'Tis the season for thanks and giving

Our long-time client, Amy Robinson of the Direct Selling Association, appeared live on the NBC “Today” show Monday to kick off the 16th annual Holiday Toy and Gift Drive. She presented more than $15.7 million dollars in products and cash donated by 25 DSA member companies to help needy children and families across the US. What a great way to spend a morning. But more importantly, what a difference a day makes.

These companies donated a host of items ranging from cosmetics and children’s clothing to backpacks and jewelry. For so many children and adults across the country, gifts presented by groups like DSA are the only ones they'll receive this holiday season. And at a time when so many people are in need but few organizations are in a position to give, the kindness and generosity extended by DSA's member companies means so much.

Over the last six years, DSA member companies have donated more than $52 million in products, services and cash to the TODAY Holiday Toy and Gift Drive. The following DSA member companies donated this year: 4Life, Amway, Arbonne, Avon, Blessings Unlimited, Creative Memories, CUTCO, DeTech, Essential BodyWear, Jafra, L'Bel Paris, Lia Sophia, Mary Kay, Oxyfresh, PartyLite, RealKidz Clothing, Rodan & Fields, Shaklee, Stampin' Up!, TARRAH Cosmetics, Team National, The Pampered Chef, Thirty One Gifts, USANA, Vantel Pearls

Nine companies will be featured individually on TODAY over the holidays to present their donations.
