It’s Kristi’s Wish to Make
Every Child’s Holiday
a Happy One!
You can be the star atop a child’s Christmas tree this season by participating in the Kristi Visocky Foundation’s Kristi’s Wish star-studded holiday campaign, November 2 – December 15. Anyone can be a secret Santa! Buy a star and grant a wish.
“This holiday season we hope to brighten things up and paint the town with stars,” says Bob Visocky, founder and Executive Director of the Kristi Visocky Memorial Foundation. “Kristi’s Wish is a warm and wonderful way to help provide gifts and support for children in need during the holidays.”
By purchasing and signing $1, $5 or more, Kristi’s Wish cards and displaying them in area Schrader’s Country Stores can support Kristi’s Wish, and put the merry back in Christmas for needy Colorado families.
Proceeds from Kristi’s Wish will be used to provide gifts and financial support for the children and families associated with four Colorado organizations: Crossroads Safe House, CASA, Child Safe and Boys and Girls Club.
The Kristi Visocky Foundation created the “Wish” program to assist local families facing various challenges. Bob Visocky talks about the plight of many area families, “We’re doing this to help people who are struggling to put their lives back together. For example, there’s ‘Susan’ who is staying at a safe house with her children after fleeing from their home with only the clothes on their back. Or ‘Joe,’ a victim of corporate downsizing, who is trying to just keep food on the table for his family, much less think about buying Christmas presents for his children.”
The Kristi Foundation is proud to partner with High Country Beverage and Schrader’s Country Stores to help promote Kristi’s Wish. For more information and/or to participate as a business or an individual, call Bob Visocky at 970-219-3297.
