Support the Adoption Council of Canada on GivingTuesday

OTTAWA, ON--(Marketwired - November 26, 2015) - The Adoption Council of Canada is participating in GivingTuesday this December 1st, 2015. is a global movement to give back, following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It honours community organizations and charities that help those in need. No gift is too small -- donating your time to your favourite organization, helping a neighbour, raising awareness or a monetary donation to a charity or your choice. You can make a difference, on GivingTuesday and all year around!

This year, the Adoption Council of Canada joins GivingTuesday CA to seek support for our goal: preventing 30,000 children and youth in government care from aging out of foster care and group homes without permanent families. You can help us find lifelong connections for these children and youth to at least one safe, loving and supportive adult.

We are Canada's only national organization focused on adoption, legal guardianship, kinship care and customary care, and post-adoption support. Our programs include a website known as Canada's Waiting Children, the Heart Gallery of Canada, a Youth Speak Out Program, Best Practices training for child welfare workers, and post-adoption support for children and families.

This Giving Tuesday, you can help us in five easy ways:

  1. Donate some of your Aeroplan miles to us
  2. Donate $10 or an amount of your choice on our GivingTuesday site
  3. Post a family photo with the hashtag #FamilyLooksLike on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, and tell us what family means to you
  4. Donate your old car to us through Donate A Car Canada
  5. Like our Facebook page (, follow us on Twitter (@AdoptionCanada), check out our website (, or post your own message to raise awareness about the 30,000 children and youth across Canada waiting for a permanent family today.
