11 Reasons I Am Thankful For Make-A-Wish

Nick as Red Lightning
This holiday season, as you think back over the year for what you are most thankful for, I hope that you will remember all of the wish kids Make-A-Wish has helped throughout the year. I remember second grader Nick, who showed Seattle how to fight crime in his wish to be a superhero. I remember when Austin rode with racer Tommy Johnson Jr. at speeds of over 140 mph. And who could forget when Ranger Gabriel stopped that forest fire in Yellowstone?

Make-A-Wish Creates Agents of Change

sam I wish to have a baseball field
Mahatma Gandhi once said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Every child has a fresh, unique take on the world; a new perspective. Children from all over the world have the ability to be agents for change. As we are all aware, some kids do suffer from life-threatening medical conditions, but we can't let that keep them down. When children have their wish granted, the world opens up to them and they have the chance to be inspired. When donors help grant a wish, they can change the world.

There is really nothing typical about the life of a kid with a life-threatening medical condition. And we’ve heard from so many families who tell us that wishes help them feel just like a regular family. And what’s more normal and reassuring for a kid than a loyal pet? That’s why so many kids wish for pets of their own.

University of Michigan Gets a Recruit Unlike Any Other

ESPN My Wish Make-A-Wish
University of Michigan super fan Stephen has passionately supported the maize and blue his entire life (literally…he was brought home from the hospital wearing UM apparel). His wish to experience a “mock recruiting trip” allowed him to visit Ann Arbor as a highly touted Wolverine recruit, and in the process, temporarily forget about his battle with leukemia.
