Tuesday, November 28th is #GivingTuesday. Will you celebrate with us?
#GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement. It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good: make someone smile, help a neighbour or stranger, show up for an issue you care about, or give some of what you have to those in need.
Since its beginning, GivingTuesday has grown into a global movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.
GivingTuesday is a time when Canadians, charities, and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits; to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need.
Every act of generosity counts. Everybody has something to give.
During this holiday season, we hope that you will consider Radius when planning your end-of-year giving. We’re working to raise $15,000! Whether a one-time donation, a recurring donation, volunteering or attending an event – every dollar raised will be used to:
- Help provide mental health services to children, youth and families affected by interpersonal abuse, neglect and violence.
- Support the Radius Unconditional Furry Friend (RUFF) Program. Lexus is our therapy dog and she provides much needed emotional support to some of our young Radius clients.
- Give a hand-up to in-need Radius clients this Holiday Season. Your donation will provide gift cards over the Holidays.

Frequently Asked Questions about the GivingTuesday Movement:
Is GivingTuesday just one day?
Generosity is a lifelong commitment to think of others and our communities as well as ourselves. While our global celebration event will take place on November 28, 2023, the most successful GivingTuesday campaigns are planned and launched weeks before the actual day, and many last until the end of December.
We encourage giving back throughout the year, whether through donations, volunteering or in whatever other ways we can. #GivingEveryTuesday was born when people started asking, what if every Tuesday was GivingTuesday? #GivingEveryTuesday a series of weekly opportunities to come together to give, volunteer, and show kindness in shared moments with communities, causes and countries around the world. It’s another way the world comes together to inspire people to do good all year round.
Who can participate in GivingTuesday?
Everyone! We welcome a broad range of partners, including charities and non-profits, small businesses and corporations, schools, community groups, individuals, and families. These partners have one important thing in common: they are committed to generosity and creating positive change. Each participating organization is responsible for organizing their own GivingTuesday campaign or activities.
GivingTuesday is about encouraging people to be generous, and there are so many ways to do that. It’s simple: a day that encourages people to do good, on GivingTuesday and every day! Give time, make someone smile, help a neighbour, or make a donation. Everyone has something to give and every act of generosity counts.
What is a GivingTuesday community movement?
GivingTuesday Communities come together around a common geography (e.g., city, town or province) or a common cause (e.g., promoting science centres or adult literacy) to collaborate, innovate and inspire their communities to make a difference. These Community campaigns find creative ways to mobilize their networks, host volunteer events, raise funds for their local organizations, spark kindness, and much more. In Canada, the movement is called GivingTuesdayCA!
