Operation Underground Railroad exists to rescue children from human trafficking, and we recently partnered with them to help make this a reality. Their expertise allows them to run operations that successfully rescue children from unthinkable situations, and nurture them back to a better life.
An average rescue mission cost is $50,000, so through this partnership we set a goal to raise $100,000! Due to the support of our Merchandisers and Customers, in less than five months we achieved it! We were able to present the founder of O.U.R., Tim Ballard, our donation at our 2019 Convention, and we could not be more grateful to all of you who helped us give back.

CHOC stands for Children’s Hospital of Orange County. They are a non-profit hospital located in Southern California. Their mission is to nurture, advance and protect the health and well-being of children. DotDotSmile saw an opportunity to partner with CHOC as part of their legacy as a business. DotDotSmile truly believes in pouring into the world and showing people that their lives matter. “They really strive to make the children feel comfortable, protect them, and to know they really have their best interest at heart.“ Said Nicole Thompson Owner of DotDotSmile. To achieve their goal of raising $50,000 to donate, they set aside specific dresses and discounted them to their Merchandisers, then donated 10% of each purchase towards a donation to CHOC. Within four months DotDotSmile was able to reach their goal. Take a look at the video and see how our Merchandisers and customers were able to make a difference and change lives.
