pediped® became a national sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Foundation out of a desire to care for children beyond their feet and raised over $115,00 for this cause in 2008.
Coming Oct. 25 is a new pediped® fundraiser, Stars for a Wish, in which the company will auction more than 50 celebrity-autographed shoes with 100 percent of money raised to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Among the celebrities who have signed shoes for the auction are Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Courteney Cox, Faith Hill, Jerome Bettis and David Ortiz.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world, with 65 chapters in the United States and its territories. With the help of generous donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 180,000 wishes in the United States since its inception.
