While scrolling through the tweets that rolled in overnight, I stumbled upon this great story (and Make-A-Wish Wisconsin fundraiser). More than 10 years ago, Emily and John both received wishes from Make-A-Wish; John, to have a boat, and Emily, to go to Hawaii with her family. Now, both in remission, Emily and John are tying the knot. And, as an added bonus, they are raising money to grant more life-changing wishes for kids.
Inspired? You can grant wishes in honor of your special event – be it a wedding, birthday or graduation. Set up your online fundraising page here.
(And congratulations, John and Emily! Thank you for helping us grant wishes!)
