SUBWAY Restaurants located in USA & Canada are joining forces with several charities to give back to the local community. From now through August 31st, more than 7,800 local SUBWAY Restaurants across the US and Canada are participating in the “You Share. We Share.” campaign to help support different charities. When we were asked to promote this campaign on behalf of SUBWAY Restaurants we immediately said YES! We are so excited to be partnering with SUBWAY to share with you this way to give back to your community!
The “You Share. We Share” campaign encourages you to get out and share your weekends with SUBWAY Restaurants, and SUBWAY Restaurants in the Cincinnati area will share right back by donating a percentage of weekend sales, up to $40,000, directly to Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana. As locally owned and operated franchises, SUBWAY Restaurants are excited to be able to further its commitment to the local community. This is a great way to give back while dining out. If you are like me and you are always on the go in the summer stopping for a bite to eat at SUBWAY Restaurants is a great way to eat fresh while on the go. You can use the store locator to find a local restaurant near you.
In Cincinnati SUBWAY Restaurants are partnering with Cincinnati Make-A-Wish. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Make-A-Wish® grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength & joy. I have a dear friend whose daughter Maddie was diagnosed with a rare form of juvenile ovarian cancer who had the opportunity to visit Disney World through the Cincinnati Make-A-Wish® chapter.
Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. On average, they grant a wish every 38 minutes and have brought the power of a wish to over 13,000 children since opening their doors in 1983.
They believe that a wish experience can be a game-changer. A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their life-threatening medical conditions. Doctors, nurses and other health professionals say the wish experience works with medicine to make their patients feel better emotionally and even physically. The wish process also helps strengthen families by allowing them to feel “normal” again and stay focused on something other than treatments. Learn more at www.oki.wish.org.
I asked my friend Angela to share her families Make-A-Wish experience with us. She said, Thanks so much for doing this post about Make-A-Wish, an organization that is very dear to my heart. My favorite quote, although I'm not sure who said it: "When we find gratitude, we escape misery regardless of our trials. When we lose gratitude, we find misery regardless of our blessings. This really summarizes how she feels about Make-A-Wish.
Please join us in in supporting SUBWAY Restaurants and give back to your local community by participating in the “You Share. We Share.” campaign.
