Alouette River Management Society taking part in GivingTuesday fundraiser

The Alouette River Management Society is taking part in a global day.

ARMS is participating in GivingTuesday, a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, charities, businesses and communities across Canada around the world.

GivingTuesday is promoted as the world’s largest generosity movement, and is considered by many as the opening day of the giving season, said ARMS spokesperson Sophie Sparrow.

On Nov. 29, GivingTuesday Canada will celebrate its 10th anniversary, and the impacts go well beyond charitable donations, she explained. People are asked to embrace the day as an opportunity to raise money for local charities and non-profits, run food and clothing drives, give blood, encourage kindness, help a neighbour, and celebrate generosity.

“This is a time to stand together in unity – to use individual power of generosity to remain connected and do good,” said Sparrow.

The group has a goal of $5,000, and had already raised $3,600 on Nov. 23.
