Make a wish and Purchase for Purpose
pediped™ Footwear are hosting Purchases with Purpose fundraiser to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation (May 27 until June 10). During this time 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™ 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. Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfil his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world.
