Join the #GivingTuesdayCA Movement with an #Unselfie

Posted on

GivingTuesday is fast approaching, falling this year on December 1st! Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it marks the opening day of the giving season. It is a day for charities, companies, and individuals to join together to rally for causes important to them, and think about others. If you’re participating by donating, don’t forget about the matching donation offers from PayPal and Interac. But there are tons of other ways to participate too, like sending a charity gift card, volunteering, or taking an #unselfie!

Over the past few years, we have seen thousands of people join the #GivingTuesdayCA movement with an #Unselfie.

What is an #Unselfie?

An #Unselfie is a photograph of yourself which showcases a charitable act or good deed you’ve performed or are committing to, in an effort to inspire others to do the same.

CanadaHelps Takes on the #Unselfie

As a co-founder of GivingTuesday Canada, we are committed to spreading the word about the movement in as many ways as possible. Last year, we decided it would be fun to have our own #Unselfie campaign! Several CanadaHelps staff participated, including our CEO, Marina Glogovac. We had so much fun, that we decided to take #Unselfie’s again around our office this year.

Join the #Unselfie Movement

Taking an #Unselfie is a great and easy way to get involved in GivingTuesday, and to make a specific commitment to giving back. It’s as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Use our ready-to-go template to make your own #Unselfie.
  2. Take a picture of yourself with the #unselfie template. Your photo can explain what you plan to do, or be a picture of yourself in the midst of your unselfish act!
  3. Share on social media to encourage and motivate others to join the movement (Be sure to tag us @CanadaHelps and use the hashtag #GivingTuesdayCA so we can help share).
