Jeans For Wishes

September 27th-October 31st, 2010
Jeans for Wishes is a charitable campaign and fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Nebraska.

Companies, Organizations and Schools will join together to wear jeans or their favorite sports jersey to raise funds to grant wishes for children in Nebraska with life-threatening medical conditions.

How will Jeans for Wishes work?

There are many flexible participation options for Jeans for Wishes. They may either allow employees or students to wear jeans and/or sports jerseys on one day during the Jeans for Wishes timeframe with a suggested $5 donation per person ($1.00 -$5.00 for students); or, they may allow employees or students to wear jeans or sports jerseys for the entire week with a $20 donation per person.

***A different date or timeframe may be chosen to accommodate a school or company’s needs.

Support a Wish Child

Employees & Students can read on our website about the wish children whose wishes will be granted from funds raised through the Jeans for Wishes Campaign. We are encouraging participants who wear jeans to email an encouraging note to these special children and Make-A-Wish will give these notes to the children before their wish.

How to Begin

Businesses and organizations interested in participating can email jeansforwishes@nebraska.wish.org to request a Jeans for Wishes Starter Kit which includes a Make-A-Wish Banner, promotional materials and stickers to be given to individuals wearing jeans or sports jerseys.

For any questions about the Jeans for Wishes Campaign, please call Angela Kros at 402-333-8999 or 800-760-WISH or email jeansforwishes@nebraska.wish.org

Based on the level of participation from your employees and company, you could receive recognition in the Make-AWish Foundation of Nebraska e-newsletter and website. If your company raises over $7,500 you will have funded a complete wish and would receive a WishMaker plaque to display proudly at your place of business
