Giving Tuesday

Thanks for sharing with us what the joy of giving means to you this Giving Tuesday. 

Research consistently shows that giving is a joyful experience. To celebrate Giving Tuesday, we set out to find out what the joy of giving means to the people of Canada. We launched a social media contest calling on people to share posts on Twitter and Instagram that highlight the joy of giving, and what it means to them.

Giving is at the heart of what we do at Charitable Impact and we really enjoyed gaining an insight into what giving means to others. We were overwhelmed by the response and were so thrilled to see so many amazing posts. 

Thanks to everyone that entered, and congratulations to the following winners!

1st Place

The first prize goes to @Artintarsia with their entry on Twitter. @Artintarsia has won $2,500 charitable dollars to send to the causes that matter most to them. 

2nd Place

The second prize goes to @Sir_Polaris with their entry on Twitter. @Sir_Polaris wins $1,500 charitable dollars to send to the causes that matter most to him.

3rd Place

Third place goes to Robin Hadoc who entered on Instagram. Robin wins $500 charitable dollars.
