SPOTLIGHT OF THE MONTH
I wish to have an organic backyard makeover
Fourteen-year-old Reagan has many dietary restrictions due to a life-threatening gastrointestinal disorder, which has led to his interest in organic food. Thanks to Make-A-Wish®, Reagan's wish to have an organic garden came true with the help of dozens of volunteers and generous donors. He will now be able to grow organic fruits and vegetables and enjoy a peaceful garden setting in his own backyard oasis, complete with organic garden beds, a composter, tower plant garden and fruit trees, drought-resistant ground cover and landscape, and a custom-built koi pond and fountain.

What is Round It Up America®?
Founded by leaders in the restaurant industry, Round It Up America® (RIUA) is a non-profit organization that strives to make change across America through a simple, yet powerful charitable giving program.
Mission Partners - participating RIUA restaurants - provide their patrons with the opportunity to "round up" their purchases to the nearest dollar upon the close of credit card sales. Donations are then distributed to charities quarterly.
In addition to being a platform for the American public to donate to charity, Round It Up America® serves as a vehicle for Mission Partners to easily increase company giving. Mission Partners simply select up to three charities each year to be recipients of their patrons' donations. While the individual donations may be nominal, their collective sum is powerful. Small change can indeed make big change.
Who are we helping?
Local non-profit agencies, including food banks, homeless shelters, crisis relief centers, emergency assistance for military troops and their families, and services that protect the welfare of children and older adults living in our communities.
