TAYLOR'S GIFT!

Come help touch people's lives everyday!

Taylor’s Gift has been spreading the word in dozens of fundraisers around Texas as well as in other states and cities. With Taylor Storch touching so many people’s lives and living in Coppell, many Coppell residents help and volunteer at various events and Coppell clubs and organizations, such as TLC and the Sidekick, also try and help fundraise for this great non-profit organization. However, the Taylor’s Gift Organization is not only limited to the help of Coppell residents. Recently Todd and Tara Storch were featured in People’s Magazine in the January 2013 issue. This proves that the story of Taylor’s gift has gone national.

The Holes


  • Taylor’s Gift events in are not advertised well enough to the public because its main source of advertising is through social media.
  • Senior citizens especially need to be thinking about becoming organ donors, but most do not have access to social media.
  • Taylor’s Gift needs to find a way to reach out to the senior citizens and some of the public who do not use social media in order to raise awareness to all demographics across the nation.
