I am passionate about Make-A-Wish. The organization and their mission are very dear to me. If you’re not familiar, they create life-changing wishes for local children with critical illnesses. I believe so strongly in their mission that, last year, I completed the Trailblaze Challenge - a 28.3 mile HIKE - and raised over $24,000! It's a great honor to be considered a Woman that Inspires Strength and Hope.
Why am I so passionate? Wish kids are some of the bravest and sweetest kids you'll ever know. Wishes give the kids and their families the opportunity to focus on their dreams as they take a break from the "dis-ease" of combating their critical illness. Wish kids wish to work in a pickle factory, become a superhero, and push all of the buttons in a tall building's elevator. These amazing experiences inspire them to imagine a future beyond illness and fight harder!
Locally, the Central and Western North Carolina chapter grants more than 385 wishes per year at an average cost of $6,000 per wish, but they can’t do it without help. As a 2018 W.I.S.H. (Women Inspiring Strength & Hope) Society Honoree, my goal is to raise enough to grant at least one child’s wish entirely. With your help, it’s possible!
There are few experiences more powerful than making a wish come true. Please help me raise $6,000 and join me in granting a wish by donating $100, $50, $25, or whatever you can. No amount is too small to make an immediate, direct, and substantial impact in a child’s life during a time of great need! I am commited to matching your gifts, dollar for dollar!
With love and gratitude,
