BounceU Raises Over $50,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation
BounceU, a franchise that specializes in creating private, full-service birthday parties for children in a safe, indoor environment, recently concluded a successful campaign to raise $50,000 to help Make-A-Wish fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. After a month-long campaign in May, BounceU executives and franchisees raised a grand total of $50,500, exceeding the original target.
All 51 BounceU locations in 19 states hosted ongoing events and promotions during the month of May to benefit Make-A-Wish. The campaign culminated with BounceU’s “Big, Big Bounce” event, held on May 22, where the public was invited to a special open bounce session with a donation of their choice.
The system-wide fundraiser was a first for BounceU, with each franchisee working towards an individual goal of raising $1,000. Company executives consider the campaign a success for not only reaching the monetary goal, but bringing the network of franchisees together for a common cause that aligned with their values.
“Throughout the entire campaign, it was incredibly gratifying knowing that while children were having fun at each of our facilities, we were simultaneously taking steps towards enhancing the lives of even more children,” said Lee Knowlton, CEO of BounceU. “We would not have been able to reach our goal if it wasn’t for the tremendous support we received from families and local communities across the country – so we thank everyone that helped.”
