Help make wishes come true Fri., Feb. 15

Help make wishes come true during the 21st Annual Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon for Make A Wish on Friday, February 15 with Jonesboro Radio Group and KAIT. Your donations will help grant the wishes of children battling critical illnesses right here in Northeast Arkansas.

A wish come true helps children feel stronger, more energetic, more willing and able to battle their critical illnesses. Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you’ll ever know.  Their creativity is the driving force behind some incredible wish experiences.

Tune in from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on 104.9 The Fox, Mix 106.3, 100.5 The Eagle Rocks, and Hot 107.5 to hear from wish kids who will share their wish stories and will no doubt touch your heart and make you smile.

You can be a part of the magic by calling in your donation to (870) 933-8800, dropping your donation into a bucket at one of our roadblock locations, by texting the word WISH to 77000, or by going to the Have-A-Heart Wish-A-Thon donation page.

Help make wishes come true on Friday, February 15 with Jonesboro Radio Group and KAIT!

Ways to donate are as follows:

Give us a jingle at (870) 933-8800. Every time a phone rings, a child gets their wish…well it depends on how much you give, but every penny helps, so call us maybe. No, make that call us for sure.
You can donate online, through a secure server via our Make-A-Wish donation page. Try it now. It’ll make your heart and mouse feel good.
You can give by stopping at one of our Wish-A-Thon Roadblock locations, spread throughout NEA. Think of them as a drive thru for wishes. A list of locations is provided below.
You’re invited to come see us in person at Jonesboro Radio Group headquarters on 314 Union. We take checks, cash, credit cards, and hugs. We love hugs — we were raised by huggers.
