D.A.R.E. was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 percent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 52 countries around the world. We work with the D.A.R.E program as professional fundraisers; in addition to fundraising we participate in a toy drive that we use to give back to our local community. Since October of 2015, in the greater Atlanta area, DARE To KARE and Global Enterprises Marketing have donated over $154,000 in toys to children in need and children in crisis. To a child in need, to a child in crisis, these are more than toys, they are beams of hope. We can say with pride we have touched the lives of thousands of children here in Atlanta. However, we must humbly admit we are merely the conduit for the caring and kind people of Atlanta. These toys let these children, facing real challenges in their personal life, know that someone cares. The outpouring of support speaks volumes about the caring and kindness of the good people of Atlanta. We project that over the next 12 months we will donate over $500,000 in toys to children in need, here in Atlanta. More information can be found at the D.A.R.E. To KARE page at www.dare.org.
