Enter Make-A-Wish. When we learned Claire was eligible for a wish we sent our paperwork and forgot about it. It's amazing how the lack of positive excitement in your life can create it's own state of normalcy. Then one day we received a letter in the mail saying they wanted to grant Claire a wish. Well the tears flowed and the laughter began. We started talking about what she might ask for, when it might be and ever so slowly we began living again. Claire wished to go to Disney World and be a princess for a day. The days leading up to her Wish Trip were magical but they never could have prepared us for what would meet us when we touched down in Orlando, FL. That week brought back the daughter we thought we had lost. Her smile was so big, her energy so high that it was the breath of fresh air we had been needing. For a week we focused on fun and smiles and making memories. Most importantly, Claire got to be a kid.
So, you see, this is our why. No child should forego a childhood, and no family should lose sight of that precious child and the life they have together.
Join us as we raise money for Make-A-Wish to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. Life-changing wishes wouldn't happen without the power of donors like you. Your support gives children much-needed hope for brighter days ahead.
For 40 years, Make-A-Wish has brought transformational wishes to more than 330,000 children and families. But we're not done yet.
Your donation today will help make every wish come true. Together, we can continue to be a light of hope throughout this time of crisis - and beyond.
Thank you for your support!
