We believe strongly in helping others. We’ve been greatly blessed and strive to be a blessing to others through disc sports. Below are a couple of the causes which we’ve been fortunate enough to be able to help. If you want to help our causes, please contact us. If you have a worthy cause, please contact us. We will try to help in any way that we can.
Breaking Borders - breakingborders.org
Breaking Borders is an organization that uses Ultimate as a tool to promote strong character development in today's youth. Breaking Borders has worked internationally in Nicaragua and Colombia and stateside at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Breaking Borders accomplishes their mission by using ultimate clinics and leadership events to inspire youth to reach their full potential. Breaking Borders uses specific ultimate drills and lessons to create lasting impressions within the youth that will allow them to positively impact their communities. Breaking Borders not only desires to inspire youth on a global scale but to be a vessel for cultural exchange. Everyone who participates on a Breaking Borders trip is awakened to a new culture, new customs, and new people. This exchange of values changes people's perspectives and makes them more aware of the world around them.
“Disc Store has been supporting Breaking Borders from the beginning with jerseys, discs, swag, and advertising. They have helped make every trip possible through their donations and discounts and are an integral part to inspiring youth on a global level. Breaking Borders is thankful for the support received from Disc Store and hopes that this is just the beginning of a long lasting relationship.” – Chasen Brokaw
Ultimate Cares – UltimateCares.org
Ultimate Cares uses the fun and camaraderie of Ultimate frisbee to raise awareness for diseases that children face and to inspire others to help in supporting these children and their families. By selling discs printed with drawings from children with chronic illnesses and their stories, UC helps raise awareness.The profits go to families in need to help defray the costs of caring for a child with a serious illness. All profits go towards helping children in need.
With the generous support of our wonderful customers, Disc Store has raised over $1,470 dollars to support sick children and their families.
Early Recognition is Critical - (E.R.I.C.) - earlyrecognitioniscritical.org/
E.R.I.C. employs Ultimate Frisbee Clinics and Tournaments to teach youth about body and cancer symptom awareness and the importance of healthy living. They host youth clinics across the nation and need your help spreading the word!
Little Ones Ministries – lomkids.org
Little Ones Ministries serves impoverished children and has a unique strategy of reaching the community through the operation of a Hope Center, the heart and soul of their ministry, directly placed in an impoverished area. They seek to spread the love of Christ to these kids, and believe that every child needs 2 things: Food and Hope.
Partnered with local churches, a Hope Center is a place where kids can go to get off the street and enjoy several privileges that come with being a member of Hope Centers. Hope Centers are staffed with mentors from local churches who invest into the children daily through their personal relationships. LOM uses Ultimate as a tool to bring kids from the community together in a fun, safe, and positive atmosphere. Our discs have been sent to LOM in Mexico and Nicaragua.
“Disc Store has been a huge part of the ministry by providing discs to our Hope Centers in both Mexico and Nicaragua. Disc Store has allowed us to use the sport of Ultimate as a relationship building tool and alternative activity for the community so stricken by poverty and depression. Our Hope Center mentors have formed programs around Ultimate that were only possible by the generous donations from DiscStore.com. Disc Store cares so much more about simply providing great discs and customer service, they genuinely care about people, and that’s what makes them the best disc company in the world.” – Evan Hoffpauir
