Straight Talk Wireless® Donates Over $1,000,000 To Make-A-Wish® For Second Consecutive Year

PHOENIX and MIAMI, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading U.S. no-contract cell phone service provider Straight Talk Wireless® donated over $1,000,000 to Make-A-Wish today as a result of the successful "Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish®" program. During the month of September, Straight Talk Wireless donated $1 to Make-A-Wish for every consumer who took a minute to learn about Straight Talk at over 3,000 Walmart stores nationwide. In-store participation by hundreds of thousands of consumers along with a social sharing effort made it possible to donate over $1,000,000 to Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions.


"Straight Talk is honored to continue its partnership with Make-A-Wish for the second year in a row," said F. J. Pollak, president and CEO of TracFone Wireless, Inc. "We are thrilled to provide an easy way for Walmart customers to learn about the money they can save with Straight Talk while helping grant wishes in their local community."

Straight Talk Wireless offers the Same Phones, the Same Networks, at Half the Cost*.  Plans include a $45 per month option with Unlimited** talk, text and data and nationwide coverage on America's largest and most dependable networks.

"Once again, Straight Talk is helping us grant more life-changing wishes that help sick kids feel better and sometimes even get better," said David A. Williams, president and CEO of Make-A-Wish America. "The tremendous response and participation in 'Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish' is truly a testament to the caring nature of people in communities throughout the country."

For the second consecutive year, Straight Talk set the donation goal of $1,000,000 to Make-A-Wish. Both 2012 and 2013 programs successfully surpassed the goal to help grant wishes of children across the country with life-threatening medical conditions.
