~~Make A Wish & Pediped Footwear~~

Pediped™ to host special shoe promotion to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation!!!
Please everyone read this and help out if you can. You will be getting one heck of a deal and helping make a wish of a child come true!!! Please do whatever you can, it really does make a difference. Having lost my granddaughter to cancer and having many friends with gravely ill or handicapped children I can tell you first hand how WONDERFUL Make A Wish is!!! Please, please, please go on over and take a look. The shoes are wonderful, in fact I am going to be posting a review on a super cute pair later this week. I am going out on a limb here and if I can get 10 of my readers to buy a pair of shoes during this fund raiser I will personally do a drawing for a $100 prepaid Visa card. This means that much to me! And if you don't have kids to buy for you can always use mine ;-)

HENDERSON, Nev. (May 2009) — Beginning May 27 and running through June 10, pediped™ Footwear will host a Purchases with Purpose fundraiser to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. During this period, 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™ very rarely marks down the price of their shoes. In fact, this will mark the third time in the company’s five-year history that such an event will occur. The first two events also benefited the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“In these times, it's more important than ever to give back to the community and bring joy to children who need it. We hope people will go online to shop, and together we can all make a difference!” said pediped™ President Angela Edgeworth.

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. Information on current and upcoming fundraisers can be found on Lets help make this year even better!!
