This week, Trusted Choice® is proud to kick off its seventh annual social media campaign to raise money for Make-A-Wish®. During the month of August, Trusted Choice will donate $10 to the wish-granting organization for each post you share from the Trusted Choice® Facebook page.
"Trusted Choice is proud to continue using Facebook in such a wonderful effort to raise money and awareness for Make-A-Wish," says Kevin Brandt, Trusted Choice executive director.
Since the first campaign in 2011, Trusted Choice has sponsored wishes for 54 children with life-threatening medical conditions. Before the end of this year, it will also provide 55 grants through a local sponsorship initiative, totaling $412,000 for Make-A-Wish chapters.
This month, Trusted Choice is committed to donating a minimum of $100,000 and a maximum of $150,000 with this year's campaign. Past campaigns have raised more than $920,000, while the local grant sponsorships have raised an additional $2.1 million. Collectively, Trusted Choice has donated more than $3 million to Make-A-Wish since 2011.
"Trusted Choice and the Big 'I' are honored to continue our relationship with Make-A-Wish," says Robert Rusbuldt, Trusted Choice president and Big "I" president & CEO. "Make-A-Wish is there for wish kids and their families during their most difficult times. This annual project is an important opportunity for our entire membership to join forces for a very worthy, national cause."
"Trusted Choice independent insurance agents and brokers have a strong track record of active participation and charitable giving in their communities," Rusbuldt adds. "This wonderful project for Make-A-Wish is a key, unifying component."
