Press release from: Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines

INDIANAPOLIS ─ Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines will match donations up to $30,000 to Keaton’s Korral at Give Kids The World Village starting on Giving Tuesday, November 29 until the end of the year. All donations can be made on the secure fundraising website: http://support.gktw.org/keatonskorral.

In addition to matching donations, Wheaton | Bekins will host a weekly social media giveaway. Starting on Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, for four weeks, the van line will award a prize to a randomly chosen person who has donated during the previous week. For more information, please go to the Wheaton | Bekins Facebook pages and Twitter pages.

"There are few causes in the world more important than helping children with life threatening illnesses and their families find some peace in their struggle," said Mark Kirschner, CEO of Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines. "Give Kids the World is the catalyst for offering that reprieve. Wheaton | Bekins is an enthusiastic supporter of the Village and we hope everyone who learns more about the organization will do the same -- it's an uplifting endeavor that offers relief to the children and their families and creates positive feelings for those who provide support."

Wheaton World Wide Moving | Bekins Van Lines has been a partner of Give Kids The World since 2000. Through Wheaton | Bekins’ support of Keaton’s Korral, more than 7,900 families annually are able to experience the fun of horse and pony rides, as they wear cowboy hats. Keaton's Korral was named for Keaton White, an alumnus wish child who spoke at a Wheaton | Bekins conference shortly before he lost his battle with cancer. His story touched so many of the agents and employees as he shared his dream to ensure every child experiences the joy he felt during his time at the Village.

"Give Kids The World was one of the happiest times of my life," White said. "I just want to be sure that someday another little boy or girl and their family are loved just as much as me and my family were loved."
