Monetary and in-kind donations help make dreams come true for children with life-threatening conditions
ATLANTA – Paradies Lagardère, the North American travel retail and restaurateur leader, is proud to announce that it’s given more than $65,000 to the Make-A-Wish® Foundation, supporting operations in both the U.S. and Canada.
The company has been a Platinum partner of Make-A-Wish® Canada since 2004, and has long worked with the overall organization to help grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions across North America through a variety of initiatives:
- World Wish Day is an annual two-week in-store fundraising campaign held in April.
- The Holiday Campaign – Season of Wishes – is a five-week in-store fundraising campaign that starts in December and runs into January.
- Each year, we donate 1 percent of our total December 24 sales to Make-A-Wish.
“Paradies Lagardère is proud to support Make-A-Wish,” said Gregg Paradies, president and CEO of Paradies Lagardère. “Being able to assist in bringing hope, strength and joy to these brave children and their families facing challenging medical conditions means so much to the entire organization, and is the least we can do to support those in our communities.”
