You could help local children's dreams come true. Lisa here to tell you about Make A Wish's fall fundraiser.


This November through December, Make A Wish is launching a campaign of awareness and inspiration called, "Season of Wishes Campaign." Make A Wish would not survive without the support of local business and individual donars, and this campaign is to help grow their donor base.

The idea is simple: They want to share with the public how much it means to a child when they get a wish granted, and they want to inspire Tampa Bay to help fund wishes. Their goal is to raise 60,000 dollars to grant nine more wishes in the Suncoast Regions. This includes children in Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Pinellas counties.

Now how are they going to do this you ask, it's simple. Make A Wish is going to use Tampa Bay Radio Stations and other media outlets to promote their cause locally. And they are going to continue the theme "Season of Wishes" nationally and use that for marketing and fund raising. Macy's is a corporate sponsor and a long time supporter of the Make A Wish foundation. Plus, it's easy for you to join in. You can donate, send festive e-cards, donate holiday gifts (which means you would get to go Shopping in Tampa Bay!) or go shopping for many of the Make A Wish holiday-themed products.

If you're looking for a great cause, look no further. Help the children in the Tampa Bay Area live out their dreams.
