During September, $1 from every Star Doughnut sold in-store and online will be donated to Make-A-Wish. Beyond this, Krispy Kreme doughnut-lovers can continue to support Make-A-Wish throughout the year, with Krispy Kreme also donating $6 from every dozen-pack sold online, and $1 from every co-branded enviro-bag sold in-store.
Krispy Kreme Australia CEO Andrew McGuigan said the company is delighted to combine the fun of Krispy Kreme with a charity such as Make-A-Wish Australia.
Make-A-Wish CEO Gerard Menses is very pleased to have Krispy Kreme’s support again in 2015.
“Krispy Kreme is a fantastic supporter of Make-A-Wish, and we’re thrilled to partner with them,” he said. “The money raised by the Star Doughnut initiative will help us grant even more wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
“We have an ambitious goal of granting 2,000 wishes per year within the next decade, so that every child in Australia battling serious illness can experience the healing power of a wish. The funds raised by Krispy Kreme customers will help us inch closer to that goal.”
This year, Krispy Kreme is dedicated to raising more than $100,000 for Make-A-Wish Australia, which grants the wishes of very sick kids and teenagers, giving them hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness, and joy from their incredible wish experience.
