#GivingTuesdayYYC @ CFN

Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It`s a time of year that is tantamount to an all out consumer blitz to spend money. Now we have GivingTuesday.

GivingTuesday is a new Canadian movement for giving and volunteering taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The 'opening day of the giving season', GivingTuesday brings together charities, companies and individuals to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others. The Kickoff event will be held tomorrow , Tuesday  November 29th at the Cenovus building. Dr. Lucy Miller, President and CEO of the United Way of Calgary and Area will join Wayne Steer, President of AFP Calgary & Area.

We encourage you to donate on Giving Tuesday (click here to do so) Nov 29 or throughout the Giving Season, to help support our vision and ultimate goal for Calgary - a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfil dreams and participate fully as citizens. Since 1988 the Centre for Newcomers has been supporting newcomers and the receiving community in becoming a diverse, united city, through services and initiatives that create conditions of success for newcomers and that foster a welcoming environment in Calgary. Further still, the Centre for Newcomers not only provides local leadership, but provincial and national leadership in immigrant settlement and integration as well.

Help support a great cause with a new vision of community building this #GivingTuesdayYYC as all proceeds from this fundraising event go towards Centre for Newcomers programs, impacting over 10, 000 immigrants and refugees every year in Calgary.
