April is a great month for North Texas wish supporters! There will be two exciting events to take part in; the first event will take place April 28 and the second April 30. Both events will help Make-A-Wish North Texas raise the necessary funds to help grant wishes in your community to children with critical illnesses. Our partner, Make-A-Wish, grants a wish for an eligible child every 38 minutes. Contributions from individual donors like you makes granting these wishes possible. Taking part in one of these Make-A-Wish events is an easy way to show you care and support Make-A-Wish. Your contribution can help change a child’s life.
