Learn more about the the Home for Little Wanderers and how you can help!
Beginning back in 1976, me and a few of my skydiving buddies formed a skydive exhibition team. We were asked to jump into all kinds of events in all sorts of places... schools, stadiums, beaches, city parks, you name it we probably jumped into it. The sponsors would pay us for the jump and from the start we all decided to donate our time and all of the profits to worthy causes. We believed it was "Good Karma! The first ten years would split the money among mostly child related causes, then in the mid-eighties we settled on donating exclusively to The Home for Little Wanderers. Eventually, I decided to underwrite the cost of all these charity jumps through G.F. Sprague and to donate the full proceeds of the jump events.
It's been over forty years now since we started, and most of the team has moved away to the Sunbelt. With fewer professional jumps, we were looking for a new way to donate to this wonderful cause. After some thought, we decided to involve you, our customers. How? By donating 1% of your initial purchase to The Home for Little Wanderers. So, for example, if you were to buy a $10,000 project, $100.would be donated. This donation comes directly out of our bottom line, with no additional cost to you! During one of our discussions prompting this campaign, our senior certified expert Mark Vaccaro came up with the perfect way to define this gifting program..."Everyone deserves a good roof over their head." I think we will all be proud to help out these deserving children.
