11 Reasons To Be Thankful For Make-A-Wish

January 16, 2015

If giving back to the community is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, Make-A-Wish might be the perfect charity for you to support. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of local children between the ages of 2 ½ and 18 who are battling critical illnesses. If you are still not convinced that Make-A-Wish is the charity for you, a recent Wish Nation blog post published by a Make-A-Wish blogger might be all the persuasion you need.  

11 Reasons Why You Should Support Make-A-Wish

Make-A-Wish is an organization that you can feel great about supporting. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of deserving children during difficult times in their lives who wish to have their greatest wishes granted. Children typically wish to take a dream vacation, meet a celebrity or public figure, go on a shopping spree, or they wish to be someone for a day, such as a police officer. Wish Kids also tend to want to help others in need.

Make-A-Wish blogger Trevor published an article titled “11 Reasons I Am Thankful For Make-A-Wish” and here is what he has to say about the wonderful organization:

  1. Make-A-Wish helps families in need and works to bring hope, strength, and joy back into the lives of families who have been affected by a serious medical condition.

  2. Make-A-Wish is filled with kind and generous people who truly care about making a difference.

  3. Make-A-Wish is dedicated to helping others, and donates 75 cents of every dollar to wishes and wish-related programs.

  4. Even during the holiday months when the little things in life seem to fall behind, Make-A-Wish is still working just as hard to grant wishes for local children!

  5. Make-A-Wish helps a wide variety of children and families, regardless of their backgrounds and situations.

  6. Make-A-Wish has granted wishes for over 250,000 children.

  10. Wishes help children to feel positive and strong during a difficult time in their life.
