This time of year, I am reminded of how much I already have – and how much I can impact the lives of others. This holiday season, I encourage you to give with impact. Here are two opportunities you don’t want to miss.
Dallas Children’s Theater
As one of the top 5 theaters for youth in the US, Dallas Children’s Theater produces engaging educational plays that promote social values, moral integrity, and cultural diversity. DCT’s pioneering efforts to develop innovative “arts-in-education” programs have equipped Dallas-area schools with a powerful resource. DCT also provides up to 10,000 free or reduced fee tickets for children in low-income neighborhoods.
