Pediped footwear has raised $119,215 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation! They have exceeded all of their expectations for this single fundraiser, and it surpasses the total raised for all fundraisers combined that pediped hosted for the Foundation in 2008.
Help support them again beginning Oct. 25, 2009. Pediped will be hosting a new fundraiser, Stars for a Wish
, in which the company will auction more than 50 celebrity-autographed shoes with 100 percent of money raised to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Among the wonderful celebrities who have signed shoes for the auction are Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Courteney Cox, Faith Hill, Jerome Bettis and David Ortiz.
Pediped became a national sponsor of the Make-A-Wish Foundation out of a desire to care for children beyond their feet. To find out more about current and upcoming fundraisers, visit pediped
