THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE GETS ARTY FOR MAKE-A-WISH CAMPAIGN
The Learning Experience raised over $500,000 to grant wishes for Make-A-Wish children through a month-long, franchise-wide fundraising campaign in April.
During the fundraiser, called "Art for Wishes," preschoolers as young as three were learning a lifelong lesson in helping others while creating weekly art projects like flowerpots, superhero capes, and wish wind chimes. On April 29th's "World Wish Day," the anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of Make-A-Wish in 1980, the children's artwork was raffled off to donors.
The fundraiser was part of The Learning Experience’s monthly philanthropy curriculum teaching children the concepts of kindness, empathy, inclusion, and that it doesn't matter how big or small you are, it's the size of your heart that matters.
