Beginning May 27 and running through June 10, pediped™ Footwear will host a Purchases with Purpose fundraiser to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. During this period, select styles of both Originals and Flex shoes will be marked down. Fifty percent of sales from this fundraiser will be donated to the charity to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
pediped™ very rarely marks down the price of their shoes. In fact, this will mark the third time in the company’s five-year history that such an event will occur. The first two events also benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“In these times, it’s more important than ever to give back to the community and bring joy to children who need it. We hope people will go online to shop, and together we can all make a difference!” said pediped™ President Angela Edgeworth.
pediped™ will host several different fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. In 2008, the company raised more than $111,000 to help grant 15 wishes and has aspirations of surpassing that figure in 2009.
