Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
HomeFirst™ Certified Communities are coming together to help raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Michigan, an organization that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Headquartered in Birmingham, HomeFirst™ Certified manages nine manufactured home communities in cities across Michigan, including Belleville, Holly, Jackson, Lansing, Mt. Clemens, New Haven and South Lyon. Each community has joined the campaign to raise $5,000 for Make-A-Wish® Michigan.
“We’re humbled and honored to support the incredible efforts of Make-A-Wish® Michigan,” said Danya Mallad, Director of Sales and Marketing. “The strength and courage of these children and their families is nothing short of inspiring. If our donation brings a smile to even one of their faces, it will have been worth it.”
With homes available to buy or rent, HomeFirst™ Certified Communities provide pleasurable and affordable lifestyles for individuals, families and retirees alike. Residents enjoy a wide range of benefits, including 24-hour on-site management teams, 5-year rate guaranteed home site leases, well-maintained recreational facilities and more.
Since 1984, Make-A-Wish Michigan has granted more than 7,500 wishes. This year the organization’s goal is to reach more than 400 kids - that’s a little more than one wish per day. Wish experiences can be pivotal points in the course of a child’s treatment, helping them feel better and providing an emotional boost.
About Make-A-Wish Michigan
Since 1984, Make-A-Wish® Michigan has granted more than 7,500 wishes to Michigan children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact conducted by Make-A-Wish® America, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses, and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family. Based in Brighton, Mich., with offices in Detroit and Grand Rapids, Make-A-Wish Michigan is funded through community support. Nearly 80 percent of each dollar spent directly benefits the Michigan wish-granting program. Visit http://www.michigan.wish.org to learn more.
