Every year the week before Thanksgiving WZPL and the Smiley Morning Show put on a Phonathon for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. If you listen to WZPL 99.5, then most likely you’ve heard the broadcast for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Of all the philanthropies that MS-IL participates in every year the Make-A-Wish Foundation is possibly our favorite. Since its creation in 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has stuck to its core values to improve the lives of children with life threatening medical conditions. The Make-A-Wish foundation reaches more than 250,000 children around the world. To that end, philanthropy is a great part of the MS-IL organization. Originally, I as many of the internal employees of MS-IL were drawn to the MS-IL organization understanding its strong commitment to the charity of others. We at MS-IL are thankful for the Make-A-Wish foundation, and equally thankful to be able to make a life-affirming impact for the lives of children everywhere through great organizations like Make-A-Wish.
