It’s official – Furniture Bank smashed its previous Giving Tuesday record!

We put out a humble request for #GivingTuesday – to help us reach our goal of raising $500 – enough to furnish the homes of 2 families. We sent out our request on the interwebs and the response we got just blew us away!

With your help, we raised……. $950! That’s almost double our goal, an achievement we should all be proud of.

Giving Tuesday was created as a response to the immense amounts of money shelled out for consumer goods on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It was a way to show the world that we hadn’t forgotten about giving back to our communities. And it seems to have struck a cord.

We’re still waiting on the Canada’s results for #GivingTuesday 2014, but for now, we wanted to say again – Thank you! – for supporting our clients reestablish their lives in furnished homes.

P.S. If you’d still like to make a donation, its still not too late. Learn more about our holiday appeal here.
