Giving Tuesday – an opportunity to contribute to your community

November 27 is Giving Tuesday.  Giving Tuesday has become a world wide movement encouraging people to make charitable gifts to worthwhile charities of their choice.  Whether it be a financial donation or a pledge to get involved as a volunteer, it’s a great way to give back.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we ask you to consider making a donation to El Sistema Grey Bruce – The Big Sound.

Since The Big Sound extends no monetary costs/fees to its participants and their families, it’s success is totally reliant upon the community’s support.

There are many ways to help The Big Sound on November 27, 2018.  You can donate via CanadaHelps, you can donate an instrument, or you can volunteer.  Here are some examples of the costs to run this program:

$3500 – the cost for one child for an entire year

$2000 – instruments for a trio: violin, viola, and cello

$1000 – one cello

$500 – one violin or viola

$250 – sheet music for the children

$100 – strings for four violins

$192– a healthy snack for one child every day during the school year
