PASADENA, Calif., Nov. 11, 2019 / / -- One & All, a leading agency serving the nonprofit sector, today announced a strategic partnership with Make-A-Wish® America, the largest wish-granting organization for children with critical illnesses. Together, Make-A-Wish and One & All will strive to grant the wish of every eligible child.
At present, Make-A-Wish can accommodate half of such wishes but is committed to doing even more because of the potential power of a wish in a child's healing journey. Research shows that wishes can help children build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight their illness.
To rapidly expand their wish-granting capacity, Make-A-Wish sought a partner with standard-setting expertise in digital media and direct-response TV fundraising. As the selected agency, One & All has been tasked with integrating those two channels seamlessly.
According to One & All, a fundamental shift has taken place over the past five years in the way consumers view and engage with brands. A key differentiator in today's nonprofit marketplace is the ability to harness the power of integrated online and offline video and to reimagine the way nonprofits interact and engage with prospects and donors using audience-specific content throughout the brand funnel.
"We are immensely proud to be partnering with Make-A-Wish America, one of the most well-known, respected, and emotionally powerful social impact organizations in the country," said Kevin White, President, One & All. "Excitement about the account is incredibly high throughout the agency, and our teams are eager to tell the stories of the wish kids and their families. We look forward to bringing the agency's 40-plus years of TV and video success to bear so Make-A-Wish can grant more wishes and change even more lives."
"We are thrilled to have One & All support our mission to grant every eligible child's wish," said Amanda Clayton, Senior Director, Digital Revenue, Make-A-Wish America. "Through the guidance of the One & All team around digital and TV strategy, we can more effectively connect with individuals who can support our mission to reach each child and ultimately move us closer to our goal of granting every wish."
