Posted in Press Releases on October 1st, 2010

Holiday, FL- Acclaimed manufacturer Artsana USA, Inc. and freight company CSX exhibit outstanding generosity by helping bring joy to children and families in crisis across the county through national children’s charity, Kids Wish Network.   

Children recovering from illness or injury in hospitals and care facilities nationwide will soon be smiling, thanks to the exceptional generosity of Artsana USA, Inc., which donated 16 pallets loaded with hundreds of fabulous items such as baby strollers, car seats, high chairs and toys of all shapes and sizes. This amazing donation came to a retail value of approximately $25,000 dollars worth of merchandise that could not have come at a better time, as Kids Wish Network is gearing up for the rapidly approaching holiday season.

Artsana USA, Inc.’s donation will go a very long way in helping to ease the burdens that many families are facing. Children’s care facilities and hospitals all over the United States will be extremely excited to receive these desperately needed items, and Kids Wish Network simply cannot express enough thanks and gratitude to Artsana USA, Inc. for their magnificent donation.

However, even with the Artsana USA, Inc. donation, Kids Wish Network still needed to bring the pallets of games from California all the way back to their headquarters in Florida. This is where CSX worked their own special sort of “guardian angel magic.”

As they have helped Kids Wish Network many times in the past, CSX were more than excited to help, and needed only an address to pick up the donation from. Through CSX’s amazing “Keep on Moving” program, Artsana USA, Inc.’s donation was trucked all the way from Pennsylvania to Kids Wish Network’s Florida doorstep.

There is nothing like hearing a Child Life Specialist at a children’s hospital tell you about the new mothers with little of their own who are brought to tears of joy when they are presented with a new stroller for their baby from Artsana USA, Inc.; Kids Wish Network is overjoyed to facilitate these moments. 

We would not as efficiently have been able to make a difference in the life of these young people, were it not for caring organizations like Artsana USA, Inc. and CSX.  We offer our sincere thanks to these wonderful “Guardian Angels,” and others like them who help us to spread cheer year-round.

The amazing success of this Gift Bank program is due to the generosity of the donations of various toy and shipping companies. For all of Kids Wish Network’s “Guardian Angels” and any companies thinking of joining this elite group, Kids Wish Network is happy to announce that all donated items will be shipped via free freight.
