Donate Pins to Support Graduating DI Participants

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. Thanks to your support, DISC will be awarding up to $30,000 in scholarships to eligible students.

Their big fundraising items this year includes 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. Last year, they sold nearly 9,000 pins and have no back stock to support their scholarship efforts. To donate your vintage pins to DISC or to find out more about the scholarship fundraiser, please contact Charles Compton at [email protected].

Also, if you are attending Global Finals, be sure to stop by the DISC booth and donate a set of your Regional or Affiliate Pins for their Pin Towel Silent Auction. (Their Pin Towel is their largest fundraising item and typically brings in bids of up to $2,000!)

And if you’re feeling generous, please consider donating an extra set of your pins so that they will have them available for auction in future years.

Thank you in advance for your support!
