GivingTuesday (December 1, 2020) is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the generosity of people around the world to bring about real change in their communities; it provides a platform for them to encourage the donation of time, resources and talents to address local challenges. It also brings together the collective power of a unique blend of partners - nonprofits, civic organizations, businesses and corporations, as well as families and individuals - to encourage and amplify small acts of kindness. Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
“We have two days that are good for the economy. Now we have a day that is good for the community too.”
Giving back to our local communities is extremely important to us and always a huge mission of ours. At Pink Crown Creative, we are celebrating #givingtuesday by highlighting some of the wonderful local charities, programs and businesses we have donated to, volunteered with and supported this year.

Mentorship is an excellent opportunity to kick-start your career, gain insight into the skillsets you need to grow, get guidance while making a career shift, or get some accountability to help you finally achieve your goals.
YWiB’s Mentorship Program is mentee-driven allowing you to cater your interactions and growth towards achieving your career goals.
Tailored to the mentees’ objectives and interests, our mentorship coordinators strategically select mentors based on the mentees’ needs and goals to help with both professional and personal development. Based on mentee applications, we seek out women in the Vancouver business community who align with your career aspirations and will help to inspire and guide you in achieving your goals.
It is not a networking program – this is not a way to gain contacts in your industry but a carefully curated experience to help catapult your professional growth.
To make philanthropy a rewarding experience for businesses and charities everywhere.

It’s a time when Canadians, charities and businesses come together to celebrate giving and participate in activities that support charities and non-profits.
There is no “right” way to participate as long as it supports generosity and giving.
We encourage you too to donate, volunteer time, help a neighbour, or spread the word. ⭐️ #givingtuesdayca
