To Our Destination Imagination Family:
Welcome to another exciting year of Destination Imagination. No one would deny the 2020-21 program year has certainly provided us all with unique challenges. In true Destination Imagination fashion, our participants have risen to and above the obstacles placed in their paths. For every situation, there are always possibilities if you simply look for them. And all of you, our DI family, whether you are a participant, a volunteer or a supporter of DI, you continue to work to find a path to your success.
To all of our DI teams, we are looking forward to viewing your Team Challenge video solutions. If the submissions for DI’s 2020’s Virtual Global Finals are of any indication, we are certain we will once again be completely inspired and amazed by the creativity of your solutions. The planning and teamwork utilized for each of the team presentations were clearly evident. Not only were your enthusiasm, energy and teamwork clearly on display but the joy and fun you had in creating your video solutions came through loud and clear. Well done! Hollywood better watch out as the next generation of motion picture directors and stars are on the horizon and will make their presence known very soon.
To our volunteers and supporters, your financial contributions have helped DI tremendously this past year. With the loss of the revenue from Global Finals 2020 and a challenging start to the current season, you’ve been with DI every step of the way. As we enter 2021, DI is in a fragile, but hopeful place. We will continue to rely on the generosity of our supporters like you to invest in DI and our mission to inspire and equip youth to imagine and innovate through the creative process. If you would like to make a gift to DI today, you can make your gift online through DI’s secure giving portal. If you would like to speak with someone at DI about making a gift in a different way or you think your company would be interested in supporting or sponsoring DI’s mission, please let us know using this link. We’d love to talk to you.
Please know that all of us at Destination Imagination take immense pride in the growth and accomplishments of our global community of creators. You represent our best hope for a positive and inclusive future society. The skills and attributes you have embodied as members of our DI family will serve you well as you lead us with creative confidence into this bright and hopeful future.
Good luck to all of our teams this year and wherever your journey takes you. May you and all your families and friends enjoy a safe, healthy and fulfilling 2021.
