Considering the impact of the #GivingTuesday movement, we felt it important to challenge YOU to get involved and give back again this year! We've sponsored a fantastic cause, Camp Trillium - learn more about it!
What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a national giving day, which falls on Tuesday, November 28, 2017 - the Tuesday following Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday Canada has become a giving back movement, helping open the giving season, while encouraging citizens to think about others and the positive impact they can have during the holiday season.

Get Involved with Camp Trillium
Receiving a childhood cancer diagnosis can impact a family’s life forever and unfortunately, the reality is that each year more than 450 children in Ontario receive this life-changing diagnosis.
For over 30 years Camp Trillium has been committed to providing fun, safe and enriching camp programs to children and families across Ontario impacted by childhood cancer.What makes Camp Trillium truly unique is that all programs are offered in a family centred approach, which means that Camp Trillium welcomes the impacted child, as well as their mom, dad, brothers, and sisters.
While at Camp, children and families have the opportunity to participate in activities such as hiking, sailing, swimming, fishing, and archery. Parents, siblings, and patients alike are temporarily free from the burden of disease.
All programs are offered free of charge and campers range in ages from 0 – 65+. As a registered charity, Camp Trillium receives no on-going government funding and relies on the generosity of donors and volunteers to support their year-round operations.
Each year more than 1,000 families benefit from Camp Trillium through overnight, in-clinic and day camp programs. Camp Trillium provides families with the opportunity to connect with others, to reconnect as a family, to play and to heal.
Youngs Insurance is very passionate about their #GiveBackOntario initiative, as they are dedicated to making a difference in the communities they operate in throughout Ontario. #GiveBackOntario works to inspire and challenge Ontarians to get involved and give back to their communities.
