HONOLULU COOKIE COMPANY DONATES $25,000 TO GIVE WISHES WINGS
FOR THE CHILDREN OF MAKE-A-WISH HAWAII
Expands last year’s corporate donor and wish granting partnership
June 21, 2016 (HONOLULU, HI) – Honolulu Cookie Company is proud to have the opportunity to give back to the community with a $25,000 donation to the Give Wishes Wings summer campaign to grant wishes for the children of Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
This June through August, the Give Wishes Wings campaign invites all members of the island community to help grant the wishes of children in Hawaii who are battling life-threatening medical conditions and give hope to families when they need it most. All funds raised for Make-A-Wish Hawaii stay in Hawaii to help grant the wishes of local children. Approximately 120 kids in Hawaii are diagnosed with serious illnesses each year, and it is the vision of Make-A-Wish Hawaii to grant the wish of every eligible child. All wishes are privately funded through local businesses and individual donors.
Last year, in addition to being a corporate donor, Honolulu Cookie Company was also honored to give the gift of joy to two wish children and their families during the holiday season, providing a grand-themed “Winter Wonderland” bakery experience and also surprised one of them with her wish come true: an all-expense paid trip to Walt Disney World.
“Our whole team is so touched and thankful that we are able to make a small difference for these keiki and their families who’ve had to endure so much,” said Randy Yeager, President of Honolulu Cookie Company. “We will continue to expand our partnership with Make-A-Wish Hawaii and support the positive impact that they have on our community.”
