DOYLESTOWN, Pa., Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — The national nonprofit Twilight Wish Foundation is pleased to announce a new partnership with Parentgiving.com, based in Montclair, New Jersey. Keith Maddox, CEO of Parentgiving, presented a check for $10,000 to Cass Forkin, founder of Twilight Wish Foundation at their Doylestown, PA offices on January 10, 2013. The funding received from Parentgiving will be used to create a program to recognize and reward deserving senior caregivers.
"As Twilight Wish celebrates the 9th anniversary of our first wish granted, we are thrilled to be embarking on a new path with Parentgiving, a company that shares our dedication to meeting the needs of the elderly," said Forkin.

The main goal of this partnership is to increase awareness of the contributions of caregivers and recognize all they do for their loved ones."
Said Maddox, "Parentgiving recognizes the strains people face when a senior family member needs care due to health and/or mobility issues. We applaud Twilight Wish for all their work to improve the lives of seniors and are thrilled to partner with them on a program to make caregivers' wishes come true." Parentgiving, which sells thousands of caregiving products for seniors, has arranged for additional ongoing contributions to Twilight Wish through a special coupon code, available on the Twilight Wish website, which gives customers deep discounts and Twilight Wish 5% of each sale.
