Astonish Announces its Make-A-Wish Pledge Drive for December

By Newswire | December 3, 2012

Warwick, RI, 12/03/12 – Astonish, a leading digital marketing solutions and sales training provider for insurance agencies, today announced its annual Make-A-Wish pledge drive for December. During the month, it will donate $1,000 to Make-A-Wish of Central and Northern Florida for every new customer acquired.

The company will also encourage its clients to donate by downloading and filling out a special pledge card in the Virtual Profit Center because it’s never too early to start giving by granting the wish of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Last year, Astonish and friends of Astonish were able to grant the wish of a four-year-old named Matthew who wanted to redecorate his room into a Disney’s Cars-themed room. Matthew experienced pure joy when seeing not only his walls and bed decorated in the new theme, but also new toys, clothes, and even a cake with the Cars theme.

The company also granted the wish of a 16-year-old named David who wished to visit Zion National Park in Utah. David battles a life-threatening blood disorder therefore often had to forgo outdoor adventures. Traveling to the beautiful canyons and hiking some trials in the Utah Park uplifted David’s spirits. Stories like these make Astonish proud to be part of such an initiative.

This holiday season the company encourages clients and all members of the public to donate other items often wished by children with life-threatening diseases, including LEGOs, movies, gift cards, markers, and more. To see a complete list of acceptable items go here.
