#GivingTuesday donations to YukonU will support hungry students
WHITEHORSE, YT — Today is #GivingTuesday and Yukon University is inviting Yukoners to interact with the university’s social media posts about today, share their personal story of gratitude or donate directly to support YukonU students in need.
YukonU President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Lesley Brown has committed to donate $1.00 for every social media interaction, gratitude story or direct donation received today up to a total of $500.
All #GivingTuesday donations will go towards emergency grocery cards for students and replenishing the Ayamdigut campus student food bank.
#GivingTuesday was created in 2012 by CanadaHelps.org as a day that encourages people to do good. The idea caught on, and has grown around the world, inspiring hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. Today, it manifests as a day of giving.
