The generous Canadian spirit has made #GivingTuesdayCA an anchor of the global #GivingTuesday movement. We’ve been proud supporters of #GivingTuesdayCA since the start, through opportunities for PayPal users to give through CanadaHelps, and through employee moments like this one last year at the Working Skills Centre in Toronto.
This year, we’re teaming up with #GivingTuesdayCA to help prove just how big it’s become, by attempting to set a new Guinness World Records™ title for the most money donated online for charity in 24-hours.
Donate on December 1st – from 12:00AM to 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time – with PayPal to any charity, anywhere in the world. When you do, we’ll count your donation towards the record-setting attempt. Our aim is raise more than $20 million to break the current Guinness World Records™ title for the most money donated online for charity in 24-hours.
Even better, we’ll add an extra 1% to your donation if you donate with PayPal to your favourite charity listed on CanadaHelps via this link today and for all of December. We’ll be offering similar benefits for PayPal users and charities in eight other countries around the world. It’s another way to help your donation go even further. Learn more here.
For over 16 years, PayPal has been helping charities and nonprofits raise money for causes that people most care about. We’re proud of our partnership with CanadaHelps, and hope you’ll join us in becoming part of a record-breaking day when you donate today.
