Dream Duffel Cares
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."
- Winston Churchill
In 2017, Dream Duffel, LLC launched the #DreamDuffelCares Initiative to increase our involvement in the community and give back with the hope of making an impact. Our business and its employees support various non-profit organizations both locally and nationally through fundraising and volunteer efforts. We are proud to share all the details below and plan to update you with our further efforts!
Courage. Strength. Commitment. In recognition of September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we’re partnering with iDance4aCure and donating 10% of all Classic Backpack Sales back to the organization to support their effort to raise funds for research to find a cure for childhood cancer.
Through the end of the year, we will also be working with iDance4aCure to reward their highest overall fundraiser of 2017 with a Medium Black Dream Duffel.
Little things can make a big difference. Each individual Ronald McDonald House Charities chapter collects its own pop tabs to support its own programs. The funds generated from recycling these aluminum gems help offset the House’s expenses. We take part in this program by displaying pop tab collection houses throughout our facility.
In September of 2017 we took part in the Cook for Kids program in which we planned, prepared, and served meals to Ronald McDonald House families at a Twin Cities RMHC location.
During the entire month of October, Dream Duffel will be giving 10% of sales of ALL PINK PRODUCTS to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship. As the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the United States, BCRF gives 88% of its proceeds to breast cancer research and 3% to awareness programs.
Dream Duffel, LLC has a very special connection with Children’s Minnesota as the outstanding medical staff has repeatedly saved the life of one of our own. To give back to the place that has given us so much, our employees take part in a variety of annual events benefiting the organization. This past year, those events included the Heartbeat 5000 5K Walk/Run to raise money for the hospital’s Cardiovascular Care Unit and the Shine Bright Bash to support the Cancer Kids Fund.
Dream Duffel is dedicated to giving back in support of charities and non-profit organizations in our community and around the world. If you would like us to be part of your charitable event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
