When is Ice Cream More Than Ice Cream?

When is Ice Cream More Than Ice Cream?

When it helps make wishes come true.

And that’s just what Blue Bunny® Ice Cream aims to do, thanks to its alliance with Make-A-Wish®. Since 2013, Wells Enterprises, Inc., the makers of Blue Bunny Ice Cream, has helped Make-A-Wish grant the wishes of 100 children with life-threatening medical conditions.

Willy is an 8-year-old who enjoys coloring, bowling and playing board games with his family. Willy’s wish to swim with dolphins was inspired by his love of animals and one of his favorite movies. He traveled with his family to Discovery Cove in Florida to realize his one true wish. Upon his return, Willy and his family were treated to a welcome home party with friends, family and, of course, Blue Bunny treats!

O’Niyah is a 4-year-old who loves princesses. When she met her wish granters, she knew exactly what she wanted for her wish — to have a princess birthday party. Her party was held at the Ritz Carlton and included three princesses in attendance. Her celebration had everything O’Niyah wished for including delicious food, dancing, a photo booth, games and Blue Bunny ice cream. The joy on O’Niyah’s face was evident from the time the princesses met her. She grinned all day long as she danced, socialized, ate special treats, and opened presents. When the time came for her to say goodbye to her friends, family, and princesses, she didn’t want to leave.

Together, Make-A-Wish and Blue Bunny have granted life-changing wishes to children across the country and will grant 20 more wishes in 2014. You can help Make-A-Wish and Blue Bunny grant more wishes by making an online “Wish Card” at BlueBunny.com/Wishes. Blue Bunny will donate one dollar to Make-A-Wish for every card created, up to $50,000.1

See what happens when ice cream becomes more than ice cream. Look through the photos and stories of wishes already granted and make your own “Wish Card” at BlueBunny.com/Wishes.

1For every “Wish Card” received by September 1, 2014, Blue Bunny will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $50,000. Blue Bunny is proud to support Make-A-Wish with an additional $250,000 donation to help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

I've been making cards for these brave little souls for the last couple of weeks. It's such a wonderful thing for BlueBunny to do and for us all to get involved in.
