Giving Tuesday


Today Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 Multiple Births Canada is proudly joining for our 2nd year the exciting movement called Giving Tuesday, a national day that celebrates the season of giving.  To view a video explaining Giving Tuesday - click here

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become two of the most well-known days for holiday shopping, Giving Tuesday (the Tuesday following Cyber Monday) aims to change the way Canadians think about the holiday giving season.  Giving Tuesday will mark a national day dedicated to giving back to the communities where we live, work and play. 


  1. Make a gift to support MBC's programs, projects and services that help multiple-birth individuals and their families. Click here to make a donation through Canada Helps or find alternate ways on our website.
  2. Volunteer to help one of our Affiliate Chapters at the local level or MBC at the national level for a few hours, few days or in an on-going position.  MBC relies on the kindness, dedication and passion of hundreds of volunteers across Canada to offer the support needed in the multiple-birth community. Interested in volunteering email:
  3. Create Awareness - please share information about MBC's participation in the Giving Tuesday movement and about Multiple Births Canada (and our Chapters) with your friends, family and co-workers through social media, word of mouth or in any way you can.
  4. Take an #UNSELFIE and share through social media! Use the hashtags - #givingMBC and #givingtuesdayca.

We hope you will take part in this national movement by taking a moment today to participate in one of the four ways listed above, in support of Multiple Births Canada.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter  - help build the excitement, share our messages and tell your story in support of MBC!

With sincerest appreciation,


Kimberley Weatherall, Executive Director

How Will You Help?

Each year more than 12,000 multiple-birth babies are born in Canada. While multiple births represent just over 3% of all Canadian births, they account for 28% of all Canadian preterm births.  Through your financial gift on Giving Tuesday you will make it possible for MBC to offer outreach, resources, support, services and education to multiple-birth individuals and families, as well as those professionals who support them.  

 Your donation on Giving Tuesday will help Multiple Births Canada:

  • Offer services such as MBC's toll free number, website, and the creation of new publications.
  • Support the development of projects such as the NICU Project - You Are Not Alone! - a campaign to reach new parents of multiples with preterm babies.
  • Create public relations tools such as posters and pamphlets, allowing for new and expectant parents to find help as soon as they learn they are expecting multiples.
