Most of us have heard about Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but do you know about Giving Tuesday?
Giving Tuesday is a new global movement for giving and volunteering that happens each year on the Tuesday following Black Friday. It’s a day when charities, companies and individuals come together to support, and rally for, their favourite causes.
By clicking the link above, you will be supporting our Light the Way campaign, and specifically our Bereavement and Client Assistance Fund Programs.
The Bereavement Program provides supportive grief counseling to bereaved individuals, as well as education and consultation to community agencies, groups and the general public. Facilitated support groups based on type of death or relationship to the deceased offer peer support and education which promote understanding of the grieving process, as well as learning and implementation of healthy coping strategies. This program receives minimal government funding.
The Client Assistance Fund was established to assist some of CMHAs most vulnerable clients. They can access this fund to alleviate short-term hardships they are experiencing. This may be used for bus tickets, cab fare and/or food vouchers. This fund is 100% funded by community donations.
