PORTLAND, Maine — Make-A-Wish Maine is encouraging consumers to go to their local Walmart from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting this Saturday, Sept. 22, to show their support for Make-A-Wish by taking part in a brief demonstration of a Straight Talk Wireless Android smart phone.
For every shopper who participates, Straight Talk Wireless will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, with the ultimate goal of raising $1,000,000.
Carried out under the banner “One Minute One Million,” the event will be held four consecutive Saturday at 21 participating Walmarts in such cities and towns as Bangor, Brunswick, Presque Isle, and Auburn across the Make-A-Wish Maine region. The funds contributed by Straight Talk Wireless will help grant wishes in Make-A-Wish Maine communities and other cities and towns across the country.
