Canadians are pretty generous- that's a fact. How do we know? We've got the numbers to prove it!
Last year there were 52,153 Canadians who gave through our Gift Catalogue. They gave a total of 144,205 gifts. That's a lot of good being done in communities around the world!
We decided we wanted to know more about how Canadians give. We conducted a poll, and discovered this:
Health is a wonderful gift, and you can give it to people in the communities we work with through Gift Catalogue
Another great gift that Canadians love to give? Goats!
Those 2000 goats equal about 3.6 million litres of milk last year, to keep growing kids healthy! After the poll, we took things a step further. We had a Twitter chat to check in with Canadians on how their Holiday giving was going.

Question: How important is it that your family gives back this year?
Canada, thank you for working collectively to lift people out of poverty and toward their full potential. Your love and care is making communities, families and children healthier and stronger.
