Giving Tuesday Now:

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. This global day of unity takes place on May 5, 2020 as a response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Please join us for our Facebook live event at 12 noon. You will be able to select a number envelope between 1 and 100. Each numbered envelope will correspond to the donation amount you pledge to give. For example: envelope #1 = $1, envelop #46 = $46, envelop #93 = $93, etc. You will be able to claim your number by typing it in the comments section of the post. Donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt. Feel free to get together with friends to make your donation (i.e.: $100/4 friends = $25/friend). E-transfers can be sent to

If you do not have Facebook, but would like to make a donation, please email us your chosen number to the address above and we will fill it in for you.

We consider our Mentors to be on the front lines protecting our most vulnerable – our Littles. For many of our Littles, these Mentors are their lifeline, especially in times of crisis. Even though our Bigs and Littles are unable to get together right now as they practice physical distancing, they are meeting regularly on virtual platforms.

We know that children who are matched with a Mentor are:

  • 2x more likely to stay in school and graduate,
  • 2x more likely to get higher-paying jobs,
  • 13% more likely to donate to charity and 20% more is donated,
  • 50% more likely to volunteer.

Please consider giving towards to the work that Big Brothers Big Sisters does in your community.

Help us ignite the power and potential in the young people of Kincardine & District.

We are #BiggerTogether #GivingTuesdayNow #KincardineStrong #StrongerTogether
