The holiday season is upon us! In the coming weeks, it’ll be hard to focus on the real meaning of the season with so many tasks, messages – and yes, appeals – bombarding us. Before we become overwhelmed, today is a perfect time to take a breath and consider what is most important.

“Giving Tuesday” is a movement started in recent years as a response to the commercialization and consumerism of the post-Thanksgiving shopping bonanza beginning with Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Everyone loves a bargain but with so much attention focused on buying, it’s hard to remember the spirit of giving that is at the heart of the holiday season!

With your help, NFI North has been able to serve 685 families this year – more than ever before! Our impact on the lives of people struggling with mental health is to be celebrated. Yet, we know that we have so much more to do.

On this giving Tuesday, we’re raising funds for our children’s residential homes which serve children ages 5-18. The holidays can be tough for these kiddos and we aim to make them as positive as possible. They need our best, and we hope you will help us to provide it.

With your support, we are changing lives. Thank you. Happy Thanksgiving.
