How DBP Gives Back
I'm just gonna come right out and say it: I did not grow up with a lot of money. Times were tough for many years during my childhood and my family relied on government assistance and food banks for the toughest times. That experience as a child instilled in me a deep need to help those who find themselves in similarly hard times.
To that end, Dream Big Printables donates one meal to a national food bank for every purchase made of my art. I don't ask for donations, I don't pad prices to cover this cost, and you don't have to do anything more than simply buy the art that you've come to my shop to buy anyway. And with your purchase, you're putting a very real meal into a very real, hungry belly :-)
So far Dream Big Printables has been able to provide tens of thousands of meals to food-insecure individuals, and that's all because of your support of my art. That is absolutely amazing, but I almost hate saying "tens of thousands" because such large numbers create a detachment from the personal pain each individual suffering from hunger feels. So please never forget that your purchase is going to make a very large impact for one child/mother/father/neighbor/human being who, for whatever reason, needs a helping hand at the moment.
Together, you and I can make a huge difference in someone's life by taking away their pain and fear of not knowing where their next meal will come from. None of us are in this crazy thing called life alone, and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me help those in need.
