Giving Tuesday 2023 (#GivingTuesdayCA)
November 28, 2023 is GivingTuesday, which is also known as the annual day of global generosity! GivingTuesday is described by CanadaHelps as being about creating positive change in our communities and across the world through giving back. Every gesture of goodwill is valid and important. Even a simple act of kindness can have a massive impact by lifting someone's spirits, providing comfort, and effecting change beyond what we can see. 

For CanUgan, it also kicks off our fourth Holiday Giving Campaign, which will run through to the end of December, with our goal being to raise $7,000.
CanUgan's Holiday Giving Campaign 2023

International Day of Persons with Disabilities - December 3, 2023
International Day for Persons with Disabilities is Sunday, December 3, 2023. 

International Day of Persons with Disabilities was proclaimed in 1992 with the aim to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life. 

The current world population is over 8 billion people with more than one billion people (approximately 15%) living with some form of disability; 80% of which live in developing countries.

Look out for our TwitterInstagram, and Facebook accounts, as we observe International Day of Persons with Disabilities on Sunday, December 3, 2023.
Recipient Profile - Nguomoja Kambale
Nguomoja Kambale (pictured above at KADUPEDI) aspires to start their own goat meat business because now Nguomoja is able to walk to and from the market to buy goats, thanks to the crutches they received.

Each donation during our Holiday Giving Campaign will help to provide recipients like Nguomoja the mobility to start a business, earn a living for themselves or attend school.
