MILWAUKEE (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
Kohl’s and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel announce the 3rd Annual Aaron Rodgers’ 12 Days of Christmas campaign to support the MACC Fund, a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research into the effective treatment and cure for childhood cancer and blood disorders.
“Kohl’s has made a wonderful commitment to its hometown and to the causes of children across the country,” said MACC Fund President Jon McGlocklin. “We are partners in support of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, one of the nation’s leading hospitals for children. It is exciting to know that there are companies like Kohl’s and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel to join our friend and benefactor, Aaron Rodgers—to focus on the journeys of 12 children over 12 days. This campaign is a ‘trifecta of Hope’ that exemplifies the spirit of the holidays.”
The local community may get involved in Aaron Rodgers’ 12 Days of Christmas while they do their holiday shopping. Milwaukee-area Kohl's stores will donate 5 percent of the net sales of all eligible toy purchases made between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12, 2014, to the MACC Fund.
Once again this year, 12 children battling cancer and blood disorders are featured each day between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12, 2014, in full-page ads in the Journal Sentinel and on the special website, http://www.jsonline.com/twelvedays.
Aaron Rodgers has been involved with the MACC Fund since 2010. His commitment has provided an extra level of “Hope” to children battling cancer and blood disorders. He is an MVP to the children and the MACC Fund helping to raise over $1.5 million in net proceeds in the last 5 years.
“I’m fully aware the MACC Fund started in 1976,” Rodgers said. “It’s been around since before I was born and it’s going to carry on long after I’m gone. But right now, I have an opportunity to have an impact on it.”
