This spring, we are participating in The Learning Experience’s Let’s Grant Wishes campaign and striving to raise funds to help grant wishes with Make-A-Wish. Let’s Grant Wishes is an initiative that teaches children about the powerful life lesson of philanthropy through unique craft experiences that create hope and help grant wishes for children battling critical illness.
When a wish is granted, a child replaces fear with confidence, sadness with joy and anxiety with hope. Research shows wishes have effects on children’s overall well-being and health outcomes.
More wishes are waiting than ever before and we are hoping to make more wishes possible. If you can, please help by donating today. Every dollar matters. Donate now using the link to my page below.
A note from Hailee’s Parents:
The note above is the Make-A-Wish approved email in cooperation with Hailee Grace’s Daycare. But, we wanted to personally share that we would appreciate your support in helping raise funds for Make-A-Wish. This is a cause that is particularly close to our hearts this year as Hailee has a classmate who may soon be a recipient of one of these wishes. Her friend is suffering from a rare and serious disease with lifelong challenges. While we are working to teach Hailee Grace about giving, charity, and caring for others, we are also having her first experience with loving on a friend with a serious medical condition.
I’m grateful for her “school” for partnering with us throughout the year to help us teach Hailee Grace what it means to be giving and kind. Thank you for your support in helping us with this lesson as well. We want her to grow up with a heart of compassion and empathy for those around her and to find joy in helping meet needs and grant wishes.
We hope you will consider contributing to this cause. But, if not, we certainly welcome your prayers for Hailee’s friend as she approaches a very serious surgery and long recovery in the coming weeks. (If you’d like more specific information on helping that family directly, feel free to reach out). We are hoping that everything works out for her friend to get to be a Make-A-Wish recipient as well.
Thanks so much!
