Dunkin’ Donuts Raises over $3,000 for Fulfill Your Destiny!

1010161308a

From September 20th-22nd, nineteen Dunkin’ Donuts franchises in Tampa Bay supported Fulfill Your Destiny by donating proceeds from purchases made! The funds acquired from sales and donations from customers raised over $3,000 for Fulfill Your Destiny – $3,773 to be exact!

1010161307d
Karen wanted to thank Dunkin’ Donuts and all of the loyal customers for such an amazing turnout! In just three days the Tampa Bay community was able to provide so much for individuals whose careers have been altered by injury or other unforeseen circumstances.

1010161307b

For those of you who are not familiar with Fulfill Your Destiny, here are our objectives as a charity—

1) Keep People Working:  To provide financial support to individuals whose careers have been altered due to permanent injuries or unforeseen circumstances, including, but not limited to traumatic brain injuries for the purpose of obtaining vocational counseling, educational or occupational retraining.

2) Inspire and Motivate:  To educate others about those personal challenges facing any of us suffering injuries that permanently changes our lives. How we confront our challenges is the key to the core motto of Fulfill Your Destiny: Character Drives Destiny. We teach people that we are all defined by our character, which compels us to pick up the pieces and carry on when confronted with tremendous obstacles.

3) Build Awareness and Educate:  To offer assistance – educational, financial, volunteer time and/or in-kind services directly to individuals and other non-profit corporations, to increase awareness of traumatic brain injuries and to support those who have experienced TBIs.

Thank you for supporting the movement!
