Things Remembered Holiday, Things Remembered and Make-A-Wish Foundation
This partnership began in 1997 with the wish of a girl named Elysia who wanted to give friends and family personalized gifts to remember her by. It grew into the creation of a line of Make-A-Wish products that generate donations when purchased: a keepsake box, an ornament and a musical snow globe.
For Holiday 2003, Things Remembered prominently featured the items in catalogs and other advertising materials, developed a new customer donation program and implemented a National Make A Wish Day promotion in its 700 stores. Together these efforts generated over $500,000 for Make A Wish in 2003.
