All proceeds from the sales of these pins benefit the Believe in Tomorrow Children’s Foundation, a hospital housing provider for the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, Maryland.  DCSWCC’s support will be directed toward military families with critically ill children at BIT’s “House on the Bay” in nearby Ocean City, Maryland.  For more information about Believe in Tomorrow, visit their website at http://www.believeintomorrow.org.
