Happy Covid birthday to me! There are so many children suffering from critical illness during a time that is already extremely difficult for them and their families. A wish gives both the child and their families hope for a better future ahead. Whatever is donated today I will personally match.
I have had the privilege of serving on the Junior Board of Make-A-Wish Metro NY for almost two years now. Since then, I have witnessed firsthand the power of a wish and its transformative effect on both children and their families.
A child's wish journey is so much more than going on a trip, meeting a celebrity, or being a superhero for a day. Time and time again, the experience of receiving a wish can be the turning point in a child’s struggle with a critical illness. The excitement and joy that comes with a wish reminds kids of why they need to keep fighting, stay strong and not give up, even in their darkest days.
