Champions Day & Giving Tuesday
Everyone knows about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It’s time to add Giving Tuesday to your calendar! Giving Tuesday is a movement about giving, volunteering, and championing community causes and it just happens to fall on YESS' annual day of awareness, Champions Day! Charities, companies, and individuals will all join together on Giving Tuesday to raise awareness for all sorts of causes across the country, including YESS.
Join us on Giving Tuesday by being a YESS Champion. Show your support for youth that are in crisis and experiencing homelessness by launching your own fundraising page and help spread the word and educate others about how YESS helps kids. Share your page with friends, family, and followers across social media. Use #GivingTuesday to share your enthusiasm for YESS across Canada!
Winter is an especially difficult time for youth struggling with homelessness. To borrow a poignant phrase from C.S. Lewis, a life of homelessness is “always winter, but never Christmas”—always cold and harsh, with no warmth or relief. Your fundraising will make sure the youth at YESS get everything they’re wishing for this Christmas, though their list might be a little different than yours. They’re wishing for healthy meals, a warm place to sleep, a sanctuary out of the cold, and hope for the future. Share your campaign with #GiveChristmas.
