"DEMDACO has always been dedicated to lifting the spirits in consumers," said Dave Kiersznowski, CEO of DEMDACO. "As we look to further our purpose pursuing business as a human endeavor, it was an easy decision to bring a little comfort, a little safe and a little brave to children going through trying times. Childhood health, care, research and innovation are vital to transforming the lives of young people around the world today, and we couldn't think of a more worthy organization to join forces with than Children's Mercy."
