Straight Talk to donate up to USD1,000,000 to Make-A-Wish

Straight Talk Wireless said it will again encourage consumers to give a minute of their time to help grant wishes for children in their local community with life-threatening illnesses as part of the “Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish” program.

“The ability to give consumers the opportunity to enrich their local community, is immeasurable,” said F.J. Pollak, president and CEO of TracFone Wireless, Inc. “For a third year in a row, Straight Talk is honored to continue its support of Make-A-Wish and assist in making children´s wishes come true.”

Every Saturday in September between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. beginning September 6th, Straight Talk Wireless will donate USD1 to Make-A-Wish for every customer who takes a minute to learn about Straight Talk at any one of over 3,000 participating Walmart stores nationwide. With the help of consumers, this program has raised over USD2m in the last two years to grant wishes for Make-A-Wish kids with life-threatening illnesses. The goal again this year is to raise USD1m in four Saturdays.

Available exclusively at Walmart (NYSE: WMT), Straight Talk offers the same phones, including the latest smartphones with 4G LTE+ nationwide coverage on one of America´s largest and most dependable networks for half the cost.
