About Twin Ports Dermatology’s “Give Back” Campaign
When Duluth native Anthony Smith and his wife Heather began the process of opening Twin Ports Dermatology in 2015, they had two main goals. The first was to provide the Northland with quality, accessible Dermatology care. The second was to find a way to give back to the community they call home.
Twin Ports Dermatology is excited to announce our “Give Back” campaign. The “Give Back” campaign will allow Twin Ports Dermatology to support the community that supports us. Starting November 2021, a monthly donation will be given to a local or MN/WI-based organization.
Heather and Anthony have incorporated their team of employees to join them in this campaign by helping select charities and organizations near and dear to their hearts to donate to.
“We are elated to be able to give back to our wonderful community and state that has supported us through the years”. ~ Heather and Anthony Smith
How Does the Giveback Program Work?
Each month a new charity or organization from the Northland or MN/WI to receive a donation from Twin Ports Dermatology. Charities are selected by our team. Each month, a different team member is selected to choose who they wish to donate to. It’s important to get our staff involved because they contribute so much to our success.
How to Request a Donation?
Beyond our “Give Back” campaign, we also accept donation requests. We enjoy sponsoring the local events with raffle prizes. If you have an upcoming benefit or fundraiser, please email [email protected] Donation requests should be received at least one (1) month prior to the event.
Twin Port’s Give Back Charity Affiliates
- Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN)
For TPD’s Give Back Campaign this month, I chose the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN).
DSDN is the largest national organization supporting new and expectant parents with a Down syndrome diagnosis. Their mission is to connect, support and provide accurate information and education to parents and medical professionals.
Organizations like DSDN provide support to families in various ways like pregnancy care packages, access to resources in raising a child with Down syndrome, scholarships and adoption grants. DSDN provides opportunities for families to connect through different events. They also work with OB/GYNs and medical providers on how to deliver unexpected diagnoses by providing resources that are supportive and educational.
I chose this organization because I have a niece who has Down syndrome. A similar organization to DSDN has been huge in offering support to my brother and his family ever since they received Emily’s diagnosis prior to being born. Every September, our family walks with Emily at a “fun” raising walk to support and raise awareness.
Emily is almost 11 years old and doing amazing! She is so kind, silly and loving. She loves all kinds of sports and plays basketball, tennis, golf, swimming and hockey. She is her older brother’s (and his team) biggest fan when it comes hockey and has even been nicknamed “Emily (Herb) Brooks”. Emily is Rockin’ that extra chromosome and I am a proud Rockin’ auntie!
- Animal Allies
“I have had a dog my whole life. My parents always had dogs when I was growing up, and I have had a dog most of my adult life as well. I chose animal allies because I wish ALL animals had a loving home. They love you unconditionally, and they deserve the same. It breaks my heart and makes me angry to see neglected and abandoned animals. Thank you, Twin Ports Dermatology, for donating to this cause on my behalf.”
This month, Dr. Samuelson chose Life House Duluth for our Give Back Campaign because he would like all kids to be able to fulfill their potential no matter where they come from.
