ALIST, a charitable fundraising app, and Make-A-Wish, the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, has announced their launch of a new campaign, $10K for NC Wishes – geared towards granting wishes for local kids in the Wilmington community and surrounding areas.
Donations to $10K for NC Wishes will allow Make-A-Wish Eastern NC to help more children with life-threatening medical conditions experience the powerful, and oftentimes, life-changing impact of a wish come true.
Right now there are 350 children waiting for their one-true wish in the Wilmington area with an average cost of granting one child’s wish at $7,500.The $10K for NC Wishes campaign will run until June 19, 2018. Donations, and support, to the month-long campaign, through ALIST’s charitable app, will enter donors into a drawing to win prizes from 6 local businesses.
By donating any amount to the Make-A-Wish campaign on ALIST’s app, donors will be entered to win a Bald Head Island helicopter tour for two people from High Tide Helicopters and four tickets to Jungle Rapids water park.
The top donor of $10K for NC Wishes, through ALIST’s app, will win two tickets to see Tim McGraw and Faith Hill at the PNC Arena on June 22 from Sunrise Broadcasting and a three hour private charter for six people from Shamrock Sailing.
People who would like to support the campaign can also repost the campaign video on ALIST’s Facebook page for a chance to win a $50 gift card from Bluewater Waterfront Grill and Whole Foods.“We are incredibly proud of our coastal roots,” said Moria Rooney, CMO and co-founder of ALIST. “That’s why it’s so important for us to make an impact in the place that has helped shaped who we are. $10K for NC Wishes is just another opportunity to bring our Wilmington community together for a greater good.”
