There was a great turnout downtown for GivingTuesday and Mayor Colin Basran's proclamation down at city hall. KCR had a small crowd of board members, managers and our ED to support the event. Thanks to everyone who came out!
Participating in GivingTuesday can take many forms and this one is adorable. Cuddle and Kind is doubling the number of meals they donate to needy children for every doll sold today. In honour of GivingTuesday, 1 DOLL = 20 MEALS!

A big thanks to Pihl Law Corporation for inviting me to enjoy a nice breakfast with their staff this morning! It was exciting to hear how some of the staff will be giving back this GivingTuesday. On behalf of Team Volinspire, a big congrats goes out to the employees at Pihl Law who are helping to make our community a better place!
It's GivingTuesday! Today, United Way Central & South Okanagan/Similkameen is giving 150 thanks to our workplace campaigns and volunteer Board members. We embark on our tours before and after the civic proclamations in Penticton at 10 a.m. and Kelowna at 1 pm. Join us for the celebrations at CIty Hall or perhaps we'll see you on the thank you tour! #givingtuesdayca
GivingTuesday is happening! If you haven't found your place to give back, join us in building a school for the future leaders of Tanzania Hope for the Nations/Living Waters Secondary School Project! We are more than halfway to our goal and building the school is already in progress. Volunteer opportunities available - be part of the movement for change in Africa
Imagine the frustration, isolation and desperation you might feel if you had a disabled limb, had undergone major surgery, or were living with a debilitating illness and had not one person to turn to for support. Your income is $1,000 per month for rent, food and medical necessities. How will you manage to care for yourself and your home? Working with a Social Justice 12 class from a local high school and adult team leaders, on GivingTuesday, Hands in Service will mobilize about 50 individuals to assist clients with basic housekeeping, laundry and simple food preparation. It takes very little to impact the quality of life and hope of a client. Services provide social interaction, pain free in home assistance and give individuals greater independence, connection and hope. #GivingTuesdayCa
