We've always felt it's our responsibility as a company to give back. But giving shouldn’t be dictated from the top — everyone should be involved, at a personal level. Which is why, over the last year, Blend celebrated birthdays by donating to an organization that means something special to the celebrant. In doing so, it opened our eyes and hearts to many new ways to help our community here in Sioux Falls and beyond. 

As a business, Blend is committed to giving back more than ever before. We are happy to announce that we're a matching sponsor for donations to Girl Scouts Dakota Horizons! Their mission and activities align well with many things we value at Blend. 

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience focuses on four key areas:

  • Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM)
  • Outdoors
  • Life Skills
  • Entrepreneurship

Whether you choose to help support this organization or one that is special to you, please consider personally donating to a cause you care about today!

Give wherever you can.

On this #GivingTuesday, we hope you'll choose to give back in some way as well. Here’s a bit about the other organizations we’ve supported this year. Learn a bit more about the organizations we've supported this year. We hope you'll choose to support them too:
