A Better Region 8: Thank you for making the power of a wish come true

A Better Region 8: Have a Heart Wish-A-Thon Thank You

(KAIT) -$374,556.43. That’s how much you gave to this year’s Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon for Make-A-Wish.

All the money raised will go to grant wishes for some very special and deserving children in Northeast Arkansas.

A special thank you to the volunteers who gave their time, some taking vacation days from work, to stand in the cold rain along the street with a bucket and ask for the change in your car.

A thank you to the young men and women who held fundraisers at their schools and helped Friday. Many of them have either seen a wish granted or know the money will go to help grant a wish to a fellow classmate.

Over the past 21 years, you’ve given over $6 million dollars to Make-A-Wish. It’s quite remarkable when you think about it.

From our Have A Heart partners at the Jonesboro Radio Group, and everyone here at KAIT, we say thank you for allowing us to serve this very special place we call Region Eight.
