Mortgage Returns, a database management system and provider of automated marketing solutions for the mortgage industry based in St. Louis, Missouri, has announced a partnership with the Missouri chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation heading into the holiday season.
To begin the partnership, Mortgage Returns has announced it will donate 3 percent of proceeds from sales of its 2014 holiday cards to Make-a-Wish Missouri, an organization that has granted more than 5,000 wishes to children with life threatening illnesses or medical conditions since 1983.
"Make-A-Wish is a perfect fit for us as we embark on a new era within our organization," said Kim Goldstone, director of marketing for Mortgage Returns. "As we celebrate our 10th anniversary as a company, it was paramount to us that we establish a program that will enable us to make a real, tangible difference in our community. We are inspired by the wishes of these children and we want our success to have a direct positive impact on as many children as possible. Holiday cards are only the beginning for us."
After this holiday season is over, Mortgage Returns will continue to contribute to Make-a-Wish Missouri into 2015 by donating a percentage of its proceeds from other sales, as well as a number of special products and promotions.
"We anticipate the holiday card proceeds to be several thousands of dollars going to Make-a-Wish by year’s end," Goldstone said. "As we evolve, we want the spirit of making a difference to flow through the veins of everything we do. In 2015, we look forward to many promotions that will allow us to deepen our relationship and help even more kids. It’s something we have wanted to do for quite some time."
