2015 GivingTuesday

11/25/15

This December 1st, the Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO) is joining the movement of GivingTuesday, the global day of giving. As we enter into the holiday season and on the heels of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, GivingTuesday is a time for everyone to take time out and give something back.

On this day, people are encouraged to donate to charity, volunteer, or just do something selfless.

If you’re planning on donating this GivingTuesday, The Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa is a very worthwhile cause in our city, helping over 1,000 children and youth in each year. CAFO uses donations to provide opportunities to children and youth in the care of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa.

These opportunities include:

  •          Dare to Dream bursary, which allows youth to attend post-secondary education
  •          Camp for Kids, which sends hundreds of area children to camp each summer
  •          Cookie Jar Fund, which helps 250 children and youth to participate in sports, music, and recreational activities while also providing basic necessities to families

These programs and others run by CAFO help children and youth get through what can be a very difficult time in their lives, providing them with opportunities that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

So this Tuesday, please consider giving something back. Every little bit helps!
