For Immediate Release
Frampton Homes helps make wishes come true!
Make-A-Wish® Iowa was chosen as the 2020 Charity Home to be built by Frampton Homes
DES MOINES, IA (April 23, 2019) – Frampton Homes has announced Make-A-Wish® Iowa as the non-profit organization for their 2020 Charity Home. On Monday, April 29 at 9 am, Frampton Homes will break ground on the Charity Home with the help of 3-year-old wish kid, Daxton, who will be running the excavator. In February, Daxton’s wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort came true. Join Frampton Homes, Make-A-Wish Iowa, and Daxton at 1201 NW 5th Street in Grimes for the groundbreaking ceremony.
This is the second time Make-A-Wish Iowa has had the opportunity to partner with Frampton Homes. Make-A-Wish Iowa was the recipient of a $100,000 donation from their 2018 Charity Home.
Justin and Dani Frampton were introduced to Make-A-Wish Iowa more than 4 years ago through the Des Moines Gala. Since then the organization has held a special place in the Frampton’s hearts. “We are so excited to partner with Frampton Homes again on the Charity Home. They have been incredibly generous to our wish kids and have such big hearts. We look forward to continuing this partnership to raise funds to grant wishes for local kids. It’s an honor to be their chosen organization again!” said JoDee Stensland, Board of Directors Member and Des Moines Gala Chair for Make-A-Wish Iowa.
Make-A-Wish Iowa is also celebrating World Wish Day® on April 29, the 39th anniversary of the wish for then-7-year-old Chris Greicius that inspired the founding of the organization. World Wish Day celebrates the hundreds of thousands of life-changing wishes that have been granted – and the thousands of wishes still to come.
Experience a wish. It’s awe-inspiring. It’s uplifting. It’s everlasting.
