Crystal D, the leading supplier of corporate awards and gifts, has unveiled the four nonprofit organizations selected to receive donations as part of the company’s giveback program, Crystal D Cares, in 2024.
“We created Crystal D Cares to honor the legacy of our late founder, Chuck Dahlgren, recognizing his deep belief in the power of generosity and profound desire to share what we have with others,” said Crystal D President and CEO Jeanne Dahlgren. “We are excited about the organizations we have chosen for this year, and beyond thankful for the work they do in our world.”
With every purchase from the Legacy Gallery — a collection of 10 exclusive new award designs — the company donates 20 percent of the total product sale to nonprofit organizations with focus areas such as children, seniors, veterans, community organizations, animals, the environment, and health and research causes.
The four nonprofits Crystal D Cares has selected for 2024 are:
- Water for South Sudan — This charity works to address two areas of concern: human life and the environment. Nearly 60 percent of the population of South Sudan does not have access to clean, safe water — a basic human necessity — which is the key to good health and safety, and also affords communities with additional educational and economic opportunities. Just $2 is enough to provide clean water to one person for an entire year.
- International Rett Syndrome Foundation — An organization dear to Chuck’s heart — as a close family friend is experiencing Rett syndrome — the Foundation is making strides with research breakthroughs. The FDA has
approved trials for two therapy drugs to help extend the independent life of the patient so they can live at home longer. This gives hope to the family as well as others affected by Rett syndrome.
- Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption — Dave Thomas, founder of the Wendy’s restaurant chain, has helped bring children to adoption through the foster care system for years. His Foundation is dedicated to finding forever families for the more than 140,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States and Canada.
- 4 Paws for Ability — This organization has provided more than 18,000 service dogs to children, adults and veterans with disabilities and special needs. The specially trained canines can help give the gift of independence and safety in any number of ways, including high and low blood sugar detection, mobility, seizure response, tracking and more. Donations are used to help provide food, veterinary care, and other essentials as 4 Paws for Ability prepares and trains each service dog.
