Pediped Is Making Wishes Come True!

Pediped Footwear is committed to giving back to the community in spite of the current rocky economy. From Dec. 17-31, pediped™ will make a very rare offer on its Web site: For only the second time ever, pediped will reduce the price of select shoe styles and then donate 50 percent of the sales from these shoes to the Make-A-Wish Foundation! You can enjoy great savings and help a child's wish come true. Pediped partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation this year for the first time, and the collaboration has far surpassed expectations. So far, pediped has raised more than $87,000, enough to grant the wishes of 12 children with life-threatening medical conditions. Pediped Footwear scheduled four fundraising events this year, two with donation matching and two from which it donated 50 percent of the total sales from select shoes. Help them exceed their goal of $100K in donations! Visit for more information!

The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Founded in 1980 when a group of caring volunteers helped a young boy fulfill his dream of becoming a police officer, the Foundation is now the largest wish-granting charity in the world. With the help of generous donors and nearly 25,000 volunteers, the Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 40 minutes and has granted more than 171,000 wishes in the U.S. since inception.
