The Distinctive Edge is proud to support the lifesaving mission of Operation Smile. Through the dedication and compassion of our team across the nation, we have an aggressive goal to raise $150,000 this year and sponsor a mission to heal the smiles of children in need and help fund missions globally.
Because of your efforts, children around the world will have a brighter future and the chance at a normal life. Thank you for your generosity and let’s make 2015 a success!
March for the Animals
The Distinctive Edge attended the March for the Animals, which is the Maryland SPCA‘s largest annual fundraiser, raising over $360,000 for the animals. This 1.5 mile walkathon is a great way for animal-lovers to support the SPCA’s mission of helping pets and people. The Distinctive Edge helped to raise money that goes toward the adoption centers, pet owner education, and the care of lost and homeless animals.
On Saturday, July 16th, the young working professionals from The Distinctive Edge and two other local marketing firms, came together to play and compete against each other in a kickball tournament to help raise money for Operation Smile.
After a fun day of competitive kickball, led by team captains Crysanthi and Assistant Manager Grant Rorison, the teams were provided hot dogs and drinks. By the end of the day they raised an additional $1000. The Distinctive Edge Inc has already helped raise more than $2000 for Operation Smile through fundraising activities by participants.
Save the Bay – Chesapeake Bay Foundation
The Distinctive Edge believes in helping to improve regional water quality and preserving the characteristics that make the Chesapeake Bay unique. Three times a year we go to a location along the rivers that connect to the bay and plant trees. Trees are crucial to the overall health of the watershed—they slow down runoff and the erosion of soil, which contains sediment, and they absorb the nutrients that are the main cause of pollutants in the Bay. Trees and forests also provide habitat for wildlife and help to cool stream temperatures.
The Distinctive Edge Hosts Tailgate Olympics!
We had over 50 teams of 2 coming out to play Tailgate Olympics to support Operation Smile. We raised over $700 towards Operation Smile. This is just one of many events that we will have over the next few months. Check out our Facebook page for more pictures of the event. Keep an eye out for updates on upcoming events!
OUR DAILY BREAD
Every holiday season The Distinctive Edge invests time in Our Daily Bread, working in the soup kitchen and serving food to those less fortunate. We also extend our help to those in need by holding a canned food drive at least three times a year.
March of Dimes
The Distinctive Edge administrator Kaitlyn participated in the march itself, thanks to the help of the company who organized a charity event to raise money for the March.
The entire company came together with their friends, family, and co-workers and played softball to raise money. Those that didn’t play participated in the big cookout, enjoying drinks and food with their game.
All told, the event raised over $200, which was matched by The Distinctive Edge and donated to the cause.
