Fundraising

Donations are vital to our District as they bring in extra funds that would enable so many wonderful events at no extra cost to our members.  Examples are two nights of dances with a DJ’s,  games, lower costs of banquet meals, off site activities and many other fun events.  Supporters nationwide have already demonstrated their commitment to the dwarfism community through fundraisers such as dinner parties, art auctions, sporting activities, celebratory occasions, or awareness events.

YANKEE CANDLE

District 1 is proud to announce the 2nd annual Yankee Candle fundraiser. See the information below and reach out to Linda with any questions or if you are having issues with the link.

INFO:

It’s October 1st which is the start of Dwarfism Awareness Month. In a continued effort to bring funds to our non-profit organization, we are holding our yearly Yankee Candle fundraiser. Yankee Candle will give 40% of profits directly to our organization which will help reduce costs to many members who may not be able to attend our gatherings. Below is our direct link. All items purchased will be shipped to your house. This is a perfect time to start thinking about holiday shopping for family, teachers, bus drivers, etc. Last year District 1 alone raised $1000, were hoping to exceed that this year to help towards a holiday party. Thank you in advance for your ongoing support to an organization near and dear to my family. This fundraiser is open from October 1-31st.
