What is #GivingTuesday?

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

“It Was Like A Day Without Cancer”

Healing Winds Vermont is a Burlington based nonprofit organization run primarily by dedicated volunteers, most of whom have been deeply affected by cancer, that share a desire to use sailing as a respite opportunity for those currently fighting cancer.

Through our three hour excursions aboard our dedicated vessel “Gypsy Wind,” we offer our guests, and their loved ones, a spirit-lifting “break on the lake.”

Hear the story of one of our guests and his partner, Tim and Candy:

We offer each sail at no charge to patients of all ages with all types of canceras well as their family, friends and caregivers. This is only made possible through the generosity of our donors.

THANK YOU for your support and PLEASE feel free to share what we do, our videos and donation page with your friends on social media!
