 The Challenge

The DLD Challenge encourages high school students to eat lunch with random students from their grade. The challenge helps reverse the damaging effects of social media and builds  students’ confidence to turn strangers into friends.  DLD creates an environment where students can practice the art of making new friends. It also reduces school bullying and builds stronger school’s cultures. Our survey revealed that 90% of students would participate in a DLD Challenge if it were available at their school.

The Mission

The DLD Challenge

One of life’s most valuable skills is the ability to turn a stranger into a friend. Google, Microsoft, and Apple were started by friends. Three companies, started by friends, have created over a trillion dollars of wealth – that’s one tenth the value of all the gold in the world. Sadly, a generation is being raised on social media which is causing them to lose the art of turning a stranger into a friend. On top of that, “Don’t Talk To Strangers” is one of most heard comments growing up. Our mission is to equip students with the skills to make new friends.  

The high school DLD Challenge will encourage and reward students to be bold and courageous  to eat lunch with random students. DLD fosters an environment where students can practice the art of making new friends. It also reduces school bullying and builds healthier school cultures. Our survey revealed that 90% of students would participate in a DLD Challenge if it were available at their school.

Funding

 We need your help to fund the challenge. Please consider giving a donation or becoming a sponsor to impact the lives of 500,000 high school students across the country. We need to raise $1.5 million dollars to launch DLD Challenges in two hundred high schools. $270K goes towards supporting a traveling team that will visit high schools conducting DLD launch rallies. $330K goes towards DLD Ambassador students marketing kits. $900K goes towards gift cards to incentivize students to participate in the challenge.

The Team 

 Five recent high school graduates will travel across the country conducting high school DLD launch rallies. The team will be a diversification of races, cultures, and ethnicities.  High school students will be able to sign up as DLD Ambassadors at rallies. Each grade level will have a certain amount of ambassadors that will help promote, register, and coordinate their school’s  DLD challenge.
