Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish #StraightTalkWish

I participated in this sponsored campaign for One2One Network. All opinions are 100% my own.
Making a difference for someone else can be as simple as offering a smile to a stranger. Today I'd like to encourage you to go a step further and visit your local Walmart this Saturday, September 28th for the "Give A Minute, Help Make-A-Wish" program. Take just one minute to learn about Straight Talk, America’s largest no-contract cell phone provider in the U.S., and Straight Talk Wireless will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish for your time. Straight Talk will donate a minimum of $500,000 to Make-A-Wish and up to $1,000,000, which they achieved during last year's program!

If you don't live near a Walmart, you can still participate in this wonderful program. Also through this Saturday, September 28th, when you share the video on on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest, Straight Talk will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $100,000 (one donation per viewer, per day) towards their $1,000,000 goal. It's fast, easy and worth every second!

We've actually looking into ways to reduce our cell phone bill recently. With Straight Talk, there are plans starting as low as $30, but still with all the bells and whistles that today's society sort of expects you have i.e. texting, data plans, and plenty of talking minutes. This would actually cut our cell phone bill in HALF! I was worried about cell coverage, but it appears that Straight Talk actually partners with existing wireless networks nationwide, and apparently provides more service for more zip codes than any other carrier. Ummmm, time to switch because our current "great service" is actually quite spotty in our own home! They also have all the same phone brands as everyone else like Samsung, Apple, Windows and LG which is perfect. Even better, Straight Talk is partnering with an awesome organization to grant wishes to sick kids.

I love finding opportunities to help people. Today for instance, I helped an elderly woman bag her groceries at a local grocery store that doesn't have baggers. It was a chance to serve, make someone's day a bit brighter and to be an example to my son (while we played hooky from real school work for a couple hours - homeschool is not always about academics!). With an opportunity to help a worthy organization change the lives of sick kids, count me in. I'm sure there are a few things we need to pick up at Walmart anyway! So go to your local Walmart this Saturday, and take just one minute of your time to learn about Straight Talk.
