Vancouver, Canada --(PR.com)-- The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.
In the spirit of holiday giving, Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company Ltd. is offering each of their customers the opportunity to donate $2.00 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of BC & Yukon as they line up to order their favorite Blenz beverages and treats. "Would you like to donate $2.00 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation today?" It's a simple question; and with each positive response, one child's wish is that much closer to coming true.
"Blenz Coffee is very proud to be able to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It really warms the heart to know that, just by including this simple question in our conversation with each of our customers, we may be able help a child's wish come true," says George Moen, president of Blenz Coffee. "Our store staff members are really excited to be a part of this campaign. We'll all be watching as the contributions grow. We have learned that it takes about $6,000 to grant one child's wish. By supporting the campaign with in-store signage and profiles on the Blenz Media Network, we hope to generate excitement with our customers, who will be as touched as we are to know that each $2.00 contribution helps toward granting someone's child a very special wish."
