Incentive Gift Card Council Members Make Holiday Wishes Come True with Card Contributions to Make-A-Wish Foundation®

December 16, 2011

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. The cards will be used for wish enhancements and wish parties. We are extremely grateful to the IGCC and all of its member companies for their generosity,” said Murnane.
