Put Alzheimer's into the spotlight on #GivingTuesdayCA
Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday…and now you can put altruism in the spotlight in Canada on Giving Tuesday, a Canadian movement for giving and volunteering the day after Cyber Monday, on December 1, 2015.
You can do something about dementia on Giving Tuesday. Here are the three most helpful things that you can do for #GivingTuesdayCA:
- Sign up to be a Volunteer Companion
- Host a Coffee Break fundraising event -- big or small!
- Make a donation!
You know the devastating effect that Alzheimer's disease and other dementias can have on the person receiving a diagnosis, and their whole families. That's why we challenge you to put Alzheimer's into the spotlight on #GivingTuesdayCA!

||This #GivingTuesdayCA I am donating $5 to the Alzheimer Society of Oxford to help those in our community who are living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias! And you can, too: https://www.canadahelps.org/dn/3375
||I am committing to volunteer at the Alzheimer Society of Oxford to celebrate #GivingTuesdayCA. Over 700,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer's disease, and that number could grow to 1.4 million by 2031.
|I support the Alzheimer Society of Oxford on #GivingTuesday! And you can, too! Donate, volunteer, or raise funds for the Alzheimer Society on December 1.
Together, we can lead the change for people with dementia.
