Many people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday … now Giving Tuesday has come to Canada. The 3rd annual Giving Tuesday Canada is December 1, 2015. It is a new Canadian day of giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” Giving Tuesday is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to rally for their favourite causes. “We have two days that are good for the economy. Now we have a day that is good for the community too.”
