Retailer Donation Challenge: Give The Gift Of A Loving Home


By Erin Harris, editor-in-chief

Donations Giving Back

Is your organization is interested in giving back? Today’s your lucky day. Darren Singer, SVP Retail Health and Wellness at Shopko Stores, has issued a donation challenge to like-minded retailers and partners to join Retail Orphan Initiative (RetailROI) to make a difference. If you're unfamiliar with RetailROI, its purpose is to raise awareness and provide real solutions for the more than 400 million vulnerable children worldwide.

Darren has donated $1,000 to RetailROI, and he's challenging his friends and colleagues in the retail industry to donate as well. A donation of $1,000 to RetailROI this month means 50 special needs orphans can move from an impersonal orphanage into a loving foster home.

Whether you are participating in RetailROI’s March Gladness (think March Madness with a purpose!) or simply want to make a donation, please consider getting involved.  One hundred percent of the money raised after payment fees goes to help these children. 

Please contact me directly at if you have any questions about Darren’s donation challenge or RetailROI.
