In the spirit of Christmas, Meadowridge School gives back on Meadowridge Giving Day! In celebration of the school’s 25th anniversary, Meadowridge hosted a full 35 hours of giving as they joined the global Giving Tuesday movement, hosting the first-ever Meadowridge Giving Day in support of their students and their school.
Giving Tuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season” is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes.
GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners – nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals – to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
Cheers to a successful year of giving back Meadowridge! Thank you to all the staff, students, and parents who took part in this event, this wouldn’t have been a success without your help!
