Give a Minute, Help Make-A-Wish

One of my favorite sessions of EVO '11 was the presentation from the Make-A-Wish foundation.


After the Make-A-Wish representatives were done sharing stories of sick children making wishes, and having them granted, there wasn't a dry eye in the room. Actually, it was a little bit worse: we ran out of napkins because the whole room was sobbing, looking for anything to mop up the tears gushing from their eyes. I will do anything to help Make-A-Wish and their kids, and I bet you would, too.

Now you can help! Every Saturday in September, Straight Talk Wireless will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for each person who visits their participating local Walmart and takes a minute to learn about Straight Talk. Chances are, you're going to be in a Walmart at some point in the next couple weeks; you can do this. For their part, Straight Talk is going to donate a minimum of $500,000 to Make-A-Wish, and up to $1,000,000.
