CSN Collision Centres is launching its CSN Driving Wishes campaign to raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Canada. They will be driving the CSN Wish Mobile from Newfoundland to British Columbia this spring. On World Wish Day®, April 29, 2020, the anniversary of the wish that launched Make-A-Wish® and a global wish granting movement, CSN will begin its cross-Canada journey, making stops at participating CSN locations along the way. As the car travels from province to province, anyone who spots the vehicle is encouraged to use #csnwishmobile on social media to participate in the campaign.
“We are thrilled and honoured to be able to launch this campaign in partnership with Make-A-Wish®. We truly believe in this cause and we hope that you can join us as we embark on this incredible journey,” said Ashley Thorpe, Marketing Director, CSN Collision Centres.
Each of the geographic regions that CSN operates in — British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Atlantic Canada — will be raising funds to help grant the wish of a child in their respective communities. CSN licensees who donate $1,000 or more to the CSN Driving Wishes campaign will be eligible to be featured along the CSN Wish Mobile location stops as it travels across the country. During each of these stops, there will be campaign highlights including photo opportunities, local media coverage, community outreach events, and visits from Make-A-Wish ambassadors. The goal of the campaign is to raise $200,000 to grant wishes to children across the Canada.
“We are grateful to have partners like CSN Collision Centres that understand the impact of a wish on children, families and communities and are committed to supporting the life-changing work we do,” said Chris Pon, Vice President, National Corporate Alliances, Make-A-Wish Canada. CSN Collision Centres has supported Make-A-Wish since 2011 and raised nearly half a million dollars in support of our mission.
