Doesn’t it feel good to rise above and surprise someone with how much you can achieve? We’re already into the second year of our alliance, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation® continues to be pleasantly surprised and impressed with Creative Memories’ dedication to helping make wishes come true. Did you know that, in calendar year 2009, we committed to a minimum contribution of $250,000? But with the combined efforts of our fantastic Consultants and caring customers, we were able to exceed expectations, contributing more than $400,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!
(SPOILER ALERT: Watch for a whole new batch of products inspired by the Make-A-Wish Foundation coming soon! For every product purchased in the new wish-inspired product line, Creative Memories will make a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.)
A few days ago we had a visit from Barb Koch with the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Minnesota. The sole reason for her visit was to say “thanks” on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Barb wanted to let us know how much the Foundation appreciates what all of us do and how grateful they are for the results. She even brought us a beautiful, framed plaque recognizing Creative Memories as “wish granters.” We’ve got it on display already here in the Home Office. If you’re ever here for a visit you should take a look!
On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and all the families they serve, thank you for all you do to help bring hope, strength and joy to wish kids.
Nice job everyone!
