Lifesaving Society Celebrates GivingTuesday

Join the GivingTuesday Movement on December 3rd

Help Save a Life!

GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. It is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.

Lifesaving Society Manitoba is asking for your help in saving lives. A gift of $25 will provide life-long lifesaving skills to a child through our Swim To Survive program. On GivingTuesday, December 3rd, please donate. A charitable tax receipt will be issued for financial donations. 

But, we also think of December 3rd as “Getting Tuesday” where you can purchase select water safety items from Lifesaving Society Manitoba as a gift for someone you care about. All proceeds raised through the sale of these items will go toward the Swim To Survive program. Click here to start shopping.
