Giving Tuesday is Nov. 30

November 17th, 2021

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that encourages individuals to support their favourite cause and make an impact in their community. The date of Giving Tuesday this year is Nov. 30, but the benefits of giving last all year.

“I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” (Maya Angelou)

Dawson has participated in this activity in the past with great success. This year, we are launching a program for giving that not only helps various members of our community and supports community-building projects, but one that also touches our hearts.

On Tuesday, Nov. 23, we will begin a one-week countdown to Giving Tuesday on our social media channels:

Dawson is a giving community by nature, rising above even the challenges posed by the pandemic. Our generosity knows no bounds!
