Donate Pins to Support DISC

By: Tina Shaffer

The Destination Imagination Support Committee (DISC) needs your help! DISC operates a booth at Global Finals to raise money for scholarships for graduating Destination Imagination participants. In addition to helping graduating students, 15 percent of the funds raised for DISC this year will go toward helping teams that need financial support for attending Global Finals 2019.

DISC’s big fundraising items this year include bags of vintage (non-current DI season) pins. The sale of these bags of vintage pins accounts for 50-75% of their funds raised each year. To donate your vintage pins to DISC or to find out more about the scholarship fundraiser, please contact Charles Compton at [email protected]. You don’t need to be attending Global Finals to participate!

Also, if you are attending Global Finals 2019, be sure to stop by the DISC booth and donate a set of your Regional or Affiliate Pins for their Pin Towel Silent Auction. (The Pin Towel is their largest fundraising item and typically brings in bids of up to $2,000!)  You can also donate an extra set of your pins so they are available for auction at future Global Finals.
