Kate is a long-standing supporter of Make-A-Wish; so much so that after launching her new business venture GoodyPass.com last year, she pledged to donate 5% of the profits to the charity, and last April the entire month’s net profits were donated.
Speaking about her new role with Make-A-Wish, Kate (perhaps best-known for her work on ITV’s Daybreak) said: “It is an honour to have been asked to become an Ambassador for Make-A-Wish. I’m really looking forward to being a part of this wonderful charity and the fantastic work it does.”
Neil Jones, Chief Executive of Make-A-Wish, said: “We are delighted to welcome Kate to our team; she has been a key supporter over the last year so we are thrilled to be able to make her an official Ambassador.”
There are currently 20,000 children and young people in the UK fighting a life-threatening condition and this year alone 1,400 children will turn to Make-A-Wish to have their wish granted. The organization needs to raise £6.8 million in 2012 in order to achieve this. To find out how you can help, click here.
