Give a Day to World AIDS Day

Give one day's pay on or before World AIDS Day (December 1st)
Give a Day to World AIDS is a movement of Canadians responding to the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Each year, individuals, families and workplaces across the country have participated by donating one day's pay in honour of World AIDS Day (December 1st) to support grassroots AIDS initiatives through the Stephen Lewis Foundation.

Start a workplace campaign
Don't have a workplace campaign? Start one! Challenge your colleagues to join and give one day's pay.

How to I calculate one day's pay?
To calculate a day's pay, divide your annual pay (pre-tax or after tax — it's up to you) by 210, the number of working days in a year. We suggest giving a day's pay, but it is up to you to give what you are able — a half-day, a few hours, a week's pay. Whatever you are able to give, it will make a difference.

Host a Harambee
This year, host your own Give a Day Harambee, “a party with a purpose”, inspired by the East African community gatherings where people pull together for a common purpose. To find out more about hosting a Harambee, please click here.
