We were inspired by how Canadians contributed generously last year on #GivingTuesdayCA. PayPal users in Canada and across the globe helped set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® for the “Most Money Raised Online for Charity in a 24-hour period” raising over US$45.8M. We can’t wait to see what we can do together in 2016!
To celebrate your generosity, I am delighted to share that PayPal will help your donation dollars go further this #GivingTuesdayCA and for all of December. As in past years, we have teamed up with CanadaHelps to match 1% of all donations made through PayPal on CanadaHelps, between November 29th and December 31, 2016 for eligible charities.
How can you choose to give cheer this #GivingTuesdayCA?
- Canadians can join the #GivingTuesdayCA movement and donate to their favourite charity with PayPal on the CanadaHelps website.
- If you’re an eligible charity, PayPal’s 1% donation match on #GivingTuesdayCA and for all of December will help you get access to more funds. You just need to encourage your donors to donate with PayPal on one of your CanadaHelps Custom Donate Now pages or to donate directly to your charity through the CanadaHelps website.
At PayPal, we are proud to be a lead supporter of the #GivingTuesday movement around the world. This is one day where diverse groups of individuals, communities and organizations around the world for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage charitable giving, which ultimately has the power to unite us and bring about positive change.
