Going mobile! With a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo, Sundae Spa is partnering with a national charity to hit the road & bring the spa to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
MILFORD, CT, October 18, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Sundae Spa is partnering with a national charity to hit the road and bring Sundae Spa to children with life-threatening medical conditions who cannot come to the interactive spa designed to delight and inspire. Selecting crowdfunding as the means to launch Wish Upon A Sundae Spa, the campaign will launch on Tuesday, October 18th on Indiegogo with the goal of raising $400,000 in the next sixty days. A link for the crowdfunding campaign Wish Upon A Sundae Spa can be found at www.sundaespa.com or directly at https://igg.me/at/wishuponasundaespa.
To kick off the campaign, Sundae Spa hosted the children from Make-A-Wish Foundation of Connecticut on Sunday, October 16, 2016 at their location in the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford, Connecticut for an afternoon gala of glitz and glamour to celebrate taking the first step by launching the crowdfunding campaign live on Indiegogo so that the whole world can help these special children. This special day designed for Connecticut Make-A-Wish children included eye kandy make up; making spa products; creating fairy dust bracelets; playing dress-up; making slime; glitter tattoos; face paint and even creating fairy and troll doors. As Sundae Spa's further commitment to this organization that they hold near and dear to their hearts, the spa is always available to the charity at NO CHARGE for kids' events.
Sundae Spa's plans to initially bring the Wish Upon A Sundae Spa Mobile to four locations - Hartford, CT; Boston, MA; Philadelphia, PA; and New York, NY hosting 12-15 children from the charity for the best party ever. Additionally, a party will be auctioned off in each market giving all the proceeds to the national charity partner. Sundae Spa has created a magical party and event packages dedicated to this charity and a percentage of all parties sold will go directly back to the charity to grant more wishes. As Sundae Spa's further commitment to this cause that they hold near and dear to their hearts, the spa is always available to the charity at NO CHARGE for kids' events.
Sundae Spa combines science with a spa experience makes kids want to learn while they feel good about themselves. In business now for six years, Sundae Spa's owner, the Swan family, has always been active in the community but realized that not all their own wishes or the wishes of kids who are experiencing illness have been met.
Kim Swan, chief innovator, decided the only way to reach all children throughout the region and ultimately throughout the country would be to design a Sundae Spa on wheels that could go anywhere and bring their unique spa experience to those who need it most. Reaching out to the public to help them reach this goal seemed like the natural next step. Thus, a crowdfunding campaign was created to bring Wish Upon A Sundae Spa on the road.
So imagine sitting back enjoying a cotton candy pedicure while you devour a princess ice cream sundae specially prepared for you. Then, you move on to fruit loops manicure topped off with a hair wrap in hot pink and orange and some glitter make-up to complete the day of spa perfection while enjoying a heavenly 'Sundae Spa' atmosphere complete with cupcakes on the walls and cherries hanging from the ceiling. Then imagine that you are only 3 to 14 years old.
"Sundae Spa is a dream come true. It's my family's vision of a fantasy business brought to life. We now want to share our creation throughout the country and make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. Our family counts its blessings and giving back is what makes us feel good. Wish Upon A Sundae Spa will make the Sundae Spa dream a reality for those who can't visit our two Connecticut locations," states Kim, Swan, owner and innovator, Sundae Spa.
The possibilities are only limited by location so by creating the Sundae Spa mobile which this talented family will actually build to open the door for creating fairy fantasies and magical dreams.
About Sundae Spa
Sundae Spa is the brilliant concept of science teacher Kimberly Swan with the support of her husband Ron and the seven girls they raised. The family decided to become the sole investors in this amazing venture after a two-year search for outside capital and opened in 2010. Along with family members, the Swans personally constructed the spa. They now have two locations that are family owned and operated in Connecticut including the Connecticut Post Mall in Milford and Waterbury.
Fast forward six years later and Sundae Spa is trying to make wishes come true for others by partnering with a national charity dedicated to making wishes come true for kids with medical issues by going mobile. Wish Upon A Sundae Spa will make the Sundae Spa dream a reality for those who can't visit our two locations! For more info, go to http://www.sundaespa.com or call (203) 877-1145.
