yourpeoplemarket.com will from 28th January be supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK
Make-A-Wish has a very simple objective – to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses. The charity was founded in the UK in 1986 and since then has granted over 5,600 wishes.
There are over 20,000 children in the UK living with a life-threatening illness. Make-A-Wish believe that every one of them deserves to experience the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish – and they are truly magical.
A small and dedicated team of professional wishgranters works alongside hundreds of volunteers to turn these children’s wishes into reality. Whether a wish is to be a princess or a train driver for the day, own the latest TV or computer equipment, meet a favourite celebrity or just enjoy some special time away from home with their family, a wish come true brings so much to a child’s life and provides memories that last a lifetime for the whole family.
This year, around 1,000 children will turn to Make-A-Wish to have their special wish granted – the charity needs to raise over £5 million per year to continue granting these magical wishes.
Before launch, yourpeoplemarket.com will donate one pound for every single registration it receives (up to one thousand per month) and thereafter from every single placement that yourpeoplemarket.com transacts, we will donate a minimum of ten pounds with no upper limit to Make-A-Wish. We truly hope we can help them achieve their goals in 2010. Every placement made through yourpeoplemarket.com will make a difference.
