Countdown to Giving Tuesday is on!
What’s Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday is a day for you to give to the causes and charities that mean the most to you using savings from Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
This year, Giving Tuesday is on November 27th and we hope you’ll join us on our mission to #GiveMoreThanFruit by helping us raise $3,000 to support our partner agency workshop series.
#GiveMoreThanFruit on #GivingTuesday
Year after year, fruit picked right from branches in your own neighbourhood feeds over 8,000 people at 35 social service agencies across Toronto. Many of these agencies otherwise wouldn’t have access to fresh fruit.
On #GivingTuesday, you can take that fruit one step further.
Will you help us raise $3,000 to support our partner agency workshop series?
Your support will allow us to extend our picking and preserving workshop series with our partner agencies into 2019. This year we put 850 pounds of fruit to use in 6 canning and preserving workshops with our friends at Regent Park Community Food Centre. Together their clients made 268 preserves and jams, and baked 44 pies.
But we don’t want to stop there! We want to see more smiling faces, more preserves, and more people coming together around fruit next year.
By supporting this workshop series on #GivingTuesday, you’ll bring community members together to participate in the full circle of food production, from fruit picking to processing to preserving. You’ll #GiveMoreThanFruit by providing an opportunity for joyful camaraderie and skill building around preserving and fruit picking for people who otherwise wouldn’t have access to this programming.
Double your impact on #GivingTuesday! Every dollar you give on November 27, up to $1,500, will be matched by our Steering Committee. So even small gifts have a big impact!YES, I'LL GIVE!
Gifts of $100 and over will receive a free “Giving Trees” tote bag to show our gratitude for your generosity.
