Once again, the Incentive Gift Card Council (IGCC), a strategic industry group within the Incentive Marketing Association (IMA), will help grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions through their contribution to the Make-A-Wish-Foundation®.
On December 15, chair of the IGCC Holiday Gift Campaign initiative Rory Smith, RPG/Shell, presented more than $30,000 in cards contributed by IGCC members to Beth Murnane of the Make-A-Wish Foundation®. “The Foundation will utilize the donated gift cards to fulfill wishes, helping reduce the average wish cost.
