Dropping Dimes for Hope Challenge
The term “dropping dimes” means making assists in basketball. Here at EDDF, we provide the assist to sarcoma patients and their families. How can you help? The Dropping Dimes for Hope Challenge is our annual coin drive. Did you know when you fill a standard 16.9 oz water bottle with dimes, it is about $100 dollars? Recruit 10 friends, and you could easily raise $1000 to support the EDDF mission and programs. Filled water bottles can then be dropped off at our signature events throughout the year or converted to check and mailed to EDDF.
This is an ideal fundraiser for individuals, youth groups, teams and companies. So grab your water bottle, gather your friends and drop your dimes!
When you are ready to begin, register your drive online. Once we hear from you, we will list your organization on our website as a participant in the challenge.
We have made it simple to join the challenge. Just follow the steps below.
Submitting Your Donations to EDDF
Your dimes should be counted and converted to checks prior to mailing to EDDF. If you use a coin counting machine, please beware that they can charge up to 10% of your total donation. If you are in the Dallas area, you can also drop off your dimes at an EDDF event throughout the year. We will announce the final amount collected for the year at our final event. You can also check challenge progress by visiting this page for updates.
Once your drive has ended, please send your donation to:
