Wishing Well International Foundation Continues Fundraising Efforts

Organization will be available at Aquatech to answer questions and accept donations

The Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) continues to grow. In recent months, it has continued with a variety of efforts to increase its fundraising efforts and raise awareness of its cause.

In February, WWIF leaders met with leaders from the Water Quality Assn. (WQA). WQA President Robert Hague offered the foundation a both at Aquatech USA 2011, but because of the short notice, WWIF opted to be featured at H2O International’s booth (615) and KDF Fluid Treatment’s booth (906).

WWIF founder and CEO Guillermo Guzman was available to answer questions at H2O International’s booth, while Issa and Denise Al-Kharusy will promote the foundation at KDF’s booth. Companies and individuals made donations or signed up to become sponsors at either booth.

WWIF also introduced its new stainless steel water bottle with logo at Aquatech. The first 100 donors to make the minimum suggested donation of $10 received a free bottle.

The organization also is increasing its fundraising efforts. The city of Lighthouse Point, Fla., agreed to hold a fundraiser to benefit WWIF. On April 30, the Lighthouse Point Tennis Center and the Lighthouse Point Yacht and Racket Club will host a chili cook-off and round robin tennis tournament to benefit the organization.

Finally, WWIF is looking to partner with a non-profit group to work with in Haiti. Once it finds a partner, the organization will send Biosand filters for families affected by the 2010 earthquake.
