The genuine astonishment that anyone should care about him to this extent gives me goose bumps. I've replayed this video quite a few times at the office because it doesn't say or describe what we mean by “You can help to share the power of a wish®”: This video shows the true meaning of our catch-phrase.
When people donate to Make-A-Wish, they do more than donate to a nonprofit. They are giving a wish kid the opportunity to feel on top of the world. Someone outside of his family cares so much about giving him hope that they gave him $400 to buy games - tools of youthful play and a reprieve from the chaos he’s endured.
Skyler battled leukemia - a disease that frightens most adults upon hearing its name. Five-year-old Skyler fought through the needles, chemotherapy treatments, hair loss and fear associated with this life-threatening cancer.
But then he receives $400 to go on a shopping spree for games and he couldn't be happier. His eyes bug out as he tells a family member he has enough to buy more than one game … maybe even more than 10.
His mom captured “share the power of wish®” in this short video. My personal thanks to her for posting.
And yes, Skyler, I am very happy to say I can believe that.
You can share the power of a wish® by donating today.
