GivingTuesday with MCC

GivingTuesday – the global day of giving

Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday  … now we celebrate GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017.

It is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.

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.



“We have two days that are good for the economy. Now we have a day that is good for the community too.”



GivingTuesday and the Manitoba Craft Council

Introducing the C2 Centre for Craft: an exhibition gallery, shop, library, museum and workshop space featuring the best of contemporary and traditional craft this province has to offer. Thanks to generous funders and donors like you, we have built C2 from the ground up and are crafting the future of Manitoba.
But we’re not done yet! Running C2 takes all hands on deck and we need your help now more than ever! Your generous donation will help to ensure the Manitoba Craft Council is able to keep offering quality programming and services to our neighbourhood and the province through C2.
If you love craft and the people who make it, give to the Manitoba Craft Council on Giving Tuesday.
