Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday… now @GivingTuesdayCA is back at Laurentian University on November 28, 2017.
Giving Tuesday is a Global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” is a day where charities, companies and individuals join together to share commitments, rally for favourite causes and think about others.
There are many ways to make an #LULimpact this Giving Tuesday at Laurentian University, and this year we’ve identified four ways for you to reach out, engage, and make your #LULimpact!
