This holiday season, Fresh Produce wanted to do more than provide colorful, stylish clothing to our fans. We were inspired by one of our long-time fans, Jeanette, who wished to be a model in one of our photoshoots. When we read her wish months ago, we said… “Why not?!” and decided to grant her wish by inviting her to our next photoshoot!
It was with this same attitude that we launched the Wishes Do Come True campaign this December. We received over 1,200 wishes from our fans, and were overwhelmed by each and every heartfelt wish… Originally, we were going to grant 3 wishes. But today, we are more than happy to announce that we will be granting not 3, but 10 wishes.
You can read each of the ten wishes being granted below… Stay tuned to see exactly how we are granting each of these wishes!
Elizabeth from Fort Myers, FL “I wish that my sister, who lives in New Jersey, could spend one more week with me in Florida. She has cancer, and we would love to spend a few days together while she’s still able to get around”
Deb from Lawrenceville, GA “A greenhouse/outdoor classroom for my Title 1 school garden.”
Kellie from Wilmington, NC “I wish my sister and her three children had enough warm clothes and food to get them through the winter. They live in MA, and their Daddy died 1 1/2 years ago…”
Nicole from Aurora, CO “That our kids could be blessed with Christmas this year, after one of our twins spent 3 months in the hospital, and had 5 surgeries. We just need some Christmas cheer in our lives, anything from a toy to a family vacation we would be blessed and grateful for.”
Marianne from Melbourne, FL “I wish for 2 winter coats and warm pants for twin girls with Autism in my class. The girls wear a size 12/14 and are in 6th grade… Their Mom cannot afford new clothing…”
Lynette from North Fort Myers, FL “I would love to go to a grocery store, gas station, etc. …and just pay for someone’s groceries or gas for their car. I would just like to pay back some kindness in a world filled with so much conflict. I know it’s a small act, but it would put a smile on someone’s face and they would remember it for a lifetime.”
Mary Alice from Calverton, NY “Scarfs for all the patients at the Cancer Center at Stony Brook University Hospital in Stony Brook, NY 11794.”
Sandi from Dayton, OH “New work clothes for my daughter… She is a single mother of two, and this past year our grandson had to have multiple surgeries. She has given every last penny to her children or doctors. She works as a preschool teacher, and I know she wants to look nice and professional at work. But under the circumstances, it’s just not happening for her.”
Susan from Scottsdale, AZ “I have a severe nerve disease that has made my entire body very skin sensitive. I started wearing Fresh Produce 20 years ago, and as my disease has progressed, the clothes from Fresh Produce are the only clothes that don’t irritate my skin! Fresh Produce has saved my life! My greatest desire would be to have updated styles!”
