Now, more than ever, wishes need you.

Please help “Dive In & Help Out” with this great cause by joining as a team member, meeting at the beach, or simply making a donation to our team’s Long Beach Polar Bear Splash fundraising goal.


"What is a Dive In Help Out Mindset?"
Let me explain using just one example from my own life.
Giving blood was just something that was taught in school, promoted everywhere, and something you did. When you receive "THE CALL" from the blood center you booked an appointment and thanked the caller for the work they're doing.
I remember giving blood for the first time in the Gymnasium of Levittown Memorial High School. My best friends and I drank a beer after to see how it affected us. (Just telling the story ) Then several years later my mother-in-law was diagnosed and died of cancer and started my own Dive In Help Out mindset by giving Platelets regularly. I set a goal one year to donate once a month for a year falling short of that goal... I did accomplish 11 of 12 donations that year.
With 53-lifetime blood donations under my belt, I recently realized how long it took me, and how little I contributed.
I heard it say that..."One horse pulls one log while two horses pull eleven logs"
