There is Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and now Giving Tuesday!
Giving Tuesday is a day that businesses partner with charities in order to give back. This year, Giving Gifts has teamed up with Vancouver Street Soccer in order to provide holiday gifts for the kids of street soccer players. For every customer that spends $100 or more on Tuesday, November 28th we will be donating a gift to a child! You'll be the sponsor of that gift and we'll give you a gift tag to sign.
For the gifts, we reach out the families to ask what present their children would love to receive in order to ensure that the gifts are perfect. They range from lego to doll sets to art kits, etc... everything that our own kids would love to receive! Together with our customers, we commit every year to donating all the presents for the group so that the kids have gifts to open at the Street Soccer Holiday Party.
"The Vancouver Street Soccer League is a volunteer-run organization which reaches out to individuals who have been homeless, are currently homeless, or are at risk of homelessness, as well as individuals who feel marginalized within their communities, or are recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. We address the issue of homelessness, marginalization, and addiction through inclusivity and soccer – believing we can enhance all of our lives through the principles of Fair Play, Community Building, Supportive Partnerships, and Health and Safety."
