DDIY is a non profit organization that was established in 2013. DDIY has a mission to help people in Houghton and Keweenaw Counties with financial hardship caused by medical hardship. The plan to accomplish this mission is to collaborate with other organizations in Houghton and Keweenaw County and to fund raise inside and outside the communities.

The plan to achieve this mission has been set by the board of DDIY consisting of 8 members of the community. The board has a clear vision of what DDIY will become. It will become an emergency funding source for the people of Houghton and Keweenaw County who are facing any kind of financial hardship due to medical hardship. Funds will be raised through solicitation and online donations. Volunteer efforts, community support, and donations through various planned efforts will be the long term plan for funding DDIY. We believe that DDIY will be duplicated in other counties as we grow and help people in Houghton and Keweenaw Counties.

The board is made up of volunteer efforts. No one is paid.

DDIY will be measured on its success by the community and the families it helps. The board believes that the community will embrace what DDIY’s mission is and through monetary and volunteer efforts DDIY will be able to help numerous families in Houghton and Keweenaw Counties.

The impact on lives that will be touched, through financial contributions to people in need, and the volunteers that help will have a priceless impact on the communities that we live in. These combined efforts will inevitably make DDIY’s mission stronger and known throughout Houghton and Keweenaw Counties and beyond.

With your support and financial contributions DDIY can help the people in the communities we live in.

“Thank you for your generous gift. It has helped me greatly with travel expenses to my medical appointment. If it wasn’t for DDIY I would not have been able to afford to go to my treatment.”

“DDIY Thank you so much for your help with gas and food costs so that I could afford to see my doctor. We could never have gone right now without your help. I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”

“Thank you for your generous gift. Pardon my not writing sooner. I just returned from 6 weeks at the Beacon House. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your DDIY. You are a kind and caring group.”

“DDIY Thank you for your help. Our family does not qualify for the low income help that is available for people in their time of need with medical tragedy. Your organization was the only one that could help to offset travel expenses for my medical appointments. My husband and I both work and we did not plan to get sick. Thank you for helping relieve some of the financial struggles that our family is facing.”
