One Herd’s Donation to Lend A Hand
One Herd was created with the idea of community in mind. Whether you went to NDSU, grew up in Fargo, or North Dakota for that matter, or maybe you just like green and gold, we are all fans and a part of Bison Nation — or One Herd. With this ideal at the forefront we thought it was only right that we would start a give back program. We started the campaign of donating $1 per product sold, whether that be through our website, or our kiosk at the mall. At the beginning of the year we had the goal in mind of raising $5,000, at this level that would make us one of the platinum sponsors for Lend A Hand. There are a couple of reasons we decided to go with Lend A Hand, one was that all of the money raised by Lend A Hand goes directly to helping out FM families, 100% of it. The other deciding factor was that Dakota Medical Foundation would match our donation, which was a no brainer. Lend A Hand helps out families in Cass and Clay county that are experiencing a medical crisis, whether that be a life threatening illness, or a premature baby, for example. Lend A Hand has grown leaps and bounds over the last 6 years, this last year they were able to raise $1.9 million for 53 families. It makes us very proud that we are able to contribute to this great cause and it wouldn’t have been possible without you Bison Nation! This is truly Bison Pride at it’s best! Here is to a new year, let’s see how much we can contribute in 2015!
