The Sun letter to the editor: Help Cans for Kids grant children their wishes, one can at a time

At Cans For Kids, our goal is to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Foundation.

Founded by Ryan Preziosi of Hamburg, Cord Polzin of Eden, Ridge Putzbach of Angola and Matt Richter of Buffalo, we collectively all want to help and have an impact on children who have been diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition.

It is very sad and disheartening to see a young child suffer from a major medical condition such as cancer, and that is why we want to help contribute to Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The founders of Cans For Kids plan to raise money for these children by collecting cans and bottles and recycling them. All of the proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish.

We plan to have a primary target market of close family and friends. We believe that they will be happy to help raise money for children and will help out up until mid-April.

Our secondary target market is going to small and local businesses in our area. Since we are a local foundation, we believe that local businesses would like to help us raise money, as well.

As a group, Cans For Kids expects to raise a minimum of $200, or $50 per individual. Throughout the months of February, March and mid-April, we will be collecting cans and bottles whenever we can. We plan on spending at least one hour per week, to collect cans and bottles.

We are not going to have one single event to help raise money, but an ongoing benefit that collects money throughout the few months we are established. As a way of marketing, we are going to focus on social networking through Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram. It is free, and many of our friends and family members will be able to hear about our foundation and learn more about Cans For Kids.

The founders of Cans For Kids genuinely want to help children and raise money for Make-A-Wish Foundation. Giving a child diagnosed with a life-threatening disease their wish brings us tremendous happiness. Knowing that we can help this happen, we are very excited to start Cans For Kids.

“Granting kids their wish one can at a time.” Every can counts and we will go above and beyond to raise money for Make-A-Wish, because we know that a single wish can have an immense impact on a child’s life.

A “wish come true” helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions.

For many, the wish marks a turning point in the fight against their illnesses. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say the wish experience works in concert with medicine, to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. That is why wishes matter, and that is why Cans For Kids is motivated to raise as much money as possible, one can at a time.
