This Tuesday, Nov. 30, is GivingTuesday! GivingTuesday is a global movement of giving back, taking place each year on the Tuesday after Black Friday.
Chances are, you'll hear from a lot of your favourite non-profits and charities on GivingTuesday – including us here at L'Arche Saint John!
We rely on the generosity of our donors to raise 50% of our annual budget. Your gift has a tremendous impact on the lives of adults with intellectual disabilities and their families.
Below, we've outlined 4 simple ways you can support L'Arche Saint John and Creative Connections on GivingTuesday.
1. Make a tax-deductible donation
A donation to L'Arche Saint John goes directly to supporting folks in our community. Your gift helps us build a more inclusive Saint John.
When you give $75 or more on GivingTuesday, we'll gift you a pack of our holiday cards!
2. Enter our holiday raffle
We have an exciting bundle of goodies that we are raffling to one lucky winner on Dec. 10. The package includes creative stocking stuffers from Creative Connections, a handcrafted pottery bowl, and an elegant wristwatch. Tickets are $10 each.
3. Purchase holiday cards
Our artists with intellectual disabilities at Creative Connections have designed beautiful holiday cards for you to send to your loved ones. Colouring books and beeswax wraps – both made in collaboration with local partners – also make great stocking stuffers!
4. Sharing is caring!
Last but not least, a big way you can support L'Arche Saint John on GivingTuesday is by sharing our mission with your friends and network!
At L’Arche Saint John, we believe in a world where everyone belongs. When persons with intellectual disabilities take their place at the table, they contribute to a more just, compassionate, and vibrant world for all.
With your support, we're building a more inclusive and vibrant Saint John!
