Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish #StraightTalkWish

I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network.

We've all heard about Straight Talk right? If you haven't, let me fill you in...

  • Straight Talk is a service provided by TracFone Wireless Inc., America’s largest no-contract cell phone provider in the U.S.
  • Straight Talk partners with existing wireless networks nationwide to provide no-contract wireless phone service.
  • Straight Talk is available exclusively at Walmart and the cost savings of not having to maintain stores is passed directly on to customers.
  • Straight Talk has all of the same great phones as the contract carries, including name brands like Samsung, Apple, Windows and LG.
  • Straight Talk offers the same networks and the same phones at half the cost.
  • Straight Talk provides service in more zip codes than any other wireless carrier and reaches more than 300 million Americans.
  • The “ALL YOU NEED” plan for $30 a month to receive 1,000 minutes, 1,000 text or multimedia messages, 30 MB of data transfer for data phones and 411 calls at no additional charge.
  • The unlimited plan for $45 a month to receive unlimited talk, text and data Nationwide anytime with calls to 411 at no additional charge.

Currently if you go to your local Walmart, you will see booths set up where you can find more information about this program and even sign your name to help them donate. My family and I were at Walmart this past weekend, and by signing just our first names, they're donating $1 per name listed. I decided to put my husband and I both down for a $2 donation. While it doesn't seem like a lot, could you imagine how much can be donated if each person walking by took the 15 seconds to write down their first name on the list?!

  • Every Saturday in September, Straight Talk Wireless will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for each person that visits their participating local Walmart and takes a minute to learn more about Straight Talk.
  • Straight Talk will donate a minimum of $500,000 to Make-A-Wish and up to $1,000,000.
  • Believe it or not, not everyone lives near a Walmart! From now until September 28, when you share the video on, Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish®, up to $100,000 (one donation per viewer, per day) towards their $1,000,000 goal. It's fast, easy and worth every second!
  • This is the second year in a row that Straight Talk will be hosting this program. Last year’s program was very successful, reaching its $1,000,000 donation mark!
  • Straight Talk believes there is nothing greater than granting a sick child’s wish. They are thrilled to be able to be part of making that happen again this year.

We've considered switching ourselves in the past, and also thought about this weekend as we were there learning more about the company. Not only do they offer great name brands products at an affordable rate, they also care about helping others. Make A Wish has always been something I've grown up knowing helps kids make their dreams come true and lift their spirits and I think its a wonderful thing that Straight Talk is so passionate about helping the cause! 

Why not visit your local Walmart and help others?! Doesn't take much time and you'll feel great for doing it, as well as learning more about Straight Talk and what they're all about.
