#GivingTuesday represents a global movement based on providing hope, strength and joy. It also represents a day where every day heroes come together to make the world a better place by giving a selfless gift to benefit others.
At Make-A-Wish, #GivingTuesday is no different. It is a day where heroes like you rally for children battling critical illnesses to show them that there is more to life than their medical condition.
Children just like Amelia, whose wish did not fall into the typical four wish categories of: I wish to be, I wish to go, I wish to meet, or I wish to have. Amelia used her one-true wish to provide a selfless gift to benefit millions around the world. She wished to give back – to take care of the world.
We invite you follow in Amelia’s footsteps and give a selfless gift this #GivingTuesday. Please help us provide even more joy and happiness to local children facing overwhelming odds by making a selfless contribution to continue the vision of Make-A-Wish. By giving, you will help us move one step closer to granting the wish of every eligible child.
Best part, your donation will be matched - dollar for dollar - as an anonymous donor as pledged to match every donation made to our #GivingTuesday campaign up to $15,000! That means if you give $100, our generous donor will match $100, doubling your impact.
It is estimated that each year 600 children are newly diagnosed with a critical illness and qualify for a wish from our local chapter. Currently we are on pace to grant 433 life-changing wishes this year. That means that children are waiting, wishes are waiting.
Will you join the movement this #GivingTuesday as we carry out Amelia’s selfless wish for even more local children in need?
