UPDATE: We reached our goal and Dr. Chaleff's facial hair is now pink with blue polka dots! If you would like to help us continue to raise funds for wish kids like Morgan, this page will be up through the end of April. Thank you to all that have already given and helped us Wish It Forward!

Welcome to the Walton's Wish It Forward Fundraising Page! We started this fundraiser to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses. With your help, it's possible. Our goal is to raise $7,000, the amount that is needed to fulfill a wish in Maine. We know first-hand, the impact of a wish and invite you to join us as we raise money to share the power of a wish!
Morgan Walton is a Wish Kid! (See more about her wish here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piWqYFxlpCU) When Morgan was going through treatment it was difficult for her to attend school. Her oncologist, Stanley Chaleff believed that when Morgan was able to return to school she should but Morgan was reluctant to return to school. Dr. Chaleff decided to incentivize Morgan into going back to school. He let Morgan come up with an idea that would be a reward for her returning to school after treatment. Morgan came up with an idea to dye Dr. Chaleff's hair pink (her favorite color) for a day and to walk around the mall, the hospital, and MAW office with Morgan. What an idea! Morgan returned to school this fall and now it is time for Dr. Chaleff to dye his hair pink!
With Morgan being a Wish Kid and Dr.Chaleff being on the Board of Directors for Make-A-Wish Maine, we decided to make this idea into a MAW Fundraiser. But, if you know Dr. Chaleff, he is lacking some hair on his head, sooooo if our fundraiser raises $7,000, he will also dye his beard!! The date has been set for March 29th. Please help us raise the funds for a wish by donating to this Pink Hair Day! As an added bonus, those who donate $500+ will receive an autographed picture of pink-haired Dr. Chaleff and Morgan. We will also post pictures to document this day!
Thank you very much!
