The Dan Marino Foundation and Badia Spices are again partnering to launch an on-going awareness and fundraising campaign, “Be a Game Changer for those with Autism,” in support of those with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Starting August 2020, when consumers purchase a 1L or 33.8 FL OZ bottle of Badia Extra Virgin Olive Oil or 1L or 34 FL OZ bottle of Badia Extra Virgin Olive Oil Organic at any retailer in the United States where Badia Spices are sold, Badia will donate 5% of the proceeds from the sales to the Dan Marino Foundation. Badia Spices, Inc. is one of the fastest-growing family-owned Hispanic food companies. Badia manufactures, packages, and distributes spices, seasoning blends, marinades, sauces, teas, health items, and other products to more than 90 countries around the world. Through these annual fundraisers, to date, Badia Spices has raised over $800,000 for the Dan Marino Foundation.
Founded by Dan and Claire Marino shortly after their son, Michael’s, autism diagnosis in 1992, the Dan Marino Foundation has a long and distinguished history of life-changing programs and services, with the mission to “empower individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.” The Foundation has raised more than $84 million to create and support unique and impactful initiatives.
