Today, November 29, is Giving Tuesday—a global day of generosity intended as an altruistic antidote to the shopping circus of Black Friday.

Millions of Canadians will spend a portion of today volunteering their time, or donating to an organization they believe in.

If you’re one of them, then bravo! Donors like you really do make our world go round. To underscore the point, we’ve made the short video, above, to express our gratitude to all of our past, present, and future supporters.

We’re proud to be making a real difference—in rural resource communities like Prince Rupert, in the streets of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, in the economically depressed regions of Nova Scotia, and elsewhere.

If you are participating in Giving Tuesday, we do hope you choose to send a little love our way. If you do, please be sure to tag our twitter account @ecotrustcanada and #GivingTuesdayCA — or let us know by tagging our Facebook page!
