#GivingTuesday 
Give a gift that matters this November. 
 
 Giving Tuesday is coming up on November 27th, 2018. Last year, 6 million Canadians made a donation to a charitable organization of their choice in support of Giving Tuesday. 
 
This year, DMRF Canada wants to raise $5,000.00 and we want to bring on 100 new monthly donors! You can help us reach our goal by considering donating $5. Remember no amount is to small, end every little bit counts.
