Giving Tuesday and NOLB

You’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday was created as a national day of giving to kick start the holiday season. This Giving Tuesday (December 1st), Scouts Canada is encouraging individuals to donate to the No One Left Behind program. As such, all social media efforts leading up to and on Giving Tuesday have been designed to promote the great experience of Scouting and the benefits of the No One Left Behind program.

To reach the widest audience possible and to ensure our success this Giving Tuesday, we need your assistance!

How can you help? Scouts Canada will be posting a series of messages about the NOLB program leading up to, and on, Giving Tuesday. We will also be retweeting and sharing members’ posts related to Giving Tuesday and NOLB. We ask that you retweet and share Scouts Canada’s messages and develop social media messages of your own to share with your networks, which Scouts Canada can then retweet and share! The official hashtags should be included in all Giving Tuesday and NOLB messaging and content disseminated. They are: #GivingTuesdaySC and #NOLB.
