COVID-19 has affected the mental health of millions nationwide, with contributing factors including isolation, loss of jobs, fear of the disease, bereavement, and uncertainty about the future. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted or halted critical mental health services in 93% of countries worldwide while the demand for mental health is increasing. People with pre-existing mental, neurological or substance use disorders are also more vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection  ̶  they may stand a higher risk of severe outcomes and even death."

"While we continue to address day-to-day challenges directly related to the pandemic, we believe providing additional support during this time will have a significant impact on individual and family mental wellness. Our objective is to provide a platform supporting individuals of all ages throughout the pandemic while we continue to be socially responsible," states Mrs. Toonen.

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Created in 2012 as a simple idea, it encourages people to do good. Over the past eight years it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
