GameStop to run Make-A-Wish donation program in May

GameStop will host a Make-A-Wish donation program in its stores from May 1 to May 31, prompting customers to donate $1 or more in addition to their purchases. All proceeds in GameStop's donation program go directly to Make-A-Wish.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses in the United States, with an average of one wish granted every 38 minutes.

"Wish experiences can be game-changers for both the children and their families, helping wish kids feel better mentally, and in some cases, even get better physically," Make-A-Wish American CEO David Williams said. "We are thankful for the generous support of GameStop."

GameStop hopes to raise $100,000 for Make-A-Wish in May.
