Giving Tuesday

Giving Tuesday

GivingTuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.  This day of philanthropy takes place immediately following Black Friday and Cyber Monday…and officially kicks off the Giving Season!

This year, Giving Tuesday is happening on Tuesday, November 29th.

In honour of this international day of giving, we are asking individuals, businesses and organizations to help purchase a new, accessible, therapeutic bathtub ($33,500) and ensure patients at Georgian Bay General Hospital have access to comfortable, healing and relaxing baths to assist in their recovery.

The current bathtub on the 2N inpatient unit at GBGH is 45 years old.  Replacement parts are no longer available, making it nearly impossible to service, and its outdated design makes it difficult for patients to get comfortable. 

New tubs are specially designed to accommodate patients with mobility challenges, allowing them to reap the great health benefits of bathing while they are ill. The new tub is also designed with comfort in mind, with adjustable height and multiple shower wands, and features specialty functions for cleaning sensitive skin. 

To help the Foundation achieve their goal to purchase a new patient bathtub, Nick & Marina Boudouris have offered to match all donations on GivingTuesday, up to a total of $10,000.  

“Our hospital is so important to the community. We want every patient to have access to a warm, therapeutic bath to help in their healing. I challenge all of our local businesses to join me in supporting this campaign – I’ll match your donation dollar-for-dollar so we can buy this new tub for our friends, neighbours and loved ones.”
