LeapFish and Make-a-Wish Foundation Join Forces to Raise $10,000 and Tweet an Ill Child's Wish True

LeapFish and Make-a-Wish Foundation team up with Twitter users to grant an ill child’s dream to go to Disneyland

(PRWEB) November 16, 2009 -- LeapFish has joined forces with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to adopt an ill child’s dream and help make that dream come true. Tweet-a-Cause, a social media fundraising initative, will give Twitter users the power to grant an ill child’s dream to go to Disneyland, one Tweet at a time. LeapFish will donate 5 cents per Tweet to the Make-A-Wish Foundation until $10,000 has been raised and the child and his family can go to Disneyland.

Jacob, age 4, has a rare and life-threatening disease that has affected him since birth. He has one big wish in life –- to go to Disneyland with his family. LeapFish and the Make-a-Wish Foundation have joined forces to help him achieve his wish through Twitter. “We are privileged to be able to make a difference in young Jacob’s life by helping his dream come true,” said Ben Behrouzi, CEO of LeapFish. “What better tool than Twitter to get the community involved and allow everyone to share in making a difference for someone,” said Behrouzi.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation is the largest wish-granting organization in the world. The Foundation has granted wishes to more than 174,000 children with life-threatening medical conditions nationwide. Through the Adopt-a-Wish program, a donor, such as LeapFish, can cover the entire cost of a child’s wish. To raise awareness of the Adopt-a-Wish program and to help get the social media community involved in granting an ill child’s wish, LeapFish is sponsoring the Tweet-a-Cause and Make-a-Wish campaign.

The campaign will run from November 16 through November 27, 2009. LeapFish will match each Tweet with 5 cents to a target of $10,000 which will get Jacob and his family to Disneyland.
