  • It’s that time of year again

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, now it is time for Giving Tuesday.

Timed with the start of the holiday shopping season, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving has, since 2012, become a day to kick off the giving season. It's a largely on-line campaign that uses the power of social media to encourage people to contribute as much as they can in one day to the charities of their choice.

"Go out and share", said Colin Basran after reading a proclamation outside Kelowna City Hall designating Tuesday as Giving Tuesday.

Whether you're a rookie or an experienced philanthropist, CariClub can help you find your passion and make a difference.

Doofl is an easy way for you to raise money for your favorite charity. You could double your donations on Facebook. This year, we've set our goal at $110,000 by Christmas for five local nonprofits: Access Carroll, Carroll Hospice, Human Services Programs' Neighbors in Need Year Round, Carroll Food Sunday and The Shepherd's Staff. They make hashtag donations on social media possible. And ask what percentage of your donation goes to the charity's goal. GiveWell doesn't charge any administrative fees, but donations made by credit card are subject to a 2.15 percent processing fee, plus an additional $0.28 per transaction. There is no risk and it will never cost you more than buying from the official retailer. In addition, locals participating in the #MyGivingStory contest through sharing a story about how an organization impacts the community positively can help that chosen non-profit can win a grand prize of $10,000.
