San Jose, CA (Nov 25, 2014) —JumpSport Trampolines is teaming up with Make-A-Wish® on a month-long holiday cause-marketing campaign. From November 28th until December 31st, for every AlleyOOP Trampoline sold directly on or by calling its toll-free number, 1-888-567-5867, JumpSport will donate one SoftBounce™ Trampoline package (including trampoline, enclosure and ladder) to Make-A-Wish.

JumpSport's goal for the holiday campaign is to be able to donate a minimum of two trampoline packages to each of the 61 Make-A-Wish chapters nationwide. The JumpSport® trampolines can be used by a chapter to help fulfill a child's wish to have an amazing play space or backyard makeover, or can be used at a Make-A-Wish event as an auction item to raise funds that will help grant wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions.

"Whether they be used for fundraising purposes or for enhancing wish kids' backyards, the trampolines that JumpSport donates will help our chapters grant more life-changing wishes," said Kathy Forshey, vice president of corporate alliances for Make-A-Wish America. "This alliance brings us one step closer to our vision of one day granting a wish for every eligible child."

The inventor of the trampoline safety enclosure, Mark Publicover, JumpSport's founder: "We're so grateful to be working with Make-A-Wish to bring joy and laughter to these wish kids and their families who are so deserving of this holiday gift."

JumpSport is a family-owned and family-focused company founded in 1997 by Mark and Valerie Publicover. After their 3 kids experienced several fall-off accidents on their trampoline, Mark invented the trampoline safety net that now protects millions of bouncing kids around the world. Today, JumpSport distributes its top-rated safety trampolines, trampoline basketball goals, and its JumpSport® Fitness Trampolines worldwide at fitness clubs and retailers like Amazon and Costco. JumpSport's award-winning iBounce™ Kids Trampoline is focused on the important connection between physical activity and learning development in children.

With over 25 patented safety and game innovations, JumpSport continues to create playful, active and educational products for kids and adults of all ages.
