What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back, that takes place after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On Tuesday, December 1, 2020, people around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate and encourage generosity. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community – charities, companies and individuals – join together for Giving Tuesday.

World Vision Canada has partnered with Burnbrae Farms to give Canadians the chance to double their impact on Giving Tuesday.

For every gift of Hens and Roosters donated from the Gift Catalogue, Burnbrae Farms will generously match your gift, up to $15,000.

Children and families who receive Hens and Roosters are sure to be delighted at the first crack of an egg. But what’s even better is the ongoing source of income they provide to families who sell their eggs at market, as well as the protein, vitamin and nutrient-rich food they provide for growing girls and boys.

Frequently asked questions

Burnbrae Farms is matching donations up to $15,000 to Hens and Roosters on Giving Tuesday.

This is the ninth year World Vision Canada is partnering with Burnbrae Farms, a sixth-generation Canadian family business that has been producing eggs for 75 years. Margaret Hudson, President of Burnbrae Farms says, "At Burnbrae Farms we go to work every day believing in the value that eggs have for families as a source of nutrition. When you give a gift like Hens and Roosters through the World Vision Gift Catalogue, you're also giving an economic opportunity for farmers in developing countries who can sell these eggs at markets to help support their families. We're excited to see Canadians respond this Giving Tuesday to our offer to match their donations."

When you give livestock gifts like Hens and Roosters, it’s part of a greater community development program. Animals are purchased locally and distributed to families in need, along with feed, training and other support. In addition, World Vision provides families with business guidance and skills that helps build strong communities, giving families a sustainable path to a new life.
