 Since 2002, Don McNeill has been a committed volunteer to Success Won’t Wait. Don has donated countless hours sorting and repairing books, attending book drives, and driving large deliveries from Success Won’t Wait to Philadelphia, New York and even West Virginia.

But perhaps his greatest contribution to Success Won’t wait was his creation of an innovative partnership between the organization and his firm, McNeill Designs, in 2005.

It was then that Don and other McNeill Designs principles committed themselves to using the company’s success to help support important charitable causes.

Since 2005, McNeill Designs has donated a portion of sales of the language game You’ve Been Sentenced! to Success Won’t Wait. “Because You’ve been Sentenced! is inherently an educational game (as well as lots of fun), we wanted to partner with an well established organization that focused on reading and literacy as our beneficiary,” Don explains.

A portion of the sale of each You've been Sentenced! game goes to fund SWW and its literacy projects.

The partnership provides Success Won’t Wait with a budget to cover items and expenses that are not donated and allows us to expand our projects in scope and geography. Thanks to Don McNeill, his game You’ve been Sentenced! and all the member of the McNeill Designs team for helping us to fulfill our mission!
