"Stay Strong...and Grant a Wish"
Since 1980 when a boy named Chris wished to be a police officer, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has granted the wishes of more than 240,000 children - one wish every 40 minutes.
As Volunteer Wish Granters with the Central & Western North Carolina chapter, we have experienced first-hand the remarkable power of a wish - the gift of hope, strength and joy is immeasurable to a seriously ill child. It quite simply does what no medicine can - bringing precious moments of respite and joy to the children, their families, and even entire communities.
Make-A-Wish® Central & Western North Carolina covers 51 counties from Burlington west including the area we live, work, and love...the Piedmont/Triad. Our chapter has granted more than 3,000 wishes since its inception in 1985 and has never turned down an eligible wish. This year alone, the chapter will grant 225 wishes - 80 of which are in the Triad!!
We are extending our volunteer work with Make-A-Wish® by "Adopting" a wish - raising the $6,000 needed for the average cost of a wish. Our hope is to raise this money within the Triad and adopt a Wish Child in the Triad as well, making this a local community effort. Once we have met our goal, we will also throw a "Wish Granted" party for our "adopted child". This is a fun, amazing, and memory-filled experience for family, friends, and the community!
Children like Spencer, a Triad-area child who wishes to go to Disney, will receive a much-needed break from countless medical treatments because of Make-A-Wish®. Imagine the benefits of a magical experience full of fun, laughter, and hope!! Please help us make a wish come true for a special child in our area, like Spencer, by making a tax-deductible donation today!
Thank you for your kind support. Every penny counts and puts us one step closer to a wish!
