“Giving back to charitable organizations is something we really enjoy doing all year long. We remain mindful of those that don't have as much, especially during the holiday season. So whether it’s time, money, or other assets, we are glad and very grateful to be able to contribute,” says Team National Executive Vice President Phil Chrysler.
“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 DSA Chief Marketing Officer Amy Robinson. “Participating in the TODAY Show Holiday Gift Drive has become a tradition for many of us in the direct selling industry. The outpouring of support for this effort over the past decade has been incredible. Even more, many of these companies also contribute to a wide variety of charitable and philanthropic causes throughout the year, and each fosters positive change in the world through the products and opportunities they offer.”
