The Power of Generosity this #GivingTuesday

We are so grateful to our Mother Goose community for investing in supporting Parent-Child Mother Goose this past Giving Tuesday!On this special day focused on philanthropy, you responded with generous gifts celebrating the positive difference that P-CMGP makes in the lives of families and helping to ensure we can continue to support program teachers across the country in the year ahead. Your contributions help us to provide materials, networking opportunities, ongoing training and — most importantly — the sense of connection that enables teachers to do their utmost for the families in their programs.If you haven’t given yet, there’s still time to donate to our Giving Tuesday campaign!Thank you for supporting Parent-Child Mother Goose during this season of giving!

Giving Tuesday

Wow! Thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of our donors, we have already raised over $1200 this year. We’re hoping to reach our goal of raising $2022 before the year ends – can you help us get there with a donation today, on Giving Tuesday?

Young children and their families have been benefiting from PCMG for over 30 years — your donation will help to ensure that families continue to find joy together in singing and rhyming for years to come.

Even a small donation will help us to continue to certify new Mother Goose teachers, connect and support teachers and trainers across the country, develop and deliver new ongoing training opportunities, and advocate for the program. As an almost entirely volunteer-run organization, every dollar donated to the National Council of Parent-Child Mother Goose goes a long way, and makes a big difference!

Giving Tuesday only comes around once a year. Help us to continue to provide the resources and supports that Parent-Child Mother Goose teachers and trainers depend on, and keep our wonderful program in communities across the country.

You can make a secure online donation to us through CanadaHelps.


Here at the National Council of Parent-Child Mother Goose, we’re so excited that the biggest giving day of the whole year is almost here — Giving Tuesday, this November 29, 2022. We hope you are too!
To help get us all in the mood for Giving Tuesday, and in the true singing and rhyming spirit of Mother Goose, we couldn’t resist writing a little song. We think it’s kind of catchy, and we’ll bet that you just might find yourself humming it too (and, we hope, thinking about all the great reasons to support PCMG on this Giving Tuesday).
So without further ado, here is it is, to the tune of “Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round”:
Parent Child Mother Goose builds family relationships, community connections, and early literacy,
Parent Child Mother Goose does this and more, in every ten week session!
The families in the program love singing and rhyming, listening to stories, and meeting new friends,
The families in the program are happier and healthier, all around the country!
The teachers in the program need a network of support, ideas and resources, and ongoing training,
The teachers in the program deserve all this and more, because they’re making a difference!
The National Council members need your donation, on Giving Tuesday, to support the program,
The National Council members want you to know, that every dollar helps!
Parent Child Mother Goose builds family relationships, community connections, and early literacy,
Parent Child Mother Goose does this and more, in every ten week session!
Ta – da!
We sure hope that our little song inspires you to give to P-CMG on November 29. We’re a program with a joyful spirit and a playful nature, and yet one with deep and far-reaching benefits to participants. And that’s something worth supporting!
Please reach out to donate to Parent-Child Mother Goose this Giving Tuesday.
