FCJ Refugee Centre shares the voice of uprooted people on Giving Tuesday 2017
Global Day of Giving Takes Place this Year on November 28th
As part of the 26th anniversary, FCJ Refugee Center has started the first phase of its online campaign to join the Global Day of Giving. GivingTuesday is a movement that has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across Canada and in countries around the world. Just as Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season.
FCJ Refugee Center joined the campaign to reflect generosity by the work it does in making the society a better place for vulnerable populations.
On occasion of the FCJ Refugee Centre’s anniversary, each day leading up to Giving Tuesday on November 28, 2017, the Centre is highlighting the 26 values that underlie the work they do. These values, including advocacy & resiliency, diversity & intersectionality, LGBTQ+ and youth engagement, guide followed by the FCJ Refugee Centre’s efforts to provide holistic services and programs that strive to meet the vast needs of Toronto’s precarious population.
On this giving season, FCJ Refugee Centre calls on everyone to consider making a gift to show your support of these values and FCJ’s work. Those who are interested in joining FCJ Refugee Center’s GivingTuesday initiative can visit our website and follow us on Facebook, and Twitter.
