#givingTuesdayCA is almost here

The goal of #GivingTuesday is to create a global day of giving back that celebrates generosity and kindness.

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y, in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. The goal of #GivingTuesday is to create a global day of giving back that celebrates generosity and kindness. The day itself falls on the Tuesday following American Thanksgiving each year, meaning #GivingTuesday for 2015 falls on December 1.

In the same way that Black Friday and Cyber Monday kick off the buying season, #GivingTuesday kicks off the giving season. It’s a day to step back from the commercialization and consumerism that comes with the holiday season, and promote doing good for others.

This year, we ask you think about West Niagara Agricultural Society and our efforts to complete the West Niagara Agricultural Centre. We are so close... the community hall will be underway in the new year and already our phone is ringing with requests to rent the facility! That is so exciting... 

Of course, we are still seeking additional funding for this huge capital project. Any little bit will help. You can donate by visiting our donations page, by contacting us because you can offer products or services on our wish list, or by contacting Debi at 905-734-8273 or by grow@westniagarafair.ca if you would like information on becoming one of our Community Partners. 

Watch for our email on Tuesday, December 1st for more information.
