DubLi recently aligned itself …

… with one of the most notable children’s charities in the country; Blessings in a Backpack and donated the entire revenue from a recent charitable auction in order to raise money for this worthy cause. The customer’s of DubLi.com really showed their support as Dean Mannheimer, a vice-president with DubLi Network presented Blessings in a Backpack founder Stan Curtis with a check for $13,700.

Proceeds from the donation will go to feed children grades K-5 in Title 1 public schools who qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Meal Program and may not have any or enough food on the weekends. $80 feeds a child in the program for an entire school year. Following a donation, a school is chosen and a local grocer partners with the program to provide food for meals that are placed in backpacks. Every Friday, students receive their backpacks which include ready to eat food items: Fruit Roll Ups, Pop Tarts, Lemonade and other drink mix packs, Instant Noodles, Peanut Butter, Macaroni and Cheese, Rice, Pasta, Instant Potatoes, Dry Cereal, etc. All food choices are kid friendly. This means the food distributed is healthy, light in weight and easy for children of all ages to carry, easy to make, and non-perishable. They rely on private donors such as you to purchase this food, as well as supermarkets which give them substantial discounts.

The charity is endorsed by many corporate clients, professional athletes and notable Hollywood celebrities like actress Hilary Duff, shown here in a public appearance at a local school.

Blessings in a Backpack founded by Stan Curtis is currently feeding over 11,500 children in Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, California and New York. The program is a hybrid of private sector funding and public partnerships carried out in public schools.

Blessings in a Backpack started with three elementary schools in Kentucky and now serves over 50 schools across the nation. They saw a great opportunity with DubLi’s auction portal and immediately signed up for the Partner Program to advance their awareness. The results have been extremely favorable and continue to generate strong public interest in the cause.

DubLi continues to break new ground by making strategic alliances with charities that truly make a difference in the lives of children. DubLi’s first charity auction featured American Idol winner Jordin Sparks with proceeds benefiting the Sparks Foundation and now with the overwhelming success of it’s second charity auction, Blessings in a Backpack, they will continue to forge new relationships with noteworthy non-profit organizations helping them with much needed donations which can be used to make an immediate impact in the lives of our most precious resource…our children. We are proud to be associated with this incredible cause and thank the thousands of DubLi customers who made this donation possible.
