For over 40 years, our friends at Make-A-Wish® have created more than 400,000 life-changing wishes worldwide for kids with critical illnesses. Copper Moon Coffee is partnering with our local chapter in Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana (OKI), to help every wish come true.
Every year, Make-A-Wish® celebrates World Wish Day® on April 29th. This day marks the anniversary of the very first wish for then-7-year-old Chris Greicius, who had been diagnosed with leukemia in 1980 (watch the video below to see how it all started with one wish). But this World Wish Day® is extra special for our chapter. Together with Make-A-Wish® OKI, we are celebrating their 18,000th wish granted!
10% of ALL proceeds will be donated to Make-A-Wish OKI
To help create even more wishes this World Wish Day®, Copper Moon Coffee is donating 10% of ALL online proceeds from April 23rd–30th to Make-A-Wish® OKI. So when you are shopping for any of our uniquely smooth Coffees or our Out-Of-This-World Merch before the end of April, your purchase will create a wish for a child who needs hope!
Buy a Star, Be a Star—Donate at our Cafés
To take our World Wish Day® fundraising efforts one step further, we are giving local Copper Moon Coffee customers the opportunity to partner with Make-A-Wish® OKI. You can visit our café locations in Lafayette and West Lafayette, Indiana, to make donations of $1, $5, or $10, and sign your name on a blue Make-A-Wish® Star (pictured with 5-year-old wish kid, Frank).
We would love to fill our Café walls with these beautiful blue stars, so stop by for the freshest locally roasted coffee in greater Lafayette and help bring hope, strength, and joy to children when they need it the most.
Now more than ever, hope is essential.
A child’s wish begins with hope—and hope begins with you.
Since 1980, Make-A-Wish® has learned what a wish can do. It’s more than a moment in time. Research shows children who have wishes granted build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness, improve their quality of life, and produce better health outcomes. Wishes can also restore families and unite entire communities!
Watch how it all started with one wish!
Make-A-Wish® OKI has a sole mission: Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Since the Chapter’s inception in 1983, Make-A-Wish® OKI has granted over 18,000 wishes to children with critical illnesses. It is their vision to grant the wish of every medically eligible child in their chapter territory. They believe a wish experience can be a game-changer. This one belief guides and inspires them to grant wishes that change the lives of the kids and families they serve. To learn more and donate, visit wish.org/oki.
