Help Make a Wish Come True

You guys, I have something really cool I want to share with you: As part of a sponsored campaign with the One2One Network, I get to tell you about a super easy way you can help raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Many of you know that I am a childhood cancer survivor. When I was being treated, I was lucky enough for an organization based in Arkansas with a mission similar to that of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to grant me a super cool wish: I got tickets to a meet and greet at a New Kids on the Block concert. OK, now maybe that doesn’t sound so cool, but in 1990? That was like whoa. And it was a great boost to my mood as my hair actually started falling out due to the chemo treatments that very same week.

Now wouldn’t you like to be part of a campaign that makes granting wishes like that possible?

All you need to do is go to Walmart. (I mean, you do that anyway right?) But I need you to do it on a Saturday in September and go learn about Straight Talk Wireless*. Every Saturday in September, Straight Talk Wireless will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for each person that visits their participating local Walmart and takes a minute to learn more about Straight Talk. You can totally do that.

What’s that you say? You want to do more? Great! From now until September 28th, when you share the video on, Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $100,000 towards their total goal of $1,000,000 for the campaign.

So watch the video — well, grab a tissue and then watch the video — and then share it, friends! It takes only a minute and it will make a difference in the life a child battling a life threatening illness… and to those who love that child.

*Straight Talk partners with existing wireless networks nationwide to provide no-contract wireless phone service. Straight Talk is available exclusively at Walmart and the cost savings of not having to maintain stores is passed directly on to the customers.
