guelph Canada’s most generous city (we’ve even been challenged by Regina!) and believe that Guelphites are up to the challenge.
1 City. 1 Day. $1 Million.
Transition Guelph is so excited to be participating in the wonderful events of Giving Tuesday. Guelph Gives is hosting a Giving Fair at Old Quebec Street Mall from 10am-6pm on December 2nd where you can go to learn about some of the amazing organizations in Guelph working to make Guelph a better place. You’ll be able to sign up for volunteer opportunities, make donations, and celebrate the day with us! At Stone Road Mall from 10-2pm you can participate in Charity Plinko (which just sounds awesome) and there will also be a free skate at the Sleeman arena from 11:30-1:30pm.
As a participating organization, TG is focusing on a few “asks” from you, the people!
OUR GUELPH GIVES GOALS:
- Sign up 10 new awesome volunteers to help organize Resilience Festival 2015.
- Raise $500 in donations or memberships towards essential (but not so sexy) costs like insurance and organizing costs of the Resilience Festival.
- Inspire others: a goal of a total of 50 retweets, #UNselfies or gifts to other nonprofits and charities.
Stay tuned for how you can contribute!
