Close Your Eyes and Make A Wish

Close Your Eyes and Make A Wish

I have been a volunteer for the Make A Wish Foundation for nearly 16 years. To say that it’s been amazing is an understatement. Getting to do a job I love everyday and then to get to play a “fairy godmother” of sorts is just icing on the cake. Over the years, you’ve heard me talk about wishes that are granted to kids here in Fox Country. Those wishes couldn’t be granted without the wonderful support of those of you who listen to our radio station each February when we host our “Have A Heart Wish A Thon”. Over the years, many of you have reached out to help at our fundraiser. You’ve stood at intersections in frigid temperatures, and sometimes rain and snow. You’ve let me come speak to your businesses and schools to share what Make A Wish does. I’ve even gone into a mini training in the middle of Kroger before when asked by someone what it takes to be a Make A Wish Volunteer.  The number one question I get asked is ” how do you find out what the child really wants for his wish?” Well, there are lots of things we learn in training. Ways of getting to the heart of the question at hand. But I wanted to share this short video with you. It puts it all in the simplest of terms. It was designed so that even the smallest of kids will have an idea of what Make A Wish can do. We’re more than trips to Disney World and shopping sprees. It’s truly the child’s imagination that drives the wish process. Watch this video and then think about it. What would YOUR one true wish be?  Post your comments and share. Here’s the video.
