Upper Deck’s Customer Care staff are taught to look for opportunities to make an impression in the lives of youngsters. As a company, Upper Deck goes above and beyond to provide kids with incredible experiences. Whether it be the “Kid Correspondent” at the All-Star Game, listening to a young fan’s idea at a card show, or having a young card artist set up at our corporate booth; no company does more to engage the next generation of collectors than Upper Deck.
When Upper Deck’s Customer Care Supervisor Jeff Dotseth saw this letter to Santa online, he knew he had to do something for this youngster who was a victim of domestic violence.
Dotseth contacted the center where the family is currently staying for the holidays and he spoke with a staffer there who said that there were 73 kids there for the holidays, ranging from infant to 16-years-old. While we think that trading cards and card games are very important here, at the end of the day, they are a distraction from the stress of the world. We know our product can provide an escape for our fans and maybe that’s exactly what these kids need.
Through Upper Deck’s Random Acts of Kindness program, we put together a nice package of holiday cheer for these youngsters.
We’d love to see our fans get involved too. Here’s the address where you can contribute to the cause to help brighten the holidays for these kids.
