In 2012 the global movement of GivingTuesday was created with a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over time this idea has grown into a movement that inspires millions of people to give back and volunteer.
GivingTuesday takes place each year after Black Friday and is considered the “opening day of the giving season”. Following two days which are good for the economy, Giving Tuesday is a day that’s good for the community!
GlobalMedic has always been comprised of a movement of individuals coming together to create a massive impact. Here are a couple of ways you can get involved with GlobalMedic on this year’s GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019.
The easiest way to get involved this GivingTuesday is to make a donation to support GlobalMedic. This year, GlobalGiving is giving away $500,000 in matching funds to its nonprofit community members. As a partner, GlobalMedic is eligible to receive these matching funds! The more money we raise, the more matching funds we can receive. Check out our Syria and Yemen campaigns on GlobalGiving.

Visit the CanadaHelps website, tell them how you plan to celebrate GivingTuesday and enter GlobalMedic for the chance to win a $5,000 donation. This contest ends on December 2, 2019 so make sure to submit your entry before then!
Volunteers are integral to GlobalMedic’s operations and we are thankful for the support we receive on a daily basis. Check out our volunteer page to learn more about how to get involved and to sign up!
