Carrington Carr and Wishes 4 Kids

February 18th, 2012

After doing some research into the Carrington Carr group I was thrilled to read about the work that they do for charity. With so many deserving charities out there is can be difficult to choose which ones to support. So I like to provide support to various groups throughout the year. One of which was the Wishes 4 Kids charity which I became aware of when looking online.

Running the Marathon for a Great Cause

Wishes 4 Kids has been supported by the Carrington Carr group since back in 2003. They have been involved in some great fundraising activities and last year this involved running in the London Marathon. They managed to raise an impressive £1,200 through sponsorship which went to help children and youths affected by illnesses and abuse to enjoy a wish which they and their parents can treasure.

A Little Donation Can Make a Difference

After reading about the work that Carrington Carr has carried out over the years I was inspired to add a donation myself. There was a simple donation page where I was able to choose between making a one off payment or set up a monthly donation.  It was very easy to complete and I felt glad that I could help raise a smile on a child’s face, even just for a few moments as they enjoy their wish coming true.

There are simple business ideas which have been put to test and it has been seen that a lot of these ideas have been successful. One of the things which the people often look for is the discount or the different kinds of offers in the items. At times people have been looking at the leaders who are able to make sure that the company is able to progress and they are able to get the products at best deals as well. Eric Schiffer is one of the people who have been able to do amazing things for the company. There are lots of chain stores which are there in the market but one of the important things is to make sure that customers are attracted to the chain of stores which is there. Often it has been seen that the businesses progress only when a good plan is introduced and care is taken so that the plan materializes. Care should also be taken to ensure that the logistics are well set. In the recent times customers have been looking for the items which are available at fixed but low prices that are the reason they are choosing to shop from the 99 cent stores. Sometimes it is essential to understand the demand in the market so that the products which the company buys are sold at best prices.
