Giving Tuesday Okanagan encourages generosity

A time to give back

Giving Tuesday celebrations today will kick off the "giving season."

Known as the global day of generosity, Giving Tuesday continues to grow in its sixth year, with millions of Canadians participating.

Giving Tuesday not only inspires the public to donate to charity, but also to give back in all forms.

To embrace the day, people are encouraged to raise money for local charities, start food or clothing drives, donate blood, or help out a neighbour.

In 2015, the Giving Tuesday Okanagan movement began in Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon, with mayoral proclamations.

In Kelowna, a civic proclamation will occur on the steps of City Hall with Deputy Mayor Loyal Wooldrige, at noon.

It will be followed by similar events in Penticton and Vernon.
