Make-A-Wish Mid-South is working hard to reach their holiday goal, which will grant the wishes of 100 children over the holiday season. Their “Season of Wishes” campaign goes from December 10th-December 14th, so learn what you can do to help in your community while helping Make-A-Wish Mid-South make their goal!
You Can Help
There are a few ways that you can help make wishes come true during the holiday season. One huge way to help out is through car donation. When you donate an old car to Wheels For Wishes, we will turn your old set of wheels into a wish for a local child. Your old car, truck, motorcycle, SUV, RV or boat can go so far when it comes to granting wishes for a child. Your donation will make a difference!
Buy A Star To Light The Tree
If you don’t have a vehicle to donate during this holiday season, there are still plenty of ways that you can make a difference in the life of a child.
When you purchase a Wish Star, you can help make a child’s wildest wishes come true. Wish stars go for as low as $5, and range from $20, $100, $250, and $500. Your donation can help a child receive their dream destination, and each Wish Star donation helps every step of the way.
A $5 star can provide a child with a sparkling tiara or an activity book to keep a child occupied during their flight to a dream destination. A $20 star can provide a child with a souvenir or a photo album to capture a lifetime of memories of their dream trip. A $100 star can buy a child a new suitcase, and $250 can provide a child with tickets to meet their favorite athlete. A $500 Wish Star can provide a child with a plane ticket to their dream location!
However you choose to help out, you can make a huge difference in the life of a child!
Purchase Your Wish Star
To purchase a Wish Star, you can call, send a check or credit card via mail, make an online donation, or stop by Make-A-Wish Mid-South’s Wish Week Celebration between 7am and 6pm on December 10th through the 14th. For more information on how to purchase your Wish Star, please visit http://midsouth.wish.org/2012-season-of-wishes/get-your-wish-star/.
Another great part about the Season of Wishes is that whenever stars are purchased, lights will be lit on the Make-A-Wish tree. Stars will be sold until the tree is filled with lights, so drive by and check out their progress whenever you can!
The Season of Wishes
There are even more ways in which you can participate during Make-A-Wish Mid South’s Season of Wishes. From December 10th through the 14th and from 7-9am, stop by the Shops of Saddle Creek and make your drive-up donation while getting a breakfast from Chick-fil-A! On December 14th from 3-6pm, don’t miss out on the Season of Wishes Finale at the Shops of Saddle Creek, while enjoying fun, food, and music as the lighting of the Wish Tree is celebrated!
However you decide to help, you will feel great about contributing to such a great cause in your own community. You can help make the holiday season a Season of Wishes!
