Snappy customers donate $1M to Make-A-Wish through the Snappy platform

Kindness and giving have always been at the heart of Snappy, and we are honored to announce a huge philanthropic milestone today! 

We want to extend a massive thank you to our gift recipients for raising $1 million to Make-A-Wish® through donations on our gifting platform. We are proud to announce this accomplishment one year after officially launching our partnership with Make-A-Wish. 

Snappy and Make-A-Wish together decided to make the most of this important milestone by joining forces to throw an epic “wish send-off” party that was “out of this world” for space fanatic Connor. The Snappy team, Connor’s medical staff, Make-A-Wish representatives and Connor's close family and friends gathered at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. This was just in time for his 9th birthday and right before his upcoming wish trip to Kennedy Space Center in Florida, to meet NASA engineers.

“We are thrilled to grant Connor’s wish in celebration of our donation milestone,” said Hani Goldstein, co-founder and CEO of Snappy. “We're grateful for our partnership with Make-A-Wish and all our gift recipients who donated their well-deserved gifts through our platform to make his “wish send off” party possible.

Most importantly, the party was a big hit with the birthday boy.

“I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful birthday celebration, trivia contest and AMAZING tour of the Intrepid and the Enterprise shuttle,” said Connor’s mom, Carol. “Connor was over the moon (no pun intended) with excitement, and he chattered all the way home in the car before he fell asleep. It meant so much to him!”

The million-dollar milestone was made possible through the support of Snappy's ever-growing community plus the generosity of gift recipients who chose to donate the value of their gift to Make-A-Wish through the Snappy platform, providing hope for kids and their families.

“Our initial goal was to help raise $250,000 for Make-A-Wish in the first year of our partnership. We’re proud to say that we’ve actually quadrupled our goal,” added Goldstein. “Kindness and giving have always been at the heart of our company, and we hope to grant as many wishes as we can.”

At Snappy, we are all about recognition and appreciation, and we send our sincerest gratitude to our customers, team, and everyone who makes a difference through Make-A-Wish. With your help we will continue granting as many wishes as we can.

Where there’s a wish, there’s away! Read the full press release.
