GivingTuesday is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The “opening day of the giving season,” is a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for their favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
When my son started JK at Hopewell Avenue Public School, I was five months pregnant with a one year old in tow, so kindness from Hopewell parents during pick up and drop offs meant the world to me. It encouraged me to engage more deeply with the community by volunteering.
We’re gearing up to participate in Giving Tuesday 2019 and we’re beside ourselves with excitement. Why? Because #GivingTuesdayCA is all about giving back and finding ways to do so even finding a cause close to our own hearts.
Don’t miss the neighbourhood’s hottest summer comedy “For Love or Money,” by Kate Jaimet, presented on Sunday, August 18th at the Ottawa Tennis & Lawn Bowling Club.
On a recent bright Sunday, the dining room of a grand Old Ottawa South home had been transformed into a mini marketplace with purses atop china cabinets, tables lined with baskets of bangles and scarves and more wares hanging off door frames and wine racks. In the hallway, colourful scarves ran up the banister.
The reason for the makeover? The New to You Jewellery, Purse and Scarf Sale, one of the latest fundraising efforts of the Ottawa South Refugee Committee.

Cameron Avenue east of Bank Street came alive with the sound of bagpipes this past Friday evening. A wine pairing fundraising event was hosted by Linda Hancock (OSCA Past President) and her husband, Mazen Soubra. About 60 guests were piped in by members of the Ottawa Caledonian Pipes & Drums group. The bagpipes were a fitting tribute to Robertson House, Linda & Mazen’s home, which is 130 years old this year. Robertson House is one of the heritage designated buildings in Old Ottawa South.
