has been instrumental in bringing joy to children with life-threatening
medical conditions, and this year giving has never been so easy! CafePress
Inc. (Nasdaq:PRSS), The World's Customization Engine^TM, has teamed up with
Make-A-Wish to develop a revolutionary new giving program that donates money

platform allows CafePress enthusiasts, including CafePress' member base of

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical
conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals
surveyed believe a wish-come-true can have positive impacts on the health of
children. Kids say wishes give them renewed strength to fight their illnesses,
and their parents say these experiences help strengthen the entire family.
Based in Phoenix, Make-A-Wish is one of the world's leading children's
charities, serving children in every community in the United States and its
territories. With the help of generous donors and more than 25,000 volunteers,
Make-A-Wish grants a wish somewhere in the country every 38 minutes. It has
granted over 226,000 wishes since its inception in 1980; nearly 14,000 in 2012
alone. Visit Make-A-Wish at wish.org to learn more.
