Two Local Charitable Foundations Score a “Touchdown” with Kids Wish Network

Posted in Press Releases on February 13th, 2009

Holiday, FL –Kids Wish Network, a nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization that serves thousands of sick children nationwide, has joined forces with two outstanding local charitable foundations to lend a helping hand to kids in Florida.

 

 

Kids Wish Network works to make the lives of sick kids a little bit happier through a very unique Gift Bank program, which brings joy to children at many different child care facilities across the United States. This is achieved through the giving of beautiful toys and games that are donated by many manufacturers nationwide. Once received by Kids Wish Network, these gifts are distributed directly to the facilities and into the hands of thousands of children and teens.

 

 

This month, Kids Wish Network teamed up with two Tampa foundations –Derrick Brooks Charities and the Warrick Dunn Foundation – to enrich the lives of local children. Derrick Brooks Charities are dedicated to providing educational opportunities for socio-economically challenged youth that will instill, inspire, broaden, and develop cultural and social vision outside of the walls in which they live to ensure that these young people have every chance to develop into the strong and productive leaders of tomorrow. The Warrick Dunn Foundation is dedicated to providing opportunities for economically disadvantaged single parents and children who have demonstrated a commitment to achieve financial independence and stability.

 

 

Both of the charitable foundations do such wonderful work locally that Kids Wish Network was more than pleased to provide each program with approximately $40,000 worth of toys and gifts to give out to the children who benefit from their programs. The Executive Directors from both Derrick Brooks Charities and the Warrick Dunn Foundation even stopped by Kids Wish Network headquarters to take a look at the operation.

 

 

For underprivileged kids, the Warrick Dunn Foundation and the Derrick Brooks Charities are some of the top local foundations. They do outstanding work in the community and Kids Wish Network could not be happier to share their “Guardian Angel” magic with both charities.

Fameabilia Opens their “Treasure Box” for Kids Wish Network

Posted in Press Releases on February 6th, 2009

Holiday, FL- New Jersey memorabilia company, Fameabilia closes their doors and donates some of their outstanding collectibles to Kids Wish Network in Florida.

 

Every child has a hero; sometimes it’s a movie star, sometimes it’s a sports star. With the generous donations of New Jersey collectible dealer, Fameabilia, the children helped by Kids Wish Network have been given the chance to have a little bit of their heroes for their very own.

 

At the same time as they were closing their doors for retirement, Fameabilia owners were packing 50 “treasure” boxes full of wonderful sports memorabilia – baseball, football, basketball, and soccer items including helmets, jerseys, caps, balls, and photos; mostly all autographed. They even included posters, prints, figurines, books, games, watches and puzzles related to famous sports, movie and music figures that would spark the interest of any starry-eyed child.

 

The autographed trunks and gloves of Larry Holmes, the autographed helmet of Miami Dolphin quarterback, Chad Pennington, and the autographed photo of famous Notre Dame walk-on, Rudy Ruettiger are only three examples of the awe-inspiring collectibles donated. All together, Fameabilia gave Kids Wish Network over $80,000 worth of memorabilia just in this one donation alone! You see, they have been donating their “goodies” to Kids Wish Network since 2005!

 

Kids Wish Network is a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to infusing hope, creating happy memories, and improving the quality of life for children. Two of their programs, both the Wishes program and the Gift Bank program, provide children with various toys and goodies to help alleviate the fear and pain of being in and out of children’s care facilities. When a child with a life-threatening illness is granted a wish, a special box is created just for them that is filled to the brim with items picked out especially for them. As for the Gift Banks, boxes are packed full of age appropriate toys to be given out at child care facilities such as hospitals, rehabilitation centers and homeless shelters.

 

Since 2005, Fameabilia has supplied Kids Wish Network with enough collectible sports, movie and music paraphernalia to provide for thousands of kids! Their final donation was truly a treasure and with a “Guardian Angel” like Fameabilia, Kids Wish Network can only thank their “lucky stars.”
