To kick off its third consumer rebate of the year, Pirelli is partnering with Make-A-Wish® foundation to help make wishes come true for children and their families around the country. From August 23 through September 30, consumers can receive up to $70 back with the purchase of two or four qualifying tires* as Pirelli donates $5 to Make-A-Wish® for each rebate submission. Customers will also have the option to donate the total value of the rebate in their mail-in submission.

This is Pirelli’s largest rebate program to date, with no pre-determined limit on the amount to be donated to Make-A-Wish®. The national charity, ranked one of the top five best charities for kids by Good Housekeeping 2011, will also be supporting the partnership through its 62 local chapters. Increased rebate submissions in specific markets will result in a greater allocation of raised funds to those chapters.

Each year, over 27,000 children are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Make-A-Wish® works to grant their wishes in an effort to “enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.” In 2012, the organization granted over 14,000 wishes to children around the world.
