This holiday season, supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America will be as easy as pie, as the non-profit organization has announced a partnership with WiseChoice Foods, the manufacturer of the frozen pizza brand WisePies Pizza to help fund more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses through the sales of specially created dessert pizzas exclusively available at Walmart stores across the United States.
The WishPie by WisePies Pizza is a Cinnamon Apple Drizzle Dessert Pizza featuring a stone-fired, cinnamon-infused traditional crust topped with cinnamon-sugar sauce and diced gala apples. A vanilla icing packet is also included. It will be available exclusively for $6.98 at Walmart stores throughout the USA for a limited time. One dollar from each unit sold between November 1 and December 24 will go to Make-A-Wish to grant wishes that can help children build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight critical illnesses.
“We hope WishPies become a new favorite holiday tradition for families across the United States,” said Richard K. Davis, president and chief executive officer of Make-A-Wish America. “Partnerships like the one with WisePies allow families to deliver hope and healing to wish kids and their families during the holiday season in an accessible and fun way.”
“WisePies Pizza is humbled and honored to offer a limited-edition dessert pizza supporting the Make-A-Wish efforts to grant more wishes to children experiencing critical illness. We encourage healthy and wise lifestyle choices through our clean-label promise for all WisePies products and our community initiatives,” said Season Chavez, president of the Albuquerque, New Mexico-based company.
He added: “My brother was granted a wish when he was 12-years old while fighting a rare form of cancer. I know firsthand the positive emotional and physical impact a wish can have on a child and their entire support system including family, friends and their medical team. The creation and sale of the limited edition WishPies is a way this partnership can collectively give back to the community.”
