WARWICK – Marketing company Astonish Results recently donated $28,950 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Astonish Results raised the funds during a campaign in December.

“We are beyond thrilled by the charitable contribution from Astonish Results,” said Paula Montgomery, Rhode Island regional director, Make-A-Wish Foundation of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. “The average cost to grant a child’s wish is $6,500; with this donation we’ll be able to grant at least four wishes for children in Rhode Island.”

Astonish Results’ campaign included setting aside a portion of the proceeds from each product sold in December, a pledge to donate for each Facebook “like”, and the personal matching of funds by the company’s executive team.

“Partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation has been a rewarding experience,” said Adam DeGraide, CEO of Astonish Results. “Not only has Astonish Results been able to help grant wishes for local children, but we have grown stronger as an organization while working together to achieve a rewarding common goal.”
