STEAM Education Centre’s Send a Child to STEAM Camp campaign launch for Giving Tuesday, Global Day of Giving on November 30th
St Thomas, ON November 19 2021- STEAM Education Centre is planning to launch the Send a Child to STEAM Camp fundraising campaign for GivingTuesday, a global giving movement driven by individuals, charities, businesses, and communities across Canada and in countries around the world.
For this GivingTuesday the STEAM Education Centre, which is a registered charity, is hoping to help prepare students for the jobs of the future, some that haven’t been invented yet, by teaching important STEAM (science, technology, engineering,art and math) skills through their March Break and Summer Camp programming. Not everyone has access to participate so sponsoring a child to attend camp will go a long way to building their development. Our campaign will launch for GivingTuesday, encouraging those in the community to donate $25 (or more) to sponsor a day of camp for a child aged 7-12 years old. Those who wish to make a donation can do so at https://www.steameducation.ca/donate.html#/
GivingTuesday is the world’s largest generosity movement and is considered by many as the opening day of the giving season. GivingTuesday continues to gain traction across the country in its ninth year, with thousands of partner organizations and millions of Canadians expected to take part. Since 2013, GivingTuesday has united millions of Canadians to support and champion the causes they believe in and the communities in which they live.
The impact of GivingTuesday goes well beyond charitable donations, inspiring giving in all its forms. From coast to coast to coast, people are embracing this day as an opportunity to raise money for local charities and nonprofits, run food and clothing drives, give blood, encourage kindness, help a neighbour and celebrate generosity. At a time when we are all experiencing the continued effects of the pandemic, GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to stand together in unity- to use their individual power of generosity to to remain connected and heal.
So far more than 7,500 Canadian charities, businesses, and community groups have used GivingTuesday to rally generosity and help make the world a better place in countless ways. Around the globe there are official GivingTuesday movements in over 70 countries, including Australia, Brazil, Kenya, Slovenia, Tanzania, the UK and more.
