So, how did 5-year-old Ajianaye react to getting a coconut as a bon voyage present? Here’s what her mother said:
“She slept with it in her bed through the morning she left. She could barely contain her excitement!”
I think this is a great reflection on Ajianaye's wish granters. They used their creativity to figure out what they could do for Ajianaye to get her excited about her wish. Somehow, they learned that a coconut was the perfect gift to ramp up the fun before she even boarded her flight.
I often talk - and write - about how creative kids can be with their wishes. But I could say the same for wish granters. They make genuine connections that become the cornerstones of creating experiences tailored to each individual wish kid's interests.
If you're a wish kid, I'd like to hear what your wish granters did to make your wish feel special to you.
