GIVING TUESDAY & BEYOND
With the holidays approaching, we are looking for ways to celebrate the magic of the season in a year of continued caution and uncertainty. But one thing is certain: if there ever was a time to come together and support one another, this is it. Giving Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to re-introduce our Giving Back Program.
This Giving Tuesday and throughout December, PAPER LABEL will donate 2% of each order we receive to a non-profit organization, at no additional cost to our customer. We have chosen three non-profit organizations that cover concerns close to our community, and close to our hearts. Every customer can select which non-profit organization their purchase will go towards.
With your support, we will give back to these organizations that are making major impacts:
A national charitable organization dedicated to helping Canadians living with food insecurity. Food Banks Canada supports a network of Provincial Associations, affiliate food banks, and food agencies that work at the community level to relieve hunger. Their work is focused on maximizing collective impact, strengthening local capacity, and reducing the need for food banks. Watch this behind-the-scenes video so you can see what it takes for your donations to come to life.
In response to the impact floods are having on BC communities, United Way has launched the United for BC Flood Response Fund to raise dollars that will address important social needs like shelter, food assistance, trauma and mental health supports, and the rebuilding social infrastructure. By donating to the United for BC Flood Response Fund, you will support critical relief and urgent recovery efforts in the aftermath of devastating floods that have impacted communities across the province. Your donation will assist those who are displaced or have lost housing, belongings or employment, and who have suffered physical or mental health trauma.
The Cancer Research Society's Read for the Cure is a pan-Canadian literary event, presented by Penguin Random House Canada, that has raised over $1.6 million for cancer research since its inception. Read for the Cure provides an annual literary event where readers of all types come together with bestselling authors for an incredible and inspiring event that supports cancer research in Canada. PAPER LABEL is a longtime supporter of Read for The Cure.
