Through Exclusive Distribution in Walmart Stores, Portion of Sales From Limited WishPies Dessert Pizza Will Go Toward Granting Wishes for Children With Critical Illnesses
PHOENIX, Aug. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, supporting Make-A-Wish® will be as easy as pie.
Make-A-Wish announces a partnership with WiseChoice Foods, the manufacturer of the frozen pizza brand WisePies Pizza and a certified minority-owned and female-led company based in Albuquerque, N.M., to help fund more life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses through the sales of specially created dessert pizzas for the holidays exclusively available at Walmart stores across the country.
The WishPie by WisePies Pizza is a Cinnamon Apple Drizzle Dessert Pizza made from a stone-fired, cinnamon-infused traditional crust, topped with cinnamon-sugar sauce and diced gala apples. A vanilla icing packet is also included. It will be sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide for a limited time during the holiday season. One dollar from each dessert pizza sold between Nov. 1 and Dec. 24 will go to Make-A-Wish to grant wishes that can help children build the physical and emotional strength needed to fight a critical illness.
"We hope WishPies become a new favorite holiday tradition for families across the United States," said Richard K. Davis, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish America. "Partnerships like the one with WisePies allow families to deliver hope and healing to wish kids and their families during the holiday season in an accessible and fun way."
"WisePies Pizza is humbled and honored to offer a limited-edition dessert pizza supporting the Make-A-Wish efforts to grant more wishes to children experiencing critical illness. WiseChoice Foods encourages healthy and wise lifestyle choices through our clean-label promise for all WisePies products and our community initiatives. The goal of this partnership is to generate community involvement through the consumer purchase of a WishPie that allows more wishes to be granted directly to these children with critical illnesses, leading to more positive outcomes," said Season Chavez, president of WiseChoice Foods. "My brother was granted a wish when he was 12-years old while fighting a rare form of cancer. I know firsthand the positive emotional and physical impact a wish can have on a child and their entire support system including family, friends and their medical team. The creation and sale of the limited edition WishPies is a way this partnership can collectively give back to the community through the generous distribution from Walmart."
Cinnamon Apple Drizzle Dessert Pizza by WisePies Pizza will be available for $6.98 exclusively at Walmart stores across the country for a limited time. For more information about WishPies by WisePies Pizza, please visit www.wisepiespizza.com.
