Apple, Google, Microsoft - Who Will Do The DLD Challenge to Impact the Lives of 500,000 Students?12:00 PM
A new Dallas-based company is stepping out of their comfort zone to launch one of the biggest corporate challenges in history.
"Are we crazy to challenge the three biggest technology companies in the world? Yes, we are," Mala Brough, DLD co-founder, said. "Our passion to help students is greater than our craziness."
"There's only two ways to eat lunch in corporate America: eat alone or eat with the same co-workers. We've created a third way - eat lunch with random co-workers. We built a technology platform called ZinkUz, that connects people together within the boundaries of their organization. We call it Do Lunch Different," Brough said.
One of life's most valuable skills is networking and an entire generation is being raised on social media which can cause them to lose the art of turning a stranger into a friend.
High school DLD Challenges will encourage and reward students to be bold and courageous enough to eat lunch with random students.
The goal is to raise 1.5 million dollars to launch DLD Challenges in 200 high schools throughout the USA.
The first 50, 100, and 500 people to donate any amount to The DLD Challenge receive special donor gifts.
