The Challenge:

This premiere family destination in St. Paul not only wanted to entertain; it also understood the importance of inspiring caring and compassion in its young visitors. It was seeking fun, engaging activities with a “giving” component.

DGT’s Solution:

Help develop the popular Small Hands, Big Hearts: Sparking the Spirit of Givingevent.

  • Co-hosted the annual event, which included simple service projects for families and children.
  • Created materials for families on the concept of giving back.
  • Inaugurated the “Sock Hop Line,” a clever idea to collect donated socks for a local homeless shelter.
  • Suggested easily accessible online service project ideas for families.
The materials DGT created for our visitors include some of the best information for families I’ve ever seen.”
