Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. They wish to learn to surf, to be a zookeeper at the world-famous San Diego Zoo, to be a superhero, to bring a new puppy home to love and cuddle. Or, like my cousin's son, Joshua, experience a Disney cruise with his family to create lasting memories and give something to his siblings who are there for him through all his ups and downs with cystic fibrosis. The innocence of wish kids stays with you; their unexpected wisdom inspires.
Make-A-Wish grants thousands of unique wishes each year. That's a lot of wishes, but currently only 50% of eligible kids recieve the life-change gift of a wish. I’m fundraising so more deserving kids and their families can know the happiness, relief, and renewal a wish can bring. This year in San Diego, we are setting our sights on raising $500,000. The average wish costs just about $10,000, so we're striving to grant one wish every week for an entire year!
