Team National One of 19 Direct Selling Companies Whose Combined Donations Total $16.6 Million to the TODAY Show Toy and Gift Drive

Davie, FL (Nov. 20) – Team National, a member company of the Direct Selling Association, participated in the 19th Annual TODAY Show Holiday Toy and Gift Drive. The DSA presented the direct selling industry’s donation live in Rockefeller Plaza on Monday.

Team National, along with eighteen other direct selling companies, donated a combined total of more than $16.6 million in products and cash to the Toy Drive. In its nine years of participation, DSA member companies have donated more than $100 million in products, services and cash to the Toy Drive. Once again, Team National is proud to make a contribution for such a worthy cause.  Their donation of $8,000 is just one way TN reaches out and pitches in, helping provide children with the holiday spirit of gift giving, putting smiles on their faces and simply letting them enjoy being a kid.

“We are thrilled to participate with the DSA in the TODAY show Toy and Gift drive,” said Angela Chrysler, Team National President and CEO. “Our mission of helping others extends beyond our independent sales field, to the lives they touch and the money we can share to help charitable organizations all over the US. Helping US communities in need is an important part of our mission and vision.”

 “The TODAY Show Holiday Gift Drive is just one example each year of how direct selling serves as a force for good in our communities, across the country and throughout the world,” said Amy Robinson, DSA’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Every day, direct sellers help others achieve their goals through the products and opportunities they offer, but their involvement in charitable and philanthropic activities reinforces the positive impact direct selling has on millions of lives each year.”

The TODAY Show Toy Drive is a project of the Today Show Charitable Foundation, Inc., a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Donations are matched with the needs of more than 200 organizations with which the Today Show Charitable Foundation works. As part of this year’s Toy Drive, DSA member companies will send items to dozens of organizations in states from California to New York.
