pediped™ aims for $100K in donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation

pediped partnered this year with the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening diseases. Later this month, pediped is taking it a step further by doing a fundraiser in hopes of raising $100K in donations!  Definitely something to check out!!  Let’s help them reach their goal for the kids!

Here is more information about this fabulous pediped fundraiser:

pediped Footwear is committed to giving back to the community in spite of the current rocky economy. From Dec. 17-31, pediped™ will make a very rare offer on its Web site: For only the second time ever, pediped will reduce the price of select shoe styles and then donate 50 percent of the sales from these shoes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“We believe in the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the good work it does with children,” said Angela Edgeworth, pediped president. “We are blessed with healthy children and feel compelled to make a difference in these children’s lives. We initially pledged $50,000, but thanks to the generosity of our consumers, we are confident we can double that. We’ve reduced the price of our shoes, something we never do, as a way to give back to our consumers while benefiting this worthy charity. We hope everyone shares in the spirit of giving this season. Goodness knows people need it now more than ever. We should be thankful every day for what we have.”

pediped partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation this year for the first time, and the collaboration has far surpassed expectations, Edgeworth said. So far, pediped has raised more than $87,000, enough to grant the wishes of 12 children with life-threatening medical conditions. pediped Footwear scheduled four fundraising events this year, two with donation matching and two from which it donated 50 percent of the total sales from select shoes.
