Professional Communication Class to Hold Fundraiser for Make-a-Wish Foundation of Minnesota

Globe University-Minneapolis will partner with Cosi Restaurant to sell cookies for $1.00 to benefit the Make-a-Wish Foundation® on Tuesday, September 2, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Crystal Court of the IDS Center, downtown Minneapolis.

The Make-a-Wish Foundation cookie sale is an applied learning project created by Globe University-Minneapolis’ Professional Communications students who wanted to use their writing and communication techniques to raise awareness and funds for an admirable cause.

Tom Stoltz, program chair and instructor, adds, “This project with Make- a-Wish has been a pure applied learning project. My students have been able to learn and use their newly acquired writing skills along with customer service skills to make this project really work well for this great organization. Our partnership with Cosi and the IDS Center shows a true community spirit.”

The students learned about Make-a-Wish and their funding needs through Globe University’s long-standing association with the foundation.  To assist with the fundraising effort, Cosi, an IDS restaurant and coffee shop generously donated a large supply of their tantalizing chocolate cookies.

“This wonderful three-way partnership—Make-a-Wish Foundation, Cosi, and Globe University—demonstrates how organizations can work together to provide services for children in our communities,” said Globe University student Akilah Muhammad.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota is dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
