Samanage Pledges Additional Donation to Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina on #GivingTuesday
Fundraising efforts during Dreamforce 2017 led to wish fulfillment on Giving Tuesday.
CARY — November 29, 2017 — Samanage, the Service Success Company, today announced it is making an additional $5,000 donation to Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina as part of the week-long fundraising campaign to celebrate November 28th #GivingTuesday, the global day of giving fueled by the power of collaboration. The additional gift will go to grant the wish of a local child who is battling a life-threatening illness. The latest pledge brings Samanage’s total donation to the local organization to $10,000 during this holiday season.
Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina covers 49 counties, granting wishes to children between the ages of 2.5 and 18. Since its founding in 1986, the chapter has granted wishes to more than 3,400 kids. Celebrating #GivingTuesday, Samanage pledged $5,000 to Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina to fund the wish of 15-year-old Bethany from Person County. Bethany’s wish was for a camper for her and her family to use and enjoy while exploring the beaches and mountains of North Carolina. Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina delivered the camper in front of her family and friends at Theresa Baptist Church in Roxboro, N.C. on Tuesday, November 28, fulfilling her wish.
Earlier this month in San Francisco, during Dreamforce 2017, the largest software conference in the world organized by Salesforce, Samanage partnered with Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina to help support this $10,000 donation. During the event, Samanage committed $1 for each visitor to the Samanage booth, and $5 for every on-site survey that was complete, resulting in over $5,000 in donations.
“Make-A-Wish is doing truly noble work for the local North Carolina community and the entire Samanage organization is honored to support them,” said Doron Gordon, founder and CEO, Samanage. “We are humbled to help Make-A-Wish kick off this fundraising campaign for Bethany and hope that many more will join us in this holiday season of giving.”
