Until recently, with the expanded nationwide reach of the Ticket to Dream Foundation, it was often difficult for companies to focus large scale charitable efforts towards children in foster care due to the regional scope of existing programs. Now through Ticket to Dream helping foster kids is easy with communication and implementation all through 1 contact reaching over 185,000 children in 44 states.
Backed with years of retail experience the Ticket to Dream team is ready to help you engage your employees, customers and help kids.
