If you’re looking for a fun and easy way to help your local Make-A-Wish Illinois, the Jeans for Wishes campaign could be the perfect opportunity. To raise money for Make-A-Wish Illinois, Jeans for Wishes asks schools, organizations, and companies to wear jeans during the week of March 17-21. Participants simply make a donation to the Jeans for Wishes fund in order to wear jeans for a designated amount of time. How easy is that?
Who Doesn’t Want To Wear Jeans To Work?
Jeans for Wishes is a fun opportunity for professionals, students, or organizations to wear jeans for a great cause. Since many places do not allow their employees or students to wear jeans every day, Jeans for Wishes is a fun and unique campaign that many companies in Illinois enjoy participating in.
To get involved, all you need to do is register your organization, choose a length of involvement, and set a fundraising goal. Encourage your group members, students, or co-workers to wear jeans for $5 per day, $20 per week, and $80 for the entire month, or more.
After registration, participants will receive a Jeans for Wishes Starter Kit which includes a Make-A-Wish banner, stickers, and promotional materials to help with fundraising. When you receive cash or check donations, you are asked to fill out a Jeans for Wishes Donation Form and send it back to Make-A-Wish Illinois. Your donations will help to make a difference in the life of an Illinois child!
If your company or organization is unable to wear jeans during the suggested week of March 17-21, choose a week that best fits your organization. Your company can join in on the fun even if jeans are already allowed at your workplace. However, Make-A-Wish Illinois provides other fundraising ideas that could encourage further donations, such as hat days, pajama days, or bake sales. Read more of their ideas here.
Have A Car To Donate? It Benefits Make-A-Wish Illinois
Even if your organization is participating in Jeans for Wishes, you can also participate in the ongoing Wheels For Wishes car donation program. Wheels For Wishes is a vehicle donation program benefiting Make-A-Wish Illinois. Wheels For Wishes turns your unwanted vehicle into a wish for a local child. Most makes and models of vehicles are accepted, and vehicles are picked up or towed away at absolutely no charge to you. Plus, it’s easy to donate! Cars, trucks, boats, campers – just give us a call at 1-877-351-9474 or fill out our donation form.
Jeans for Wishes is a fun and worthwhile campaign to get involved in, but if your company, school, or organization is unable to participate, consider donating that car you no longer want or need. Your donation benefits Make-A-Wish Illinois and helps to grant the wish of a child with a life-threatening medical condition.
