Davison Supports CureSearch for Children’s Cancer in Honor of National Childhood Cancer Month


September participants in Davison’s “Find the Davison ‘D’ and You Could Win Money!” giveaway will help fund lifesaving research.

PITTSBURGH, PA. – Davison, a new product development firm that builds new product ideas for corporations and independent inventors, is pleased to announce that in honor of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the company is supporting CureSearch for Children’s Cancer through its “Find the ‘D’ and You Could Win Money!” giveaway. For each of the first 100 entries received in September, Davison has pledged to donate $10 to the organization, which funds the lifesaving research of the Children’s Oncology Group, the largest cooperative pediatric cancer research organization in the world

“They do truly invaluable work in the fight to cure childhood cancer,” said George Davison, founder and CEO. “We could not imagine a more worthy organization, and we are honored to support them through our giveaway this month.”

The Pittsburgh firm chose CureSearch for Children’s Cancer to receive the donation because of its support for the lifesaving research of the Children’s Oncology Group, medical professionals who treat more than 90% of children with cancer in the U.S., at more than 200 hospitals. Through the collaborative research supported and funded by CureSearch, COG has improved cure rates for children’s cancer at a pace much faster than any one individual or single institution could accomplish alone.

Davison launched its “Find the ‘D’ and You Could Win Money!” giveaway to celebrate the milestone of 150+ products and packaging solutions designed by Davison that have sold in over 500 different retail outlets.

Although headquartered near Pittsburgh, PA., products and packaging designed by Davison can be found in stores all across the country. The firm of 250 employees credits its success to George Davison’s unique method of building ideas into products that makes the process affordable for inventors, entrepreneurs and corporations.

“We have refined our method to the point that we are now able to transform the ideas of average people, as well as those of corporations, into actual products on the store shelves at a greater rate and consistency than any other company in our industry.”

The inventor and fourth-generation businessman is also becoming known as “the Henry Ford of inventing” because he brought the process of affordable inventing to the average person, just as Henry Ford made the automobile affordable to the masses.

“I find it extremely rewarding to be able to help the everyday idea person bring their idea for a new product to life, and then hear their reaction after they actually see it in packaging and on the store shelf,” Davison said. “There’s nothing more exciting.”

In its first three months, the “Find the ‘D’ and You Could Win Money!” giveaway has drawn entries from every region of the country. August’s winner, Domenic, from Morgantown, W.Va., was thrilled.

“That’s awesome!” Domenic exclaimed when he got the good news, which could not have come at a better time. The recent medical school graduate just started his residency and is also planning his wedding. He and his fiancée chose a $500 gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond as their prize.

Participants in the contest need only find a Davison-designed product or package in a store, take a photo of themselves with it, and send it in (no purchase necessary). The next winner will be drawn on Oct. 1.
