Mason has worked his Christmas Wish Magic for over 20 years.  In 2002, Mason Dixon Christmas Wish Fund, Inc. became a Florida non-profit corporation, and a designated 501c (3) charity. His charity is completely volunteer based. There are no salaries paid and no professional fundraisers are hired. Well over 90% of the money that is contributed goes right back out to the families in need.

WHO: We help families that are in the Tampa Bay area. Most families we help are those that have fallen on hard times due to job loss, an illness, lack of child support or other mishaps. Generally, these families have fallen through the cracks of public assistance and just need a helping hand.

WHAT: We provide the families with cash, a check, toys and/or certificates.

WHERE: The money we raise stays in the Tampa Bay area. In order to hold expenses, we run Christmas Wish out of the offices of Q105.

HOW: Relatives, friends or those in need are welcome to send letters that explain the hard times that are upon them. All letters are read and evaluated. Wishes are granted both on and off the air.

WHY: Because Mason Dixon’s Christmas Wish Fund, Inc. along with Q105 care about those who are in need in the Tampa Bay area communities.
