Krispy Kreme is joining forces with doughnut-loving fans and Make-A-Wish supporters, to raise as much money as possible for the children’s charity.
During September, $1 from every Star Doughnut sold in store and online will be donated to Make-A-Wish. Beyond this, Krispy Kreme doughnut-lovers can continue to support Make-A-Wish throughout the year, with Krispy Kreme also donating $6 from every dozen pack sold online, and $1 from every co-branded enviro-bag sold in store.
Krispy Kreme Australia’s CEO, Andrew McGuigan, said the company is delighted to combine the fun of Krispy Kreme with a cause like Make-A-Wish Australia.
“We’re really proud and excited to be supporting Make-A-Wish. Giving back to the community is part of our global mission. A charity partner like Make-A-Wish really inspires us to do more, give more, and gets all our team at Krispy Kreme involved in helping seriously ill children,” said Mr McGuigan.
Make-A-Wish CEO Gerard Menses is very pleased to have Krispy Kreme’s support again in 2015.
“Krispy Kreme is a fantastic supporter of Make-A-Wish, and we’re thrilled to partner with them. The money raised by the Star Doughnut initiative will help us grant even more wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
“We have an ambitious goal of granting 2000 wishes per year within the next decade, so that every child in Australia battling serious illness can experience the healing power of a wish. The funds raised by Krispy Kreme customers will help us inch closer to that goal,” he said.
This year, Krispy Kreme is dedicated to raising over $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Australia. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of very sick kids and teenagers, giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
