Desperately Seeking Products for Sick Teens!

Posted in Press Releases on April 24th, 2009

Holiday, FL –Kids Wish Network, a nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization that serves sick children is desperate for your help! We work hard each and every day to bring joy to some very courageous kids through our wish granting services and our gift giving programs. In order to do this, we rely on the generosity of toy manufacturers and companies nationwide to donate their products to be given to these children. Nothing brings a smile to a child’s face more quickly than receiving a brand new toy or game!

 

Sadly, our teenagers are often neglected in our efforts! It is extremely challenging for us to garner donations geared towards kids between the ages of 12 and 18! We do our best to fill our wish boxes and to stock teen rooms at hospitals and children’s care facilities across the country with items appealing to teens, but it is very difficult as we are seriously lacking items for them. As everyone knows, teenagers are very gadget oriented! 

 

At this time, we are desperately seeking any of the following items for our teens: electronic hand held games, video games for all game systems, DVD’s for older kids, listening devices including ipods and MP3 players and books for teens.  

 

If your company manufactures or distributes any of these products, please contact Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center. Any help would be tremendously appreciated!  Kids Wish Network will gladly pay for shipping within the continental U.S. 

 

Please join Kids Wish Network’s family of “Guardian Angels’! Together, we can all make a difference in the lives of some very special and courageous kids!

Kids Wish Network Brightens the Future for many Local Children’s Facilities

Posted in Press Releases on April 17th, 2009

Holiday, FL – As charities around them were closing their doors due to the difficulty of the economic climate, nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization Kids Wish Network and their band of “Guardian Angels” began working towards helping local facilities through their unique Gift Bank program.
Kids Wish Network’s Gift Bank program is designed to bring joy to children at facilities such as hospitals, homeless shelters and many different specialized programs through the use of brand new donated toys, games and electronics from many of the top manufacturers nationwide. Once received by Kids Wish Network, these amazing items are distributed directly to the facilities and into the hands of thousands of children and teens. In other words, Kids Wish Network helps them to help the kids!

With our country’s ongoing economic struggle, it is becoming more and more difficult for people to give, causing a chain reaction that is severely crippling charitable institutions nationwide. Here in Florida, the situation is no different. With such an increased need in the local communities, Holiday-based organization, Kids Wish Network, is ready for the immediate distribution of their donations. While constantly adding to their ongoing list of facilities that serve the homeless, abused, disadvantaged, underprivileged children, Kids Wish Network looks only to help the children affected by such terrible times.
Seeing that hundreds of local child care programs, shelters and facilities were struggling in this difficult economic climate, Kids Wish Network stepped forward and saw to it that approximately $90,000 worth of fantastic toys, games and other items were distributed between facilities located throughout Pasco, Pinellas, Citrus, Hernando and Hillsborough counties.

These recipients accepted their Gift Banks with great enthusiasm; they were both shocked and greatly surprised to receive such large amounts of high quality merchandise. According to one local program director, there were “Surprises in every carton…that’s what we experienced when we began opening the boxes from the Kids Wish Network…Our excitement at having gifts was delightful…Your generosity is heartwarming.” The folks of Kids Wish Network are only too happy to have made a difference and will continue to try and meet the needs of their community, as well as continuing on their nationwide mission.

Megatrux, Inc.: A True “Guardian Angel”

Posted in Press Releases on April 3rd, 2009

Holiday, FL- Courageous children all over the country are smiling thanks to Megatrux, Inc. and Kids Wish Network.

 

Kids Wish Network, a nationally recognized 501 (c) 3 organization, dedicated to improving the qualify of life for children, would like to extend its warmest appreciation to Megatrux, Inc., one of the country’s largest privately owned transportation, shipping & warehousing networks, for donating their services to help bring joy to hundreds of children across seven states.

 

Karen Pelle, President of Megatrux, has been instrumental in organizing her company’s efforts to help deliver the toys. They typically deliver between $20,000 and $60,000 worth of goodies to each facility. And not only do they deliver the toys, they also pick up toys from toy companies across the country and bring them to Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center in Florida where they are processed, bagged and sent out to the children – courtesy of course, of Megatrux.

 

Kids Wish Network had been given approximately $160,000 worth of brand new, top of the line toys to distribute to kids through their unique Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program, an uplifting program that brings cheer to children admitted to the hospital for treatment. The donated toys are placed in pediatric care facilities all across America and are given to the children when they arrive for treatment. These precious treasures go a long way in easing the fears and anxieties these brave little warriors associate with medical care.

 

Because of Megatrux’s generosity, these amazing items were shipped last week alone to children’s care facilities in Kansas, Oregon, Missouri, Texas, Utah, Arizona and California quickly and efficiently. Without Megatrux, Inc., there would be a lot less joy in these states. For this, Kids Wish Network would like to extend their sincerest thanks to Megatrux, Inc., their “Guardian Angel.”

 

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. If you know a child between the ages of 3 and 18 who may be in need of its wish granting services, please call 727-937-3600 or toll free 888-918-9004.
