We want to help change these statistics!
By supporting The Matching Dots you are helping to make the world a better place. We have partnered with Stop Hunger Now and for every item that we sell we feed TWO hungry kiddos. In addition to that, every year we put together events to raise funds for various non-profit agencies throughout the US.
You are always welcome to attend one of our events and be a part of this movement. Sign up for our newsletter and besides being the first to hear about new products and promotions, we will keep you informed as to how you can help!
