Spring Into Action!
Did you know April is National and Global Volunteer Month? If you’re looking for more ways to connect with others and help those less fortunate, there’s never been a better time to volunteer.
Giving is at Our Core
At DVTD, we believe society’s greatest challenges are overcome with prayer, giving hearts, and an entrepreneurial spirit. DVTD was founded to make a greater impact across the globe. This is why every product, every purchase, and every person contributes to the giving.
As you know we are constantly expanding the causes we support. Every month, we add new social impact brands that give back to various causes as part of their business model. In addition, we donate a portion of sales and enrollment fees to our Cause of the Month. For the month of April, we’re excited to partner with The Miracle League.
The Miracle League
The Miracle League knows they cannot change or cure the medical issues life has dealt children with disabilities. BUT what they can do is provide them with an opportunity to experience the joy and benefits that come from playing our National pastime—baseball.
The Miracle League’s mission is to provide opportunities for children with disabilities to play Miracle League baseball, regardless of their abilities; promote community support and sponsorship of Miracle Leagues, and promote the construction of special facilities that meet the unique needs of Miracle League players and their families.
