Disclosure: I participated in this Straight Talk campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions are my own, I was compensated for my time.
It’s safe to say that we all want to help make a difference for someone in a troublesome situation. As a parents we want to show our children how important it is to give back and help those in need, how do you do that if you don’t have much time in your day? Straight Talk Wireless is giving you the chance to just take a minute out of your day to help Make-A-Wish.
Throughout my life I have been lucky enough to be surrounded my great examples of family members that give back. My grandmother always had specific charities that she would donate to each year, my mother and I would donate change when we came out of stores and my father and stepmother donate food several times a year. I truly believe that these examples in my life helped me realize how important it is to teach my own son.
Even though he does not grasp the concept yet, I still let him participate in donating money to jars or buckets, picking out specific items in stores that donate a portion to charities and to help fill bags with food we’re not going to use. When I see the faces of families and children on charity flyers that benefited from the help or need it, I can’t help but look at my own son and realize how much I would want others giving to help us if we were in the need.
Now Straight Talk is helping to Make-A-Wish come true for several in need, but they need your help. Each Saturday in September you can visit your local Walmart and take a few minutes out of your time to learn about Straight Talk Wireless. For each person that does this Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, now that’s amazing. At a minimum they will donate $500,000 and up to $1,000,000 can be earned!
Now Straight Talk has realized that not everyone actually does live near a Walmart, I know hard for me to believe too but it’s true. Starting now until September 28th you can share the video on straighttalkwish.com and Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for each share(one donation per viewer, per day), up to $100,000 towards their $1,000,000 goal. The internet is a powerful place where people share their lives (like me), funny videos and can shop non-stop. As my readers I hope that each of you can take the time out of your day to at least share this video if you do not have a Walmart close to visit.
This is the second year in a row that Straight Talk is participating and hosting this wonderful event. Can you imagine the impact you can make with just a few minutes of your time? My family believes that it is important to help these sick children and their families. Will you join Straight Talk and us to help Make-A-Wish?
